Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog

An unforgettable memoir from a search-and-rescue pilot and her spirited canine partner In the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing, Susannah Charleson clipped a photo from the newspaper of an exhausted canine handler, face buried in the fur of his search-and-rescue dog. A dog lover and pilot with search experience herself, Susannah was so moved by the image that she decided to volunteer with a local canine team and soon discovered firsthand the long hours, nonexistent pay, and often heart-wrenching results they face. Once she qualified to train a dog of her own, she adopted Puzzle, a strong, bright Golden Retriever puppy who exhibited unique aptitudes as a working dog but who was less interested in the role of compliant house pet. Scent of the Missing is the story of Susannah and Puzzles adventures as they search for the missinga lost teen, an Alzheimers patient wandering in the cold, signs of the crew amid the debris of the space shuttle Columbia disasterand unravel the mystery of the bond between humans and dogs....

    I remember once, years ago, walking to an Arizona Cardinals game with my father. It was a late, golden afternoon; I was young and I more than likely had a book clutched in my hands to read during the boring parts of the game. Along the pedestrian route to the stadium, police officers were directing traffic and keeping people in line. Several of them were on horses, massive brown and black animals with their own kind of uniform. I was utterly fascinated by the horses, even though I wasn't allowed ...more

    I loved this book, have already read it twice. The writing is more than good, funny at times, and the narrative is well-balanced between the story of Puzzle and the process of training her, and the actual search and rescue work, both with and without Puzzle. I think the criticism that the reader doesn't necessarily find out the results of some of the searches is a bit misled, the story is about the partnership itself, and as the author states several times, when there is no resolution on some of ...more

    The writing was pretty good as was the reading, both done by the author, although both could slow down. Sometimes they'd both be at a low point & then it was a chore to keep going, but generally it was interesting. I've never read another about Search & Rescue (SAR).

    She does a great job showing that search & rescue is very important work, but the ratio of time invested to time worked is very low. Both parts of the team train for years to get certified. They get called out several to

    This is a thoroughly enjoyable, interesting and informative book exploring a personal journey from small plane pilot to Search & Rescue work. One of the best aspects of the book is the absence of romanticism in regard to S&R work.

    Glimpses of how her S&R organization works, the different dog\handler teams and the trust they have with each other. As Ms Charleson earns her stripes and becomes eligible to raise & train a potential canine partner. The time and training demands, let al

    I am not that familiar with the search and rescue aspect involving dogs, so it was nice to get to learn about this field. Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search and Rescue Dog really made me appreciate the devotion and dedication that the men, women and dogs spend day after day searching for people. The word “quit” is not in their vocabulary.

    I could relate to Susannah and Puzzle’s strong bond. I raised a guide dog for the blind and we got close. His name was Patriot and we rel

    Finally an author who can write with a dog story worth telling has come along! In Scent of the Missing Susannah Charleson illuminates the often romanticized, but little known world of search and rescue dogs. She starts with her own introduction to the SAR, as a field assistant and finishes the book with an accounting of the training of her own SAR dog, Puzzle. If you are expecting sappy, feel-good accounts of rescues you may be disappointed. Susannah tells it like it is including the disappointm

    This is the first book about a dog that hasn't made me cry and I get teary while reading most dog books. This is a fearless look at life and what happens when you decide to help other people. Susannah Charleston doesn't mention how she really earns a living and pays for all that dog food, but you get the feeling that she would scrub floors to keep her rescue dogs well fed and in good health. Yes, she has a search and rescue dog and several cute little Poms that she has taken in as well. The stor ...more
