“Ever wondered what it would be like to be buried in snow and found by one of our happy search and rescue dogs?”

Attached is a video clip that shows a Border Collie barking and using her paws to urgently dig through the pile of heavy snow. Not long after, we see an adorable snoot peeking through an opening that the dog created.

She didn’t stop there and made sure that she was able to create a hole big enough for the rescue.
