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.
