He’s the cutest recruit to ever join the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

But little Corrie, a two month old Belgian Malinois Sheepdog, is more than just a pretty face.

According to handler and crew commander Gary Carroll, the furry pup has done well since he started his training course.

The smart boy has even started to smell people with his toys.

After two years of intensive training, Corrie will team up with the current urban search and rescue dog, Mac, to help search landscapes for survivors.

Gary said, “It’s an extremely exciting time and training started when I got it.

“I am always looking for a dog with a high play instinct because it arouses a strong dog desire for reward.

‘Corrie showed it straight away and is doing very well so far.’

Corrie will be graded and rated and, if successful, will join eligible Macs.

Both will follow the paw prints of the retired urban search and rescue dog Diesel.

Gary and Mac are on standby for incidents across Scotland, but are also part of a UK international search and rescue team.
