Scuola Italiana Cani Salvataggio

That's Italian for Water Dog Rescue School. The Scuola Italiana Cani Salvataggio trains dogs, mostly Newfoundlands, to jump out of helicopters and rescue people. It is really mind blowing to imagine Katy could have been trained to do this. According to the school, "one dog alone can pull a boat full of 30 people for between 300 and 2000 meters."

The Italian Coast Guard uses them for rescues along the coast and in lakes. These dogs jump out of helicopters!
