The Labrador dog that won everyone’s hearts in 2017 for her rescue work has died this Tuesday, November 15. Frida, the rescue dog has always been known for her good rescue work, to the point of having a statue in her honor and a veterinary clinic. She was trained from a very young age and since then she has shown great rescue skills.
In 2017 there was an earthquake in Mexico in which dogs were the main protagonists for their work as rescuers. In Puebla, a statue was installed in honor of Frida, one of the dogs that saved the lives of people who had been trapped under the rubble. In it you can see Frida with her protective mask and her small neoprene shoes, the equipment she used when participating in rescue operations. In her life trajectory, Frida found a total of 55 people trapped.
In addition, in the south of Mexico City, a veterinary clinic was built with the name of Frida. The care would be free for all pets and would have veterinarians trained to attend any emergency, vaccination service, a lobby, green areas, waiting room, pharmacy and medical care area.
On November 15, 2022, Frida the rescue dog died, according to the statement, due to causes due to her age.
Frida was already 13 years old and retired from her work as a rescuer. In 2019 he had already retired from his rescue work after 9 years. The Labrador puppy began her training with the Army as soon as she was born, on April 12, 2009, and almost from that moment her trainers saw in her unusual abilities. Training a dog for this equipment lasts about 12 months. However, Frida showed “very outstanding” skills from the beginning.
