We Have To Talk About Frida, A Very Good And Brave Rescue Dog

Not all heroes wear capes, especially if they've got blue booties.

Among the heroes at work in the aftermath of the earthquakes in Mexico, there's one that's especially stolen our hearts: this disaster rescue dog named Frida.

Basically, Frida is Paw Patrol IRL.

Last week, after rescuing 12 earthquake victims in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, she returned home to a hero's welcome.

Así se recibe a una ¡HERMOSA HEROÍNA! Te amamos 🇲🇽✨ #Frida #GRACIAS #AyudaCDMX #SomosMexico

Her bravery has since inspired people around the world — and some very good memes.

Because Frida isn't just a national hero...

She's also a muse for the arts...

A symbol of hope and giving...

A daily reminder to keep going, even when the going gets ruff—er, rough...

A guardian angel with paws...

A style icon...

A point of national pride in Mexico...

A much-needed furball of joy...

A rallying point for the community...

"March to put Frida the rescue dog on the $500 Bill"

"March to put Frida the rescue dog on the $500 Bill"

And a symbol of all that is good in the world.

She's someone who isn't afraid to take the lead...

Who's always there even for the little guys...

And who serves as the sweetest spokespup for all of the rescue dogs saving lives everywhere, every day.

So, here's to you, Frida. Because being a hero is hard work.

And while we'll never be able to thank you enough...

"Thanks Frida, my love."

Just know that while you've been saving lives, you've also stolen our hearts.
