Andi Davis was enjoying a hike along the Phoenix Mountain Reserves when she found an injured pit bull in the rocks with what looked like broken legs. At first, she didn’t know what to do, but not long after, she knew she had to do something. She gave the dog water and began the trek out of the reserves with the 50-pound-dog in her arms.
When they reached the bottom of the mountain, her husband and daughter rushed her to the humane society where their staff was stunned by his condition. The dog didn’t have broken legs – he had been shot in the neck and the bullet was still in there.
The pit bull, now named Elijah, is now a happy, healthy dog enjoying his second chance. What a story! We appreciate Andi for taking the initiative and saving Elijah’s life.
