(SHELLEY) – A Shelley canine is being recognized for her contribution to search and rescue work.

KPVI reports 7-year-old Kessa, a German Shepherd, received an honorable mention from The American Kennel Club for canine excellence.

Kessa was the first civilian canine in the U.S. to be certified for cadaver search by the North American Police Work Dog Association.

Owner Ann Christensen says Kessa’s training has been used to locate pioneer graves along the old Oregon Trail during the past two summers.
