Meet Frida, who is a member of the Mexican Navy. This beautiful Labrador Retriever is a Search and Rrescue dog with over 50 finds under her collar. She has rescued 12 living people, and has earned a commendation from the President of Mexico.

According to the LA Times, she was deployed last Tuesday to assist in finding survivors beneath the Enrique Rebsamen school. Although Frida is 7 years old, she was able to participate on a limited basis with the search, confirming information brought back by Evil and Echo, two Belgian Malinois who are just starting their careers in Search and Rescue.

I can’t post the video from the times, but you can see the whole story here.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
