The black Labrador was originally a police dog. After the Wenchuan earthquake, Sichuan began to establish its own search and rescue dog force. In the spring of 2010, Chengdu public security fire brigade set up Sichuan’s first rescue dog squadron. Tianfu was one of the rescue dogs.

The trainer, Zhu Guoping introduced, Tianfu will alarm as long as the small human odor in the ruins or the ground. But the main job of search and rescue is to find people alive. To change the habit, Zhu Guoping put a piece of clothing or other objects into the ruins and hidden a person under another ruin. When Tianfu find people will reward a ball. In a few months, Tianfu has finally turned into a qualified rescue dog.

In fact, the day after the formation of the rescue dog squadron, Tianfu and his instructor embarked on their first mission. “Because of the altitude reaction, Tianfu was very weak and could hardly walk.” So the task became harder. After smelling it again and again, Tianfu wandered around a stone slab waving its tail and barking repeatedly.

Rescue teams used life detectors to reconfirm that there were signs of life in the ruins.  Hours later, a man was pulled out. It was also the first person rescued by Sichuan Chengdu public security fire brigade in the earthquake. Tianfu is a recuse dog. He is a hero. He saved many people’s lives. In recent years, his health has deteriorated and his injuries have weakened him. On the 5th day, Tianfu left. But he will always live in our memory.
