Aniki is one tough and lucky Rottweiler as he managed to spend 29 days lost in the woods of Mount Seymour before being rescued by strangers.

The four-year-old dog was found on Saturday by a female hiker who saw him on her way to Brockton Point on the mountain. She saw the dog before telling a worker who was on the mountain. She figured that since the dog was alone in that manner that it must have been the missing dog Aniki.

Rescue coordinator Tim Jones stated “People actually found the dog and raised the alert. It was a textbook case of a dog rescue where the public was engaged and they found the dog.”

Aniki was hit by a car in the past and had to go through $11,000 surgery for a metal pin in his left hip. He was noticably tired towards the end of the rescue.
