Rescue dogs are vital elements in search & rescue operations

Dogs, who have long been considered man's best and most loyal friends, have become the heroes of the September 19 earthquake.

Particularly, “Frida”, member of the Canine Unit of the Mexican Navy, who has found over 50 people throughout her career, and whose assistance has proved vital in the search & rescue efforts in Mexico City and in Juchitán last September 7.

“Marina-chan” – as the Japanese have fondly dubbed her for the name on her vest – has become somewhat of a sensation in social networks, yet she isn't the only rescue dog of the Mexican Navy.

Rescue dogs are key elements of rescue operations, and the Mexican Navy, through its Twitter account, has acknowledged the work of their animals, who “go the extra mile.”
