Heroic husky made honorary search & rescue dog

Thursday, November 8th 2018, 5:02 PM AKST

By Heather Hintze

Nanook the husky is being honored for his heroism in the backcountry.

This summer, the dog made national headlines after he helped rescue a deaf woman who was hiking Crow Pass.

His owner, Scott Swift, said Nanook will typically head into the wilderness for days at a time and follow hikers on their journey.

"I don't worry about him anymore because he's doing it for years and so far he always comes back like a yo-yo," Swift said.

Members of the Alaska Solstice Search Dogs heard about the K9 guardian angel and decided to make him an honorary part of their team.

"The dog is really unique. You don't see dogs that do that, you don't see people who do that, who can help someone out and instinctively know someone needs help and staying with them until that help arrives," said Vikki Gross, the group's co-founder.

Swift said since the rescue this summer, more people have shared stories of their encounters with Nanook. Swift has been contacted by companies wanting to make documentaries, movies or books about his dog.

He's honored by Solstice Search Dogs' award.

"I wish I could say he's had years and years of search and rescue training and all that, but I think intuitively he wants to do it. I've never had him search for anything including a hot dog lost in a snow bank," Swift said.
