A mountain rescue team has been called up to Britain’s highest mountain to save a dog that refused to go any further.
Maggie, a 35kg Turkish Akbash dog, was unable to continue the descent from Ben Nevis with her owners because her paws were in pain.
The three women walking with the dog had tried carrying her down the 4,413ft mountain but were forced to admit defeat around the halfway mark.
Lochaber Mountain Rescue came to the dog’s rescue on Saturday night, despite already facing multiple callouts for other emergencies.
As the old saw goes, if it had been a kid it would have had to do it itself. Character building you know.
