This Badass Dog That Saved 12 People In Mexico Will Melt Your Heart

In her short life, she has already saved 52 people from different accidents and disasters.

Everybody stop what you're doing and meet Frida, the coolest dog in Mexico and quite possibly the whole world.

Frida is a beautiful Labrador, the star of the Mexican Navy's (SEMAR) Canine Unit.

In her short life, she has saved 52 people from different accidents and disasters.

And just in Oaxaca alone, she rescued 12 earthquake victims.

Even the office of Mexico's President has taken to Twitter to weigh in on Frida's badassery.

Ella es #Frida, pertenece a la @SEMAR_mx y ha ayudado a salvar 52 vidas en distintos desastres naturales a nivel na… https://t.co/7xlcgsyLVX

Of course, people love Frida.

You may be cool but you will never be Frida la perrita con lentes y calcetitas que rescata humanos cool

If tomorrow was election day, she would surely be Mexico's first dog president.

Frida, una heroína de cuatro patas 🐾🌹 miembro de @SEMAR_mx .🇲🇽🇲🇽🐾🌹 Amemos y cuidemos a los animales como se merece… https://t.co/y9RIZME8Io

"Frida is a heroine with four legs. Let's love and care for animals like they deserve. Let's evolve."

Just look at her goggles! DOG GOGGLES!

And her little shoes!

Frida doesn't dress that way to just look adorable. Her goggles protect her eyes from smoke and other substances. Her shoes allow her to dig and walk on rough terrain without getting hurt. Thanks to her harness she can easily go in and out of areas that are inaccessible to humans.

When SEMAR published her pictures, the internet melted with love.

@nahimachoura Hermosa y valiente!!!!!!!!

"Beautiful and brave!"

Cuties like her remind us how close we are to the animal world.

@nahimachoura Está bien bonita una heroica perrita 🐶💟

"She's so beautiful. A heroic doggy!"

And how much we have to thank them for.

@PueAPrimeraHora @FUNDAPEPUEBLA Gracias!!! 😘🐶🐕💗

And, above all, give back some of the infinite love they give us.

@PresidenciaMX @SEMAR_mx Cuidenla,descanso,calidad de vida,un hogar, jubilarse joven...

"Cared for, rested, enjoying quality of life, living in a home, early retirement..."

There's no doubt the old proverb is true:

@PueAPrimeraHora @Paty_UrbinaZ Excelente 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 él mejor amigo del hombre!! 😃

"Excellent. A man's best friend."
