Arizona Family Rescues Pit Bull Left for Dead on Mountain Trail

Andi Davis was taking a routine hike near Phoenix, Ariz., when she spotted a 2-year-old pit bull at the top of a mountain, according to an article on the Huffington Post. Despite inititially having misgivings about the breed, Davis scooped up the dog and carried him back down the mountain, where her husband and daughter, Jessi, brought him to the Arizona Humane Society for treatment.


While there, it was discovered that the dog, now named Elijah, had been shot and was likely left for dead on the trail.

This story has a happy ending however. Davis's daughter, Jessi, felt a special connection with the dog and he's now become a member of their family.
