In Mexico, one hero Labrador refused to leave a boy who was lost in the mountains until rescuers arrived.



Fourteen-year-old Juan Heriberto Trevino was attending a summer camp in Mexico’s Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range last week when he got lost and got separated from his group. The poor boy slipped and fell down a ravine while he was searching for firewood. The teenager got injured and disoriented.

Luckily, a yellow Labrador named Max, whom the boy met for a short time at camp, followed him and stayed by his side. Juan was unable to find his way back to the camp yet Max chose to remain by his side. The lost boys then took shelter under a tree.

The Labrador’s presence sure made a difference for Juan. The temperature in the mountains can get really chilly during the night but Max was there to keep him warm.

“I grabbed [Max] and put him on my legs to not be so cold and hugged the dog,” the teenager told Noticieros Televisa.

The next day, as Juan struggled to find his way back to the camp, the Labrador saved him once again by finding a puddle puddle of water – from which they both were able to drink and quench their thirst.

Thanks to Max, Juan survived long enough until a search party found them and airlifted them to safety.

“In that part of the mountain it is very easy to get lost. In addition, it’s very cold at night, as it is very high,” Martin Castillo, deputy director of the local police, told reporters. “The child was lucky to find the dog.”

Juan’s family is grateful to the Labrador and initially wanted to adopt him. But, as it turns out, Max has a family who live in the area.

Thanks for saving Juan’s life, Max. The mountainous area sure needs a hero like you nearby.
