Like humans, animals have feelings too. When they’re lost, and they cannot see their fur parent, they also get afraid and anxious.
The Goetelen family went for a hike with their two dogs, a 3-year-old German Shepherd named Harley and an 8-year-old Golden Retriever named Naoise, in the Wicklow mountains one Saturday morning.
Unfortunately, the two dogs went missing. While they found Harley in a parking lot the day after, Naoise was still nowhere to be found.
The family was already getting anxious because the Wicklow Mountains comprise a vast anticline with granite exposed at the center, and slates and sandstones surrounding it. To make it even more dangerous, during the winter they’re covered with ice.
A Couple Of Doctors
One day, two doctors named Jean-Francois Bonnet and Ciara Nolan were hiking on the same mountain when they saw something by a rock.
They Found Naoise
Jean and Ciara were about to reach the peak of the mountain when they saw the weak and cold folder retriever who wasn’t able to walk or bark anymore.
The hiking doctors wrapped Naoise with clothes, used their medicinal skills to keep her safe, and gave her a snack before using a scarf to hang Naoise to Jean’s backpack.
Jean and Ciara continued their journey while carrying Naoise for four to five hours down the mountain.
The couple brought Naoise to their house, gave her food, and kept her warm before contacting the local animal rescue group, which tracked down the Goetelen family to bring the good news.
Watch how Jean and Ciara became Naoise’s heroes in the video below.
