Breed: German shepherd
Joined our pack in 2015
Scents: 9, including rhino horn & suspected poacher tracking
Chai is a sweet, shy shepherd mix who is slow to warm up to people, but fast at everything else. In the field, she moves like lightning, and detects even faster. And once she feels comfortable, she gives her heart forever; she is endlessly devoted to her handler, with whom she patrols and protects the wildlife in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. Chai and her brother, Earl, were donated to WD4C at 10 months old by a K9 deputy sheriff in Virginia, who bred an outstanding litter from her search and patrol dogs and knew these two pups would find a perfect home in our pack.
