A person is recovering in hospital after recently being located in the snow by RCMP police dog Jerry.
RCMP Dog Services were called in to help find an individual reported missing in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. Weather conditions were bad at the time.
Corporal Jason Muzzerall and Police Service Dog Jerry were called in to assist in the search and tracked their way through deep snow to find the person partially buried in snow and unresponsive.
RCMP say the person might not have survived had it not been for the response of Muzzerall and Jerry.
