Dublin Civil Defence has acquired an English Springer Spaniel search dog, which was donated by the Peggy Mangan Foundation. The dog is currently undergoing his search dog training at Fitom Kennels under the guidance of trainer Paul Murphy.
Paul has twenty years experience of specialist dog training for the Police Forces in the United States.
Dublin Civil Defence Officer James McConnell described the search dog, Max, as a national resource to the Civil Defence and said ‘the organisation appreciated very much the donation by the Peggy Mangan Foundation, it was a terrific gesture’.
