The "inseparable" rescue team of Kit Huffer and his canine companion Baillie, have become the conference celebrity couple everyone wants to meet in Montreal this week.

The Canadian search-and-rescue duo have been attending the UNISDR-organized Fifth Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in the Americas, which ended on Thursday with agreement over a historic Regional Action Plan.

But away from the high-level ministerial deliberations, it's Baillie who has been turning heads with a wag of her tail, in the conference corridors.

Matthew Wells went along to meet her.
