As the warmer weather draws more people to New Mexico's mountains, search and rescue dogs are brushing up on their skills.

The Sandia Search Dogs is a volunteer K-9 group in Albuquerque that helps with search and rescue missions all over the state.

The dogs and handlers usually train six times a month.

Handlers say the dogs are just as passionate about the missions as the humans are.
