Hiking is a fun activity where we get to see wild animals in their natural habitat. However, there are times when hikers get to experience unexpected things. For one family, it was when they came across a dog that was fighting for her life to stay alive.
Jessica Paton was hiking with her husband and her father in Mount Glorius in Queensland when they came across something in a waterhole. Jessica and her family thought that it was a kangaroo or a platypus moving in the waterhole. However, they were surprised to find a dog struggling to get out of the waterhole
The dog appeared very cold and weak, which was evident that she’s been treading water for a long time. Jessica and her family decided to pull the dog out of the water. The dog just looked so sad and dejected that she wandered off in the opposite direction.
Jessica and her family decided to follow the dog and saw where she lived. When Jessica worked up the courage to reach out and pat the dog’s head, the dog licked Jessica’s hand suggesting that she was domesticated. Jessica and her family decided to bring the dog back to civilization.
Jessica, her husband, and her dad were able to create a makeshift rig to carry the dog out of the mountain. It was challenging but they were determined to help the dog. All in all, it took Jessica and her family almost three hours to rescue the dog. Eventually, they were able to find the dog’s owner through social media.
After only 30 minutes of posting the photo of the dog, a man named Jeremy claimed the dog and stated that the dog had been missing for a month. Jeremy had always been looking for his dog every night since the dog went missing. It turned out that the dog’s name is Elly-Bobby and she escaped the yard when the gate to his home was left open.
When Elly-Bobby was reunited with Jeremy, both she and Jeremy were so excited to see each other again. Thanks to Jessica and her family, Elly-Bobby was rescued and she was reunited with her family. Here’s a heartwarming video featuring Elly-Bobby’s story and how she was reunited with her family..
