“The coolest thing about Eddie is once I put his tracking harness on, he knows what we are about to do. No commands need to be given.”

Rockdale Healthcare in Conyers, Georgia, reported an elderly woman missing just before midnight on Monday. The police had very little information to go on, so Officer Maya Scruggs and K9 Officer Eddie started the trail cold. They started at the medical facility.

Eddie immediately picked up on a scent and led the officers into a wooded area. He was released and led the officers straight to the woman, who was soaking wet, on the ground and confused. Officers credit Eddie with saving the woman's life.

His tracking efforts are specifically used for lost children, Alzheimer’s patients and any person deemed "at risk."
