Published

on

A four-year-old dog named Baekgu has become Korea’s first honorary rescue dog for the critical role it played in the search and rescue for a missing elderly woman.

The owner, a 90-year-old who suffers from dementia had collapsed in a rice field, and according to the South Chungcheong Provincial Government and emergency officials, Baekgu stayed by her side, keeping her body temperature up even while it rained until rescue workers were eventually able to detect her location after detecting the dog’s body temperature using a drone with a thermal camera even as the aged mother began experiencing symptoms of hypothermia.

Rescue workers said the drone could not detect the woman because her body temperature had dropped as it was raining heavily and only the dog’s temperature kept her alive and also allowed the drone detected a signal of her whereabouts.

The woman’s daughter, Shim, said “Baekgu was an abandoned dog and became part of our family when we saved him from attacks by another dog three years ago, ISouth Korea Gives A Dog First Honorary Rescue Title After Saving A Dying Aged Woman
