Avalanche rescue dogs are very, very good dogs

Think the people who travel in avalanche country are hardcore adventurers.

Well, meet the dogs who rush to their rescue.

Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England has shared a dramatic video of just how skilled these canine alpinists are when it comes to finding humans caught in a slide.

These dogs really dig.

Not every pooch is cut out for mountain and backcountry life.

It takes a lot of work to get to this level and become a SAR dog.

And commitment from their handlers.

Often they are on the hunt for missing, lost or buried people. And, the outcomes are not always happy.

But this really gives you perspective on their jobs.

Flo, by the way, is the dog featured in the rescue video that has gone viral.

The video quickly gained more than 1 million views.

And little wonder.

As can be heard at the end, “What a good girl,” indeed.
