* Team Zip *
RICSAR  To Serve so that others may live.

Zip is a one year old English shepherd.  Vicki adopted him in June 2017 from a
breeder in Pennsylvania who has been active in SAR for more than 30 years.  Zip's
mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and assorted other relatives are all
operational SAR dogs.  He is on track to make his family proud.  

Vicki has trained and handled dogs for 30+ years, including running her beloved
team of Alaskan malamute sled dogs.  She is a retired historian, elder advocate,
and dog trainer.  Team Zip is working toward wilderness air scent certification and
expects to certify in other disciplines as well.
