A U.K. firm has developed a camera system that relays video and audio information from rescue dogs, helping man's best friend to lend a paw in emergency situations, the BBC reports.

The system is called PAWS--a heart-melting backronym that stands for "Portable, All-terrain Wireless System" and takes the form of a harness that's saddled on to the brave rescue hounds.

The Beeb has a video of the system in action, complete with adorable dog. Developed by Wood & Douglas, the harness features a camera that sits atop the dog's bonce, and relays video and sound back to a monitor.
