Gator, an Australian Cattle dog, worked for Conservation Canines from 2001 – 2007. He passed up a promising career in narcotic detection work for life in the great outdoors. Gator worked on a number of studies including Jasper, Vermont, and Brazil. He retired at the age of 10 and happily lived out the rest of his days with his best buddy, Heath.
