A hero police dog rescued an eight-year-old who had wandered from his grandmother’s home and got lost near a mine. Khasar, a two-year-old German shepherd, managed to pick up on the missing youngster’s scent and locate him about one kilometre away.

When he was found, the boy was standing barefoot in the snow and was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with hypothermia.

The child, who has not been named, is now back at home with his mother in Kiselyovsk, in the Kemerovo region, thanks to the quick actions of his canine rescuer.

When police arrived they sent Khasar to search for him and he led the team to part of a mine where rocks are dumped. On seeing the youngster, one of the officers climbed into the dump, wrapped him in his jacket and took him to his grandmother’s home.

Before joining the police the highly skilled dog came from Brifos kennel in Novosibirsk, run by Elena Sheuermann.

She recalled: 'He is a mixed strain breed, which means he is the result of cross breeding between a show and a working type dog. Many breeders argue against mixed breeds, but I've been working in this direction for several years and I think rather successfully. 

'Khasar was extremely active and independent; I thought that he was meant for service and I am happy to see how well he is working as a part of Kiselyovsk police team. What he's done now, finding the boy's traces hours after his disappearance, where other dogs failed, fills me with pride for the dog and his handler and, of course, joy for the family'.

What would we do without them? "Man's Best Friend". Wow, Khasar! Take a bow.
