A Man Saves A Blind Dog Who Had Been Missing In The Forest For A Week

A city worker in the San Lorenzo Valley, California, has become a local hero after helping a blind dog that had been lost in the woods. Dan Estrada had gone for a walk with a friend in the forest behind his house when he was off job, but he never imagined to finish rescuing a missing puppy.

The man simply wanted to go on a walk with his friend, so he packed his belongings and set off with his two dogs. They came at a river and were met with a nice surprise.

Age, a 12-year-old Labrador dog, sat on one bank of the creek, completely blind and motionless. Sage had been missing from her house for eight days, and her family had looked everywhere for her but had come up empty-handed.

Sage’s family claims that they planned to sleep normally one night, but their beloved puppy was absent the next morning. What happened to her that caused her to get confused? It’s a mystery, but the reality is that her family began searching for her, asking the help of all of her neighbors and relatives.

They even hired a professional dog tracker, plastered the neighborhood with hundreds of posters, and shared their photo on social media. Because of his health and the presence of pumas in the area, the worst was feared after several days of unsuccessful searching.

Sage’s mother, Beth Cole, told The Mercury News:

“For a week, our neighbors and other members of the community helped us in our search.”

Fortunately, Dan and his fellow hikers were able to find Sage in time, who was resting by the stream, waiting for help. When Sage heard the people close, he raised his head, which was visible to Dan, who went up to her and hugged her.

Fortunately, Dan and his fellow hikers were able to find Sage in time, who was resting by the stream, waiting for help. When Sage heard the people close, he raised his head, which was visible to Dan, who went up to her and hugged her.

“I jumped into the water and hugged her when we saw she was still alive. It was a miracle in the truest sense of the word.

Sage was well-known to the man because he lived nearby to his owners’ house and was often playing with his two dogs. Sage was tired and weak after being lost in the woods for a week, so Dan lifted her up the hill on his shoulders.
