Floyd The Majestic 190-Pound Mastiff Ran Out Of Steam And Had To Be Rescued From A Mountain

One of the worst things that can happen on the hike to a mountain top is not being able to walk back down on your own. To avoid that from happening, it’s important to assess your strengths and abilities well. But let’s be honest here, it’s a hard thing to do if you’re a 190-pound mastiff. This is how an adorable dog named Floyd got himself into quite a predicament. Yet, despite being a big boy, Floyd is definitely a good one too, so when he became too tired on his trip to the mountain top, a team of rescuers carried him down.

Once they got cell reception, the caring passersby called 911 and Salt Lake County Search and Rescue were dispatched to help them get off the mountain before it got too cold.

This is what happened to the lovely pup, Floyd, whose feet got cut up from walking for a long period of time and exhaustion got the better of him. The 3-year-old pup was left unable to walk any further and was in need of assistance.

Luckily, the rescue team was available to lend him a hand, or as many as he needed. The group of 10 men arrived, packaged the dog in a litter and carried him down.

While the dog’s weight is similar to an average person’s, his rescue operation was treated just like a human’s.
