A magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico on Tuesday, killing over 230 people so far and injuring thousands. The earthquake comes less than two weeks after another, more powerful quake struck Oaxaca, leaving much of the region in ruins, and a large-scale rescue operation is currently underway to locate those trapped beneath the rubble.
Frida, a 7 year old Labrador, plays an integral role in that operation. Working with SEMAR, the Mexican Navy’s canine unit, the brave rescue dog is currently hard at work searching for survivors. She was at the scene of the Enrique Rébsamen school, which collapsed and killed at least 20 children.
Equipped with her own personal protective equipment, including customized boots and goggles, Frida has saved over 50 people in her short career, a number of whom were rescued from the rubble in Oaxaca.
As she works tirelessly, she’s won the hearts of people across the world. #searchdog #SARdog #workingdog #herodog #dogswithjobs #amazingdogs #mexicoearthquake #labrador #mansbestfriend #dogsoffreedom
