A 12 year-old boy owes his life to one noseworthy pup that had the wherewithal to dig tirelessly to find him amongst a massive pile of avalanche debris at the French ski area of La Plagne.

Without avalanche gear, the family of three ventured into an off-piste area and at some point– their boy was caught in a slide reports The Local. It’s unclear whether they actually triggered the avalanche or if it released naturally.

After being buried for some 40 minutes, the courageous dog located the boy, who suffered a broken leg in the incident. According to one source, the survival rate for those buried for over 40 minutes is a miniscule 20%.

In the meantime, the unidentified rescue dog will be awaiting his, ‘2018 Good Boy Award’ whilst chomping on a veal cutlet.
