Notes: Operational (Oct 2009 - Feb 2014). Keys is a little whirlwind of non-stop energy. She loved search training. When not searching, she will retrieve until your arm drops off. She's a loving dog, best friend to Banks, and will do anything for a tennis ball. Against the odds, Keys had a find on her very first search, locating a woman the authorities had been trying to find for months.
