The mountain rescue team is taking action in Lake District … to rescue a dog that was too tired to walk on
- Keswick Mountain Rescue was named after a man's dog refused to keep walking
- The nine-year-old terrier had become tired on the Cumbria Way in the Lake District
- Six volunteers and a tracking dog finally found the two and brought them home
A rescue team in the mountains was summoned to rescue a tired dog who refused to continue his walk.
The nine-year-old terrier would not admit the end of a & # 39; long wet day & # 39 ;.
The unnamed owner tried to carry the dog, but it turned out to be too heavy and the man was forced to call for help.
The nine-year-old terrier became & # 39; cold and shivering & # 39; found with his unnamed owner by six volunteers and a tracking dog
The couple took refuge in a wooden cabin until the team of six volunteers and a tracking dog arrived on a stretch of the Cumbria Way in the Lake District and brought them to their accommodation in Caldbeck.
Keswick Mountain Rescue, which performed the operation last Thursday, said: & With visions from Great Danes and Rottweilers and the ability to call more team members to stretch the dog, the team was happy to have a small and easily portable find a cold, shivering terrier. & # 39;
It took more than two hours for six team members and one search dog to save the man and his dog.
After two hours the nameless man and his dog were safely back from the Cumbria Way and on the way home
The exhausted terrier was carried back down the hill in armor.
A car waiting down there drove the couple back to their accommodation in Caldbeck.
The rescuers' work was praised online, while Rachel O & # 39; Brien wrote on Facebook: & # 39; This great outcome could have been so easily different if they hadn't had any help from mountain rescue.
& # 39; Cold, wet and tired can easily mean hypothermia for humans and dogs and I have a 10 kg dog, so I know how heavy it should be, even over a short distance. & # 39;
