Joining the famous mine-detecting dog Patron, Ukraine has another canine hero lending a paw to help the country’s war effort.

Four-year-old dog Nicole, together with her owner, who works as a train attendant at Ukraine's railway operator Ukrzaliznytsia, has already completed more than a dozen evacuation trips, during which she helps Ukrainians cope with the stress of evacuation.

The four-legged friend had to become a "train attendant" due to the war, as there was no one to leave the animal with.

A story about Nicole appeared on the website of Ukrzaliznytsia, Ukraine’s state railway company.

In it, it is noted that the new "train attendant" is polite, serious and vigilant. She also entertains people and helps them cope with stress.

Ukraine's TSN news service also made a report about the dog.

According to TSN, Tetiana found Nicole as a puppy at the train station in the city of Dnipro. Tetiana tried to find a family for the dog, but in the end decided to keep Nicole herself.

The canine "train attendant" also has her own social network accounts, with photos of her with passengers. The dog quickly makes new friends, especially children, Tetiana says.

Currently, Nicole and Tetiana are continuing to evacuate people to safe cities.
