A massive 7.1 earthquake rocked Mexico earlier this week, killing 230 people, the majority of which were in the country’s capital, Mexico City. At least 21 children were killed when a primary school collapsed. It was the second major earthquake to hit Mexico in two weeks.
Thousands of emergency services, military, and civilians are currently searching through rubble across the country for survivors. Among them are Frida, a six-year-old Mexican Navy rescue dog who has saved 52 people throughout her career serving in Honduras, Ecuador and Haiti, according to the office of Mexico’s President.

The caption reads: “This is Frida. She belongs to SEMAR and has helped save 52 lives in various natural disasters at national and international levels.”
Frida’s adorable outfit has a purpose. The goggles are to protect her eyes from smoke and debris, while the boots protect her feet from digging and walking on rough terrain.
Meet Frida. She's in the search & rescue division of the Mexican Navy along with two German shepherds. Sadly, she's been busy lately. 14/10 pic.twitter.com/82nlfkvodW
