Sadly, she's been busy lately. "Her valuable help and love for humans push her to give the most of herself to save lives", reads a tweet from Mexico's navy.

Frida works for the Mexican Navy's (SEMAR) Canine Unit.

The secretary of education said authorities have not been able to locate the parents of the girl identified in widespread Mexican media reports as 12-year-old Frida Sofia.

Frida, a Labrador attached to the Mexican Navy's Canine Unit, has been hard at work looking for survivors in the rubble of Mexico City after a 7.1 magnitude natural disaster struck earlier this week and claimed the lives of at least 273 people. There are even cartoons of Frida and some have suggested she should run for office. She belongs to SEMAR and has helped save 52 lives in various natural disasters at national and worldwide levels'. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Mexico. Unfortunately, there's still plenty of rescue work to be done in Mexico City.

The rescue, which was televised across the country, ended up stretching into a daylong vigil for the country, with rescue workers continuing to search in rain and darkness in the early hours of Thursday morning.

However, as of yesterday it remained unclear whether the event will go ahead as planned, with the rescue and recovery efforts continuing in the wake of the magnitude-7.1 quake that killed more than 200 people and toppled homes, schools and apartment buildings.
