Stuck in the Canadian wilderness for two days after being injured following a fall and with no phone or supplies, dog walker Annette Poitras must have feared the worst. If she did, she needn’t have, for the 56 year old managed to survive two days in thick bush and swamps in a remote part of British Columbia thanks to her three dogs: Chloe the border collie, Roxy the boxer, and Bubba a pug-beagle mix. For the three pooches helped take care of Mrs Poitras just long enough for the Coquitlam search and rescue team to find her in an area described by the Mounties as “well outside the normal trail system”. According to her husband Mr Poitras, the dogs did not leave her side throughout the ordeal. And it was very much a team effort: “One of them was cuddling [her] and one of them was on guard and the other one was looking for food,” he said. What’s more it was largely thanks to the dogs that the 100 strong rescue team finally tracked down the missing walker, thanks to their loud barking. The rescue team said she was “in good condition” and her husband revealed that she is looking forward to “quiet, peace, walking dogs, visiting family”. Give the dogs a bone or three.
