Faithful even after the end.

A ‘hero’ dog has been found next to the body of his elderly owner who went missing while hiking in the US two months ago.

A US hiker who went missing in August was found dead last month on a rugged peak in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado, — but his jack russell terrier miraculously survived, and stayed perched next to his deceased owner’s body for months.

Rich Moore, 71, of Pagosa Spring, Colorado, had been hiking up the 12,500-foot mountain on August 19, but never returned home, according to Fox News.

Search-and-rescue crews dropped in by helicopter and combed through the forests just below the peak, then moved toward the trailhead, where they found his car, the outlet reported.

But they couldn’t find the man — even though they spent more than 2,000 hours searching for him, reports said.

That was until about two weeks ago, on October 30, when a hunter stumbled across Mr Moore’s corpse more than two miles east of the summit — along with his jack russell terrier, Finny, the New York Postreports.

Somehow, Finny had survived for more than two months in the wilderness — and didn’t leave his owner’s side......

Chihuahua causes early morning crash in Tulsa, driver and dog expected to fully recover
According to the driver, the Chihuahua jumped into his lap while he was driving which caused him to impact a nearby power pole.

When officers arrived on the scene, the driver was complaining of chest pain and the Chihuahua was found unresponsive on the floorboard of the car.

Paramedics began treating a laceration found on the Chihuahua when the dog regained consciousness.

The driver and the Chihuahua were taken to the hospital where both are expected to make a full recovery.

Dog runs 4 miles to find help after owner drives over Oregon cliff, spends night trapped in ravine
... Brandon Garrett’s dog arrived at a Baker County campsite around 9:30 a.m. Monday to alert his anxious family to the trouble, the county sheriff said.

They immediately launched a search party, finding his truck lying on its side at the edge of a creek several hundred feet off a roadside cliff.

Another one of Garrett’s four dogs was standing watch over the truck, officials said.
