Frida is a very special dog – this brave Labrador Retriever was specially trained to be a rescue dog and recently worked to locate survivors trapped under the wreckage brought by the devastating Mexico earthquake in September 2017. Wearing goggles, all-terrain boots, and a padded vest, she has done much heroic work with the Mexican Navy’s (SEMAR) Canine Unit and saved many lives.

Because of her heroism, Frida has become beloved in Mexico, and she now has her very own beautiful mural.

Frida’s mural is located in Mexico City’s Condesa district and was created by the artist Celeste Byers.


It depicts brave Frida wearing her indispensable goggles and vest, radiating light and bright colors, surrounded by garden dahlias, Mexico’s national flowers, and roses.

“She is a symbol of strength and hope in these times and I painted her to bring positivity to Roma Norte, a very affected area of the city that I love,” Byers wrote on her Instagram.

Not all heroes wear capes – some wear special khaki vests and doggy boots.


Working with her unit, Frida has rescued over 50 people trapped in the rubble after the Mexico earthquake. Her help during the rescue missions was priceless and literally saved lives in the area ravaged by the natural disaster. Her work and ability to lift the spirits of the country’s people have made the dog into something of a celebrity figure – but, hopefully, she will not have to work now for as long as possible – and will have time to just bask in her fame.
