Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team have a new recruit.
Two year old Border Collie, Tess, has passed a gruelling three day Search and Rescue assessment in the Peak District. Following her success, Tess will now be responding to emergencies.
Dog Handler Brian Allport said:
Tess’s parents are both operational Search and Rescue Dogs; Father Fly is with Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team and mother, Bess, with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team. The dogs take around two years to train to get to this point.
