This is the heartwarming moment a hiking club in Mexico trekked up to the highest peak in the country to rescue a stray dog who spent nearly a month stranded atop the volcano in the southern state of Veracruz braving the cold weather.
Canelo, a mixed breed hound, had been stuck in Pico de Orizaba since October after he tagged along with a group of hikers through the trail as he was being fed food, according to Mexican newspaper Milenio.
Instead of following the mountain climbers back down, Canelo stood behind as he somehow managed to pull through the snow and freezing temperatures.
The pooch made headlines when he was pictured on social media recently by hikers who were unsuccessful in their attempts to get him to leave the mountain.
Pedro Ruiz Guerrero drove his sport utility vehicle through parts of Pico de Orizaba on October 18 but had no luck before he and Fatima del Angel, who works with an animal rescue shelter, reached out to Layo Aguilar, another experienced hiker, for assistance.
Aguilar along with 30 other climbers, including a group he instructs at a local school, reached the top of volcano on Sunday and encountered Canelo, who quickly warmed up to his new friends as they fed him.
