"John and his dogs came to my study site for two days in 2007. They found a study turtle that had escaped from a holding pen and over a dozen new turtles in six hours! Without John and his amazing dogs it would have taken me countless man-hours, years...to find that many turtles! John and his dogs are amazing to behold and they are a great asset to anyone working with the conservation of box turtles."
--Steve O'Neil, Naturalist at Earthshine Mountain Lodge in Lake Toxaway, NC.
