I read this story last night, and got a lump in my throat over reading it...Bless this Angel, and so glad that Elijah has a forever home. Shame that justice can't find the POS who did this tho, and leave him/her on the side of the mountain. Thanks, Cher for this.

What an incredible story ! It isn't easy carrying a 40 pound dog down a mountainside, let alone the chance of finding a dog shot on a mountainside. Great good life and fortune to Andi Davis, her family and Elijah ! Eternal nightmares to the one who committed this sickening crime.

I'm so glad that this wonderful family adopted him! The love the little girl has for her dog is really moving.

This was not a "chance" meeting. This was how it was supposed to be.

What a beautiful dog and such a wonderful woman for bringing him to get help. I cannot believe how heartless people are and especially in shooting pitbulls.
