What a wonderful story. Seeing that some people are prepared to go to such efforts to save another creature is truly heart warming.

Obviously KC doesn't like to be tied up outside. Well done Bristol Bay crew!
Thank you sweetie.

Dogs should NEVER be tied up outside, or unchipped, without tags, etc.

Lucky pupper!

Very nice rescue story. KC is one lucky dog - hence the name the rescuers gave him. Why was this dog tied up outside in the cold one must wonder though?

Wonderful that the old dog got rescued, but he can hardly be a "beloved" pet if he's tied outside in the kind of cold they were experiencing. There's more to this story, methinks, and maybe he shouldn't have been reunited with that stupid an owner.

What a wonderful story, poor dog, I get so emotional when I read these things. Why do their owners tie them outside in this cold weather is beyond me.

Glad the dog was found. Not sure if he should have been sent home to people who tie him outside. That angers me actually.
