They did what they could to get her home!
As three hikers made their way through a secluded section of Australia’s Mt. Glorious National Park, they heard a splashing sound from a creek bed up ahead. They approached carefully and quietly, expecting to see a kangaroo or a platypus, but were “stunned” when they saw a chubby dog struggling to free herself from the water instead.
The hikers created a noose from rope and a long stick to pull the dog from the freezing water. The well-fed, spayed female dog must have fallen into a deeper part of the creek and “exhausted” herself trying to climb out.
The dog tried to escape from her rescuers by scampering up the creek bed. The trio of hikers surrounded her, afraid to lose sight of her in the unforgiving terrain.
They began to devise a plan to extricate her from the secluded forest and back to safety.
Over time the dog they dubbed Miss Piggy came to trust the hikers and even lay her head on the woman’s leg. They created a harness out of climbing ropes, but Miss Piggy was too “exhausted” and “frightened” to climb over the rough terrain of steep banks and rocks.
They determined that they needed to create some type of carrying device if they were to get Miss Piggy to safety.
45 minutes later, they were back at the car where Miss Piggy began to transform into a new dog. By the time they had reached home she was wagging her tail and smiling from ear to ear.
What a wonderful ending to that story! Thank you all for helping in this p.o.o.r dog’s rescue! Happy he got to rejoin his family safely! Bless all of you! 💖💕
