A woman named Andi Davis was on one of her hiking trips, alongside the isolated stony mountains in Phoenix, Arizona, when she found a 2-year-old Pit Bull lying half-dead on a rock. She was shocked to see he had many bullet wounds, and was bleeding profusely.
Andi gave him some water, but she knew he was barely holding on to life. So, she took him in her arms, and made a race down the mountains. For a full hour, she frantically carried the 47-pound dog, praying that he holds on to life.
Andi took the Pit Bull to Arizona Humane Society for immediate care. The vets treated an open wound in the dog’s abdomen, and pulled out bullet fragments from his neck and spinal cord. Andi stood by his side, motivating him to fight back and survive.
Thanks to Andi’s heroic act, the Pit Bull finally pulled though! Andi called him Elijah, and decided to take him home with her. Elijah was quick to recover as he was showered with love and care in his new home.
Today, Elijah is best friends with Jessi, Andi’s 10-year-old daughter, and the three other canines in the family. Thank you Andi, for not giving up. What a heartfelt journey of survival!
