Hiker Was Shocked To Notice A Pair Of Sorrowful ‘Amber Eyes’ Staring At Him From A Crevice

Hiker Was Shocked To Notice A Pair Of Sorrowful ‘Amber Eyes’ Staring At Him From A Crevice

While a man was hiking a narrow, slick pathway on Lookout Mountain, in Phoenix, Arizona, he couldn’t imagine the surprise that he was about to encounter.

He was concentrated on his hike until he noticed a pair of amber eyes twinkling in a crevice in the side of the mountain.

The man was stunned when he realized that the sorrowful, piercing eyes belonged to a frightened and exhausted dog.

Her fur was the color of dirt, and it completely blended in with the environment. If the pup didn’t have such striking eyes, the hiker would have walked past her without noticing her. 

The doggo had no strength left in her malnourished body, and she was close to the point of giving up on herself. 

Rescuing The Exhausted Pup 

When the dog saw the hiker approaching her, she lifted her head and looked at him. Her heart began glimmering with hope that she could be saved after all.

After the man comforted the pup, he reached out to the Arizona Humane Society (AHS), asking them to help the doggo. 

The AHS’s emergency animal medical technicians, Ruthie Jesus and Tracey Miiller, immediately headed to the scene.

The giant-hearted hiker stayed with the doggo, later named Bright Eyes, for almost two hours until the rescuers arrived at the location.

“… She blends in so much, the complainant told us that he wanted to call her Bright Eyes because when he hiked past her, that was literally the only thing he saw was her amber bright eyes staring back at him,” Jesus said in a video taken by the AHS after the rescue.

Although the doggo still felt scared, she let the good humans take care of her.

The medical technicians examined Bright Eyes. Apart from being severely dehydrated, the doggo had cuts on her paws and a wound on her rear end.

The rescue team could tell that she was a real sweetheart. Bright Eyes let them caress her head. 

However, due to her fear, the doggo froze in the den, and the rescue team had to pull her out.

Since Bright Eyes was too exhausted to walk, her rescuers took turns carrying her down the mountain.

The lovely pup enjoyed being in their arms. She felt safe and relaxed. 

The hopelessness and sorrow disappeared from her eyes. They were now filled with gratitude toward the kind humans who rushed to her aid. 

The pup knew that she was finally getting the help that she needed.

The Sweet Dog Gets The Help She Needed

Nobody knows how Bright Eyes found herself on the mountain.

Her rescuers are thrilled because she was found in time.

“We were so elated to be able to get her. She was just so dehydrated. I think she’d probably been up there several days and that was probably her last day, and this Good Samaritan really just saved her life,” Jesus added.

Bright Eyes was taken to a hospital where she received medicine, fluids, and antibiotics. She was also given treatment for her stomach issues.

The pooch was estimated to be two years old.

As soon as she makes a full recovery, the beautiful Arizona girl will start looking for her forever home.

The wonderful pup hopes to find loving parents and start a brand-new life with them.

Thank you to both the kind-hearted Good Samaritan and the amazing animal medical technicians, Miiller and Jesus, for saving the life of this sweet girl.
