Meet John Rucker and his Boykin Spaniels, who help track ornate box turtles in MT
Last year, Rucker’s dogs found more than 500 turtles.
A dog like Jenny Wren has worked almost her whole life, since she was one year old. Now, she’s 11, and an excellent turtle tracker, according to Rucker.
“That’s an example of the dogs being right on the cutting edge of conservation efforts, trying to save this species,” he said.
