In the midst of heartbreaking news such as throwing pups from the roof, burning them alive, we have good news. The pooch that went missing since last 24 days was recently rescued by three hikers in Mt. Glorious National Park in the southeast of Queensland. It took them about two-and-a-half hour to accomplish the mission. The dog was stuck in a waterhole. The hikers named Jessica Paton, her husband, Luke McMillan and father Mr. Graham. The trio planned to trek to a waterfall, when they realized a little movement at the forefront.

Paton added saying, “As we walked along the creek bed, we noticed a disturbance in one of the deep pools ahead. Thinking it might be a roo or a platypus, we approached quietly, only to see this forlorn little face looking back. It was honestly the saddest sight.” She continued saying, “We approached cautiously, not knowing whether this was a domesticated or wild dog”.

After a little struggle, the hikers rescued the pooch and as soon as Paton had reception on her phone, she didn’t waste a moment and uploaded the dog’s picture on lost pet pages on Facebook. Thanks to social media, the owner quickly responded to the post. He mentioned that it was his dog, which had gone missing for a month now.

The owner, Jeremy told that it wasn’t the first time that his dog had gone missing. Earlier, he left a gate open and the pooch went missing for around 18 days. Kudos to the hikers who went ahead and saved the dog that was struggling for long. We wish there are more people like Jessica, Luke and Graham who don’t shy away from helping animals in distress.
