About 13,500 feet above the ground, among the snow-capped peaks of Mount
Bierstadt in Colorado, Scott Washburn and his wife, Amanda, found an
abandoned, dying German shepherd dog.

Washburn and his wife this past Saturday, Aug. 11, were on a leisurely
hike up Mount Bierstadt in Clear Creek County, a 14,000-foot peak near
Denver that is categorized as a "14er" because, as Washburn said, "the
peak is over 14,000 feet high and considered a Class 3, meaning it is
not the most difficult - but it's too difficult for a dog to be on it or
an inexperienced person.

"We were hiking to this ridge and we got off course and I was a little
ahead of my wife," he said. "She called out to me and said, 'Hey I found
a dog,' and figured I misheard her 'cause there was no way a dog was
where we were."

  • The owner of this dog needs to be taken up to the mountian and have his legs broke. Lets see how this bitch likes being left to die.

  • Awesome job, my hat is off to all that came to the shepherds aid. As for the dogs owner, sorry dude, but you thought she was dead so live with it. Animals are God's creation too and it is mans responsibility to keep and care for Gods creations. That does not mean to abandon it. If I had been in that situation, I too would have left her until the next day when I came back for her, whether it was raining, snowing, hailing,or whatever. She followed you up the mountain trusting you to bring her back More..

  • Dog owner should never have brought the dog on a hike. the minute the dog started cutting his paws, he should have returned. If he had to leave the dog, he should have left food and water and returned after the storm. I would never leave my dog alone like that.

  • So he's hiking with a group of young people and no one can help carry the dog? Take turns in teams of 2 or 3.
