Italian Lifeguards and Dogs training for search and rescue swimming, and retrieval. It's fairly incredible... But what Dogs do best.
Would you entrust a dog to carry you to shore? I know I certainly would! I wish we had more programs like this in the states- I know of ONE in NC, and they host exhibitions at some of the local lakes, but nothing like this.

YUP! We're adopting a baby Black Lab/Newfoundland mix from a local nearby soon....Newfies are KNOWN for their amazing strength, swimming ability and instinctive and reactive protection of their owners--especially small children.
Isn't she cute?! We're leaning towards naming her Onyx or Dahlia...not sure yet!
