Saint Bernard Dogs is one profound example of loyal and helpful mountain rescue dogs. Although their size is quite big, they have been offering services to a lot of people in the Italian and Swiss Alps mountains.
They also provide massive support for those people and staff who needs to get help in the hills whenever there is an emergency required. Unfortunately, one of St. Bernard’s mountain Rescue dogs in Cumbria, United Kingdom have fallen out of consciousness.
Daisy (a St. Bernard weighing 55kg) passed out as while being walked down in Scafell Pike (England’s Highest Mountain). The dog has shown some signs like having pain in the legs and stopping to move before the scenario happens.
Rescuers immediately went through the area where the dog has fallen, and it took sixteen members of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team to earn the dog’s trust by using treats. As the vet’s advice, they needed to administer a pain killer to the dog and so, giving some treats would be the best way to start the rescue operation.
All in all, the rescuers took five hours to take Daisy down from the mountain. The team had to carry her using a stretcher and go through a lot of obstacles, including a waterfall. According to the rescuers, it was such a challenging experience as they needed some techniques to convince Daisy to move.
They also claimed that the dog’s cooperation is one of the things that they wanted to pursue to get the operation started. Luckily, the treats worked out for Daisy. After all, it’s an amazing thing to rescue a dog. Because every life matters to the team.
Later that day, after Daisy went on an overnight rest, everything went back to normal. The team mentioned that the dog was feeling more energy and upbeat again. The team has never been more satisfied and happy, seeing that Daisy is safe and well.
