Scramble goes to the dogs
Teams from Arizona Search Dogs recently visited Scramble restaurant for a fundraising event. The breakfast-all-day eatery at 9832 N. 7th St. donated 15 percent of all sales on the night of May 29 to the nonprofit group, while search dogs and their handlers visited with restaurant patrons outside. Among them were, clockwise from left: Moose, who sniffs noses with new trainee Rainey with handler Don Peyton of the Phoenix Fire Department; Mike Rohme of the Phoenix Police Department with his dog, Ruger (out of frame); Hoss, with his handler Dana Medlin of the Phoenix Fire Department and Dana’s 9-year-old daughter, Addie. Proceeds from the evening will be used toward paying for the training and care of two new search dogs: Free and Rainey. There are less than 20 search dogs currently in the organization, the majority of them being black Labrador retrievers. For more information, visit www.ArizonaSearchDog.org.
