Big dog named Floyd rescued on stretcher after getting tired during hike
A big dog named Floyd had to be rescued on a stretcher after he got tired during a hike up a mountain.
The 190-pound mastiff was walking up the Grandeur Peak trail in Utah with his human when he simply decided that he could go no further.
Concerned hikers phoned emergency services and told them that the dog and his owner had been stuck on the mountain for hours.
So, the Salt Lake County Search and Rescue team were deployed to go and rescue the big boy - and, oh, rescue him they did.
"Salt Lake County Search and Rescue members went into action and headed up the trail to make sure Floyd could get off the mountain with his human before it got too cold," they said in a post on Facebook.
"Floyd was packaged in a litter and carried down the mountain. Floyd was a good boy and was happy to be assisted."
The team carried down Floyd down the mountain in a stretcher - a feat that took them until 10.30pm that night.
"Hopefully, Floyd will be up and hiking again soon!" they added.
Don't encourage him, guys. C'mon.
The Search and Rescue Department's post has since garnered almost 5,000 likes online.
Much of the comments applaud the team's efforts, while many praise Floyd for his calm demeanour as he travels down the mountain in style.
A video depicting just a snippet of the operation was also shared online.
It's excellent. You can watch it below.
