Ever wondered what it would be like to be buried in snow and found by one of our happy search and rescue dogs? (Video version). pic.twitter.com/AefuhGGCeh

I hope you or those you love are never buried by an avalanche. I’ve heard horror stories from those who have survived. You’re pretty much helpless until a rescue team arrives. Scary.
There’s an organization from the UK doing what they can to help increase the survival rate. It’s called the “Mountain Rescue Search Dogs of England.”
They train dogs to search for people missing in the snow. After watching their training video, you can’t help but want to give this dog a treat and a good belly rub.
Even the dog looks so proud of himself too! As he should be! These dogs are heroes!
Many of you have asked about the dogs name.
She is Search Dog Flo, a Border Collie from @edalemrt in the Peak District.
She is almost 4 years old and is a brilliant search dog.
