Mexico’s navy presented Frida the dog with a toy at a Monday ceremony to wish her joy during her retirement. She is 10.

Frida became a symbol of hope as Mexicans eagerly awaited signs of life following the Sept. 19, 2017 quake that killed more than 300.

Over the course of her career, she was credited for finding at least 41 bodies and a dozen people alive. She also worked two international missions after earthquakes in Haiti and Ecuador.
