Mexico's Naval rescue dog becomes furry face of hope

- Frida is a rescue dog with a life-saving mission in Mexico.

In Mexico, dogs are an important part of the rescue effort after several earthquakes have shaken parts of the country.

Canines like Friday are being used to help find victims buried in the rubble.

Frida is outfitted with protective booties and ‘doggles’ to protect her from harmful terrain and dust.

She is a member of the Mexican Navy and has saved more than 50 lives during and after natural disasters.

Now like a superhero, she's on a mission to help save as many people as she can, following the deadly earthquake.

Frida has become a furry face of hope as some were still being pulled alive from under the rubble after a 7.1 magnitude quake killed at least 400.

And on Saturday, a magnitude 6.1 temblor was reported about 11 miles south-southeast of Matias Romero in the state of Oaxaca, which was the region most battered by a magnitude 8.1 quake on Sept. 7.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
