A police service dog is being hailed as a hero by many after tracking down some kittens.

The Manitoba RCMP says that the dog, Hix, was out for some exercise with his handler on a country road, "when his nose caught the track to a couple of near-frozen abandoned kittens."

The RCMP made a post to social media and it has quickly taken off, being liked thousands of times, and with hundreds of comments.

Many of those comments sang the praises of the dog.

According to the RCMP, the kittens were taken to a warm place and given food and water.

They will be off to the vet for a checkup shortly.
