How a Heroic Mountain Rescue Dog Saves Person Buried Deep Under Snow

Mountain Rescue Dog Flo

While many dog lovers and animal charities devote their time to rescuing pups in need, it’s sometimes the dogs who rescue us. The devotion and loyalty of pet pups towards their owners is something truly special, but rescue dogs are a whole other breed of canine comrades. Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England recently shared a training video, revealing how their Border Collie mountain search dog named Flo is able to save someone trapped deep under snow.

The charity rescue team trains dogs to help search for vulnerable missing people in remote areas who may be trapped due to avalanches or other accidents. The video posted on Twitter asks, “Ever wondered what it would be like to be buried in snow and found by one of our happy search and rescue dogs?” It shows Flo barking and using her paws to dig through the pile of snow before rushing to the person buried underneath.

The Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England website writes, “Flo is an extremely intelligent, confident young dog with remarkable work ethic and drive.” Although the footage isn’t of a real rescue, it gives a first-hand look of what it would be like to be rescued by a heroic hound like Flo. It shows just how vital dogs are to real mountain-related accidents and that their training is essential to saving lives. Here’s to good dogs everywhere!

You can find out more about their cause and see more devoted rescue dogs on the Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England website and Twitter.
