Sully was bred at Trailrunners and selected for Calgary City Police department as a detection dog. His mother is Trailrunners Lily Belle.
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. He was in service until he retired at 14, which 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.
