Love this breed! Funny you mention that about rescue dogs, because you're right -- and yet I still think of these "working dogs" as simply rescue dogs. Google tells me they're SAR (Search and Rescue Dogs) now.

Don't know that I've shared this story before, but I was shocked to find my French Bulldog, Penny, (about as far from a SAR as any) has an innate desire to rescue. Back when Katie was still around, she had gotten herself under a bed full of storage, and was unable to back herself out. She was stuck under the bed with boxes blocking her path, and started crying. Penny heard her, ran to her, poked under the bed, assessed her situation, ran to the other side of the bed and started pulling out everything that was blocking Katie's path until she was able to move forward the rest of the way out from under the bed. I just stood back and watched, as it was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen a dog do. Then there was the the time I was running downhill with Penny, tripped and wiped out and for a good couple of minutes couldn't move. She was in terror, trying to find help, licking my face, and finally so relieved when I got up again. Dogs are amazing creatures.  My SAR:

Awwwwwww! Penny can rescue me any time! :D
