Eromit recognizes and salutes the hard work and dedication of search and rescue volunteers in
helping out when disaster strikes. We were particularly touched by the efforts of the search and
rescue teams that attended the avalanche tragedy near Fernie in December of 2008 that took the
lives of eight young men from Sparwood, BC. We have been inspired to give back to these types
of volunteers. Starting in 2010, we pledge to donate one puppy per year to an experienced
certified search and rescue handler in Canada.
Our breeding program cultivates the temperament, drive, and soundness that is essential to a
good search and rescue dog and it is our hope that these puppies will be able to make a
difference to their search and rescue teams, their communities, and to our world as a whole.
Interested parties may apply for a puppy by filling out the form below. In order to be considered,
you should be a member of a recognized search and rescue team and should have prior
experience training a search and rescue dog. At this time, only applicants from Canada will be
considered. The donated puppy will be selected from one of our future litters with input from the
We are currently accepting applications from experienced SAR handlers for 2016 and 2017.
