Search and rescue dog in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Mountain rescue dogs, aka K-9 rescue dogs, can really be man’s best friend in the mountains.

“In the rugged Grand Teton backcountry of Wyoming, dogs are more than pets — their keen sense of smell helps locate avalanche victims,” says explore.org.

Multimedia organization explore.org shoots “films and photos that showcase the natural world – animals, cultures, places, environment.”

In this post, explore.org shares their photos from their K-9 Rescue Dogs album:
