When a missing puppy named Puppy was found after 40 hours, it was a poignant moment for the rescuers and the family. A search and rescue dog named Tino, who was making his maiden voyage, was also responsible.

While riding in McLeary, Washington, the 150-pound pup disappeared from the Great Pyrenees. His owner, Karen James, was by his side. His owners turned to Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue for help after two days of anxious searching.

To find Puppy, the nonprofit rescue operation was awarded Tino, a search and rescue dog. Less than a mile from Tino’s home, Gru drowned in a muddy ravine after hastily following him. Through the mud, only his head was visible.

The puppy had to be safely removed by three rescuers. “Tino did an amazing job today finding that old dog stuck in the mud,” Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue wrote on Facebook.

He might have been immobilized in the frozen mud for hours if his hind foot had failed him at first. The Puppy family probably wouldn’t have found it if it hadn’t been for the help of a search dog because the forests stretch for miles.

When a puppy arrived at his family’s home, they were happy to see him. Then he was put in a cart. For Fox 13, James said, “He couldn’t get out of the mud.” Since it was far enough off the track, we were going to miss it.

And you know there are acres and acres of wilderness to hunt.” The first “discovery walk” of Tino’s career came after 16 months of training, according to Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue. It sure was a huge success!
