I've carried Charlie before. Luckily, he's young and scrawny still-- about 65 lbs. But I do know how to do the fireman's carry and have lifted my share of people during training. So I know I'll be able to lift him in case of an emergency.

One thing I haven't thought about until right now is the importance of how you'd lift your dog in certain circumstances. For instance, if he's injured, what types of lifting technique would be appropriate that would not further injure him?

I love my rescue pup.
