SPAIN’S first canine lifeguard has been hired to work at a tourist beach in San Pedro del Pinatar, in Murcia.

Bruno the Newfoundland, was put through his paces by owner David Alvarez to assess his life-saving potential.

Alvarez found that Bruno can swim up to five kilometres and can haul more than a ton while in the water.

Newfoundlands – with their webbed feet and water-resistant coats – are natural swimmers, historically used by fishermen to pull in heavy nets.

Other resorts will now be watching Bruno’s paw-formance while they consider adding dogs to the payroll.
