Frida stepped up when she was needed. Last month, when a 7.1 magnitude earthquake shook Mexico near its capital, the 7-year-old Labrador Retriever helped the Mexican Navy’s canine unit search for survivors.
Now, she’s being honored with a mural in Mexico City, an Instagram post from painter Celeste Byers shows. She worked with graffiti artist Uneg, according to Condé Nast Traveler, to create the nearly two-story high work in the fashionable Condesa neighborhood, which was hard-hit by the quake.
In her vest, goggles and booties, Frida aided teams at the collapsed Enrique Rebsamen school, among other places affected by the natural disaster. Although it’s unclear how many people she found trapped after the quake, during Frida’s career she has found 52 people; of those, 12 were found alive and rescued.

The pictures of Frida in her Navy-issued gear was popular online, where the good dog received a lot of love for her rescue efforts. Now, people can see her goggles and friendly face smiling out over the city she worked hard to help.
