I had the opportunity to work along side John Reding and Ferro while I was with the PCSAR 4x4 Unit. The bond John and Ferro shared inspired me and I vowed one day I would have a partner like that. I was heartbroken when Ferro was killed. He was an amazing dog. Ferro now has a namesake in my GSD/Husky K9 Search and Rescue partner. Ferro vom Sickenger Moorwerk II is training in ground tracking, air scent, and if he does well, a FEMA collapsed space SAR certification. You were an amazing dog Ferro. I am proud to have submitted this memorial to you. I hope my Ferro does your name proud. -Todd Stewart
