Ostoja, the elder brother, has been a dog handler and dog trainer for 13 years and has been MDD Granite's handler since 2009. Dragoslav became interested in dog handling and became a MDD handler in 2005, the same year that MDD Charlie was donated to EKO Dem. This dynamic duo have been together ever since and spend nearly all of their time together, exercising and playing.
Dragoslav and Ostoja described both dogs as "excellent" with a keen desire to work, making them very focused, and exceedingly good mine detectors. Dragoslav added that MDD Charlie, who is a very large German Shepherd, has an extremely gentle personality, which is in contrast to his rather intimidating stature!
MLI extends our sincere thanks to all of our donors who support our Mine Detection Dog program, which enables MDDs like Charlie and Granite to save tens of thousands of lives in countries around the world. Thank you for your support!
