Meet the dogs tasked with saving the world’s deadliest cat.

I met Michelle Schroeder on a scorchingly hot Hoedspruit afternoon; there rarely are any other kinds in this small town bordering South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Soft spoken and unassuming, Michelle is not someone you would immediately marry with the task of working some very difficult dogs. But, like Purposefully Lost’s dogs, there’s a lot more to Michelle than initially meets the eye.
