There’s a new national hero in Mexico, and she walks on all fours and likes scratches behind her ears. Meet Frida, a 6-year-old rescue dog with the Mexican navy.
After the recent deadly earthquake in Mexico that claimed nearly 350 lives, Frida has become a symbol of hope and strength. The pooch has been credited with saving over 50 lives in previous disasters in Honduras, Ecuador, and Haiti
Frida wears a special outfit for a reason. The goggles protect her eyes from smoke and debris, and her boots protect her paws while she digs and walks across rough terrain.
People across the Internet have fallen in love with Frida.
Frida’s fame has landed her likeness on a really cool pin for sale. All proceeds from the sales go to the Mexican Red Cross. Buy one! Or two!
