Dehydrated dog blended in with the dirt — until Arizona hiker spots her ‘bright eyes’

As a hiker trekked “off the beaten path,” he observed one thing amongst the mounds of brown Arizona dirt.

A pair of “bright eyes” stared again at him on Lookout Mountain in Phoenix on April 24, Ruthie Jesus, subject operations supervisor with the Arizona Humane Society, stated in a Facebook video.

They belonged to a 2-year-old Shar-Pei combine that was hiding “in a small cutout on the side of a mountain,” the humane society stated in a May 2 information launch.

When the dog wouldn’t budge, Jesus stated the hiker referred to as the humane society.

Jesus stated she and Tracey Miller, the society’s subject operations director, took the final car from their fleet and made their technique to the pup and hiker, who waited by her facet for almost two hours.

“We found this incredible dog who incidentally is literally the same color as the dirt,” Jesus stated. “She blends in so much.”

Jesus stated the dog was “sweet” and let her pet her head.

Though the dog “absolutely did not want to come out of that den,” Jesus stated they managed to get her out.

“She was grossly dehydrated,” Jesus stated, including that the pair gave her water from their water bottles.

While she may stroll, Jesus stated the dog had cuts on her paws and a “laceration on her hind end.”

“Honestly, she was too weak,” Jesus stated. “So we did kind of a funky, crazy hold-her-like-a-baby sort of situation.”

Jesus said she and Miller took turns carrying the dog down the “teeny tiny rocky trail that was pretty slick.”Jesus said she and Miller took turns carrying the dog down the “teeny tiny rocky trail that was pretty slick.”

“She actually really just relaxed and seemed to enjoy being carried down the mountain,” Jesus stated. “She was just an absolute angel.”

After getting her to the hospital, Jesus stated the dog bought fluids, antibiotics and ache medication.

“I think she’d probably been up there several days and that was probably her last day,” Jesus stated.
