He was able to establish a very solid bond with his handler, Alex Yela, according to staff of the Ibara fire station.

The earthquake that occurred last April 16 inured over 2,000 people and killed at least 654. The said quake left buildings and roads severely damaged and knocking out power lines along the Pacific Coastline. In a statement released to the media, President Rafael Correa said, “Reconstruction will cost billions of dollars,” and the impact on economic growth “could be huge.”
