Sully has done essential police work in both Alberta and Saskatchewan and was Western Canada's first Cadaver detection dog. He works to find missing person remains and helps solve crimes by finding the evidence (however gruesome) needed. His age, still in service at 11 years (now retired at 14), shows the excellent health and soundness of Trailrunners working Labrador retrievers. His success rate in "finds" shows the excellence in ability bred into these dogs.
