A search and rescue dog with 125 callouts under her collar has retired from service.
Beck has been a stalwart of the Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association for nine years.
Her handler Chris Francis is the association’s call-out co-ordinator and with him she has attended rescues in risky and often atrocious conditions mostly on the central Lakeland fells with her home team – Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.
Beck has also taken part in searches in the Scottish Borders, Highlands, York-shire and Lancashire and she was also responsible for finding an elderly man in south Lakeland who had fallen and become stuck in woodland near Newby Bridge.
Chris got Beck as a puppy in 2008 from an estate in Keswick where she was a part of a working strain which made her ideal for search and rescue.
She became a qualified search dog in 2012 after training.
Her retirement took place in the Newlands Valley where she graded as a search dog in 2012.
The pup Chris hopes to grade as her successor, Gill, started training the same the weekend as Beck retired.
A team spokesman said Beck was a gentle, amiable dog known for her grin when she met people.
“She will be missed for her dogged persistence at searches and will enjoy a well-earned retirement,” he added.
