So Colorado: Avalanche rescue dog


(slow-loading video, please be patient:)

Meet Tikka, Colorado’s newest avalanche rescue pup-in-training, and her handler, Erich. They are currently based at the Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (aka A-Basin) west of Denver. And yes, she’s a golden retriever.

On average, avalanches kill six people in Colorado every year, so Tikka has an important job ahead of her.
