A famous yellow lab who saved 12 lives and recovered 41 bodies during her career as a search and rescue dog is being honored as she retires from her post. As AFP reported, Frida the rescue dog gained worldwide fame for her heroics after the earthquake that devastated Mexico on September 19, 2017, officially retired from duty this past Monday. Frida, who adorably sniffed through the rubble in her protective goggles and booties in the hours after the tragedy, was sent into doggy retirement at 10 years old in a ceremony at the canine unit of the Mexican marines.
Congratulations to Frida, we wish her a happy retirement of chasing tennis balls and getting daily belly scratches.
