If ever somebody will doubt how strong the bond is between dogs and their human parents, show them the video in this story. This video, along with thousands of others out there, are very strong examples showing how much we love our pups and how much we dread the thought of losing them.
In this viral story, the human mom in the video could barely contain herself. She was crying because of fear. It’s the fear caused by the idea that her dog is gone and lost forever. So when she got the chance to hug her dog again, she just couldn’t contain her emotions.
This video was taken on Mount Timpanogos in Utah. The woman was with her dog when her pup accidentally fell 40 feet down a moat under a snow bridge. There was an avalanche recently that formed it, and for this lady, she thought that this place was about to become her dog’s final resting place.
Thanks to the courage and quick action of the Search and Rescue Team from the Utah County Sheriff’s Department, this won’t be the case. The team dug a hole through the snow to form a tunnel towards the dog. After five hours of endless digging, one of the team members was lowered down the tunnel.
The team member successfully rescued the dog, and the pup’s human mom couldn’t believe her eyes. She was so relieved that she started crying hysterically. One of the team members around decided to record the emotional reunion for everyone to see.
The poor pup also cried some sighs as he probably was so afraid of the fall and being alone and stuck for five hours. The woman and her friend thanked every member of the Search and Rescue team who helped them recover their pup and even gave them well-deserved hugs.
