Retired Detection Dog CeCe | San Bernardino

Handler Mike Cochrane and Detection Dog CeCeIn July 2010, the National Detector Dog Training Center (DDTC) recommended the retirement of San Bernardino County dog CeCe due to a medical condition. Luckily for CeCe, her handler, Mike Cochrane, was willing and able to adopt her. CeCe’s medical condition requires her to be on medication for the rest of her life. Hats off to Mike for committing to her care!

One of the highlights of CeCe’s career occurred in 2007. The team intercepted multiple parcels containing concealed Indian mangos, a host of Oriental fruit fly and other significant pests. The interceptions resulted in a nationwide alert, identified an international smuggling pathway, and resulted in a $40,000 fine against the shipping company.
