“She was in good spirits and doing well considering her week in the mountains. A warm bed and a hot meal will be well received.” -Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office
A dog that went missing on January 9th was found and rescued from the top of Treasure Falls in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, on January 15th. The Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office released a statement detailing the incident on their Facebook. They had apparently received several phone calls reporting a barking dog at the top of the falls, and thus began their rescue mission.
The Upper San Juan Search & Rescue and the Wolf Creek Ski Area ski patrol assisted the sheriff’s department in the search for the dog, who was found in seemingly good spirits despite spending a week in snow.
“She was in good spirits and doing well considering her week in the mountains. A warm bed and a hot meal will be well received.”
The dog had gone missing while on a backcountry ski adventure with her owner, who I’m sure is incredibly happy to hear that their dog is alive and well.
It’s always stressful when I hear about a missing dog, and a happy ending to a story like things always brings my joy. No good boy or girl deserves to go through what this girl went through, and all dogs are good dogs, but I’m glad her week long escapade ended well.
