A man and his son left their dog, Missy, at 13,000 ft feet as they were hiking between Mount Bierstadt and Mount Evans in Colorado.
Missy was hiking with them when her feet became too blistered to walk. The man and his son left Missy there alone and unable to walk. Missy survived for 8 days on the mountain when another man and his wife spotted her stranded on the mountain.
She was in very poor condition, but the couple made an attempt to carry the dog the 13,000 ft back down. Any longer and Missy would not have made it.
The man that left the dog stranded on the mountain has since received all sorts of negative publicity including death threats. Missy now remains safe under the ownership of the couple that saved her.
Please show thanks to the couple by liking and sharing this post. Bless their hearts for rescuing Missy.

This is what I am thinking...I think the couple that found and rescued Missy should be the ones to keep her now. They did a wonderful thing and I can tell they all love each other already.
I don't believe the previous owner; this is why...because the couple that rescued her were able to bring her down from the mountain...so therefore the previous owner could of too; but he chose not to. I really don't believe the reasons he gave for not bringing the dog down the mountain himself; I just think he is trying to get out of being prosecuted.
I am so glad Missy is safe and on the road to recovery; animals are so precious.

For some people a dog is a possession.
I am very happy that Missy was saved. I am guessing that Missy was the typical family dog who was taken for walks occasionally on either grass or pavement. A dog needs to toughen up before going on a multi-day trek in the mountains. Should put the bloody owner in the middle of the trek without shoes to teach him what it was like! As for being a good dad and teaching his child FAIL
As for the new owner. Well done. That is a big dog, 40+Kg on his back. He is Hero materialedit on 30/4/2013 by pheonix358 because: (no reason given)
