OCD Dog Helps Saving Koalas From The Devastation Of Extreme Bushfires In Australia

Bushfires in Australia aren’t just bothering people, but they’re also threatening one of the country’s most beloved natives – the koala. Recently, in bushfires looming and extreme danger ahead, thousands of individuals have been killed. It is agonizing to see these critters being incinerated and facing the loss of their homes. Saving wildlife then becomes one of the biggest concerns.

Besides the force of humans of all sources, there is a joint of “Bear,” a Border Collies being trained to help veterans suffering PTSD and disable children. Coming from a family, Bear was diagnosed with OCD and sent away to a dog pound. This condition made him inappropriate for a house pet, but at the International Fund for Animal Welfare, he is trained to become a detection dog.

Bear is on his mission to detect koalas by sniffing and identifying the scent of the creature’s fur living atop eucalyptus trees. The brave is decked down in special boots to safely walk around the scorched ground. With his keen sense of smell, Bear has been able to track the presence of survivors in the area.
