So far in her career Frida has managed to rescue 53 people, including 12 people in life-threatening situations after the 8.1 magnitude quake that devasted Oaxaca earlier this month.

The adorable labrador retriever is a member of the Mexican Marines Canine Unit, and according to reports, is a star employee.

And she's still sniffing to the rescue after a 7.1 magnitude natural disaster again struck Mexico on Tuesday, leaving over 200 dead and many more missing, according to The Guardian.

"Frida", a rescue dog who has been to disaster-afflicted areas over the last four years, is now at work looking for people trapped in rubble - just a week after receiving a special mention by Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, The Independent reports.

While on the job, Frida, along with the other dogs, wears protective gear to ensure she is safe from the elements including large goggles to protect her eyes from dust and debris, dog booties to ensure her paws are not scratched or punctured while digging through the rubble, and a harness so she can be assisted out of any situation by her human coworkers.

Frida's exploits have been hailed on social media.

She's even been thanked by the President of Mexico, who tweeted earlier this month: 'This is Frida.
