After six weeks alone on a mountain, a 14-year-old dog has an astonishing story to tell about her survival.
Chloe had wandered away from home around 6 weeks ago with a younger dog in her neighborhood and hadn’t been seen since. Her family lives in Colorado, on the east side of Mount Bross. Chloe did not return, despite the fact that the younger dog did. Her family looked for the elderly dog for weeks but couldn’t find him. That’s when a new character enters the story.
Trinity Smith spotted a message on the 14ers mountaineering/hiking group’s Facebook page claiming that someone had heard a dog sobbing on Mount Bross. She went up the mountain to see if she could find the dog and decided to investigate. She could hear the dog barking but couldn’t find her, and she knew she wouldn’t be able to reach her and save the dog on her own.
So the next morning, Trinity and her boyfriend Sean Nichols climbed up again, this time for nearly four hours, calling for the dog. They, on the other hand, refused to give up. They finally heard a faint bark after additional climbing.
Trinity told CBS News, “I started to give up, fearing she hadn’t made it through the night.” “Then I heard that small bark, and my adrenaline surged once more.”
When they eventually got to her, they discovered a terrified and sickly Chloe.
“We got her!!!!” exclaims the group. When they found her, Trinity posted on Facebook. “Sean Nichols and I finally pulled this adorable, fearful, hungry girl down to safety after hours and hours of yelling and climbing.” For over a month, the poor infant was stranded up there. Chloe’s owners waited carefully after returning with her to see whether this was their dog, who had been missing for six weeks and had run off with another neighborhood dog. After a month of searching, they concluded that their 13-year-old child had vanished forever.”
“We finally pulled this precious baby down to safety after tales of a dog whimpering and two days of scrambling along the side of a 14er,” she continued. “This poor creature has been left on a cliff for more than a month. She used to be a 90-pound dog, but now she just weighs 26 pounds. “I’m glad she’s down from the mountain and back with her family!” Chloe is doing better, according to her owner, but she is still recovering from her tragedy.
