Mij, who has saved more lives than any other dog, has retired after a seven-year career that has seen her save 14 lives.

The Collie, who has led more than 200 search and rescue missions, pioneered scent detection techniques which have since been used in some of the country’s most high-profile missing person searches.

During her career she became known as the most dependable dog and was called upon by police and search teams across the country, helping to save people from Scotland to Cornwall.
