Thanks to the Salt Lake County Sheriff's office, help arrived on time for the mastiff and his owner who were stuck at the top of the Grandeur Peak Trail.
Sgt. Melody Gray of the Unified Police Department, which worked with the sheriff's rescue team, later said:
The team is completely volunteer. They had no hesitation whatsoever, even when they heard it was a dog.
The rescue team strapped Floyd to a stretcher and then descended towards the base. The team also posted a video of the dog being taken down the hill.
After help arrived, it was amazing to see how comfortably Floyd let the officials rescue him and take him back to safety. Just like he planned the darn thing to happen! With doggos, you never know.
