When a family member goes missing without a sign for nearly a month, it’s hard not to think something bad happened. The feelings of hopelessness and loss has to be overbearing. It gets to a point where you need closure, no matter the outcome.

Who could imagine the solution would be in the form of a German shepherd?

A Philadelphia man heard about the missing man and offered the services of his cadaver sniffing dog who made the grizzly discovery within a hour of arriving in the neighborhood the missing man was hinted to be.

It almost sounds like a make believe story or a cartoon where Underdog or Scooby Doo does the impossible. But this is a true story and thanks to a real life hero in the form of a specialty trained search and rescue dog, a family has their closure.
