Red, a search and rescue dog with the Staffordshire Search and Rescue Team, has died after 12 years of service.

The National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA) announced on Facebook that he had died from cancer on 30 November.

The border collie joined the team in 2011 at eight weeks old. During his career, he helped in over 250 searches.

Red retired in 2022, due to his diagnosis. Despite a prognosis of six weeks to six months, he lived for 12 months.
