Since childhood, Connie has had cats and dogs as part of her family. You may hear her say that her life would not be complete without her pet menagerie. While living on a ranch, she was introduced to the McNabb (cattle dog) breed and subsequently raised three litter of purebred puppies. When her business partner Vinnie Jura became MAR trained, Connie felt a natural “calling” that she, too, could help reunite people with their beloved pets. She recently completed the MAR training course and often joins Vinnie on searches. The Fetchem team will continue to grow with the future addition of a trailing/tracking canine especially trained to help locate displaced dogs and cats.
