“I am OVER THE MOON excited and proud to announce that Balynda Brown and her search dog, Bravo, just became "Mission Ready" tonight and have my "stamp of approval" to work lost pet cases! Balynda spent over a year of rigorous training with Bravo, training 3 to 4 times a week. He is an INCREDIBLE tracker. North Carolina is BLESSED to have Balynda and Bravo as a new resource to help recover lost pets.”

"Thank you so much to this entire team!!!! Mary, Balynda, Sarah, and, of course, the brilliant Bravo! You all are incredible and truly talented. And, thank you to all of our friends and family for the love and support through one of the hardest few days Tyler and I have ever had. We had 2 sitings the first day running North on Elizabeth and then a few more in the same spot the second day, but after that it was Bravo that helped find him. Last but certainly not least, thank you to the family that found him. Waking up at 4am to scratches on the door, driving back to Northgate to find my number and then calling is what community is all about. Marvin is now healthy, happy and sleeping peacefully at home. We love you all!
"For anyone who loses a pet please call Balynda Brown! She was a big part of getting Brandy back! She helped put up posters, set up scent trails, feed stations, and even came out at 7 in the morning and spent 4 hours in the general location she was seen at. She really knows what she is doing!”
"On February 14 after just moving in to our new home 4 days earlier our little 17 lb American hairless terrier, Peanut somehow came out of her collar and ran off... After 6 days of following Balynda’s instructions and no sightings with snow in the forecast Balynda and Bravo drove almost 5 hours to come and track Peanut.
Every day no matter what time it was if I had a question I could reach out and text Balynda and she would answer and be there to guide me through the day. After 11 long days Peanut was located exactly where Bravo had tracked her to. If it was not for Bravo’s tracking and Balynda’s expertise and guidance I don’t think our Peanut would have made it home. We are forever grateful for Balynda and Bravo."
"Smokey is home after his 24 days of being lost!! A neighbor spotted him in her crawl space and called us. He’s a lot skinnier but in otherwise good health according to the vet. Thanks to all who have helped us look for him.
A very special thanks to Balynda Brown and Sarah from BravoK911. These amazing ladies gave us hope, constant support and check-ins. They brought trail cameras, they brought in Bravo to help us track where Smokey had been, they kept us vigilant on posters, social media, etc. I have to admit I was getting very disheartened with him being gone so long. Balynda and Sarah kept building me back up. There are not enough words to cover how amazing they are."
"I have known Bravo personally for several years, both before and after his training. I have seen the incredible progress that he has made. Bravo was born to do this job, and he loves it! There is no other team than Balynda and Bravo I would trust to help me find my lost pet."
