On Monday, 68-year-old Alan Rosenfeld was hiking on Oregon’s Mount Hood with his golden retriever, Ranger, when the dog took a wrong turn and fell over the side, KATU.com reports.
Ranger tumbled about 40 feet down a steep slope and couldn’t get back up. Rosenfeld tried to rescue his 4-year-old golden, but ended up getting stuck himself. Before going down to help his pet, Rosenfeld told another hiker to call 911.
Rescue workers discovered the pair, stranded on a 45 to 50 degree slope, at around 7:45 pm.
The team used pulleys to get Rosenfeld and his dog out of the canyon and back on the trail.
Rosenfeld and Ranger were not injured and walked the three miles back to Timberline Lodge.
