This hero dog helps rescue koalas and he did a very great job! Meet Smudge, the canine hero who wore fireproof boots to help the animal’s life-saving efforts. Smudge helped firefighters rescuing animals from flames in the devastating Australian wildfires.
In some places, rescuers can just see koala survivors hanging on trees. However, the brush in this place is too thick to be seen by rescuers. Leigh said: “The trees can be really big, the canopy can be really dense and you just can’t see them by looking.”
However, Smudge was hired to the team after volunteers discovered his strong ability to smell, in just five minutes, twice as much koala rescue as humans did in one hour. Working with Smudge has eased it for rescuers to save more koalas – in just a bit of the time. This amazing dog helps rescue koalas in a much shorter time than humans.
