Bodhee was rescued off a cliff side and expected to recover

An Alaskan Malamute was rescued by a group of Good Samaritans and rescue workers after he took a dangerous tumble down a cliff on Eagle Creek Trail in Oregon.

The Malamute named Bohdee, was hiking with his owner, Amanda Reese, when he got too close to the edge, and the ledge gave out. He fell about 200 feet and at first Amanda thought the worst.

Cliff trail where Bodhee slipped"He wasn't crying, he wasn't moving, he was alive, but we didn't know how long he was going to be alive," said Amanda.

Amanda luckily found some hikers on the trail that wanted to help her and Bohdee. They lowered themselves down to the hurt dog. One of the Good Samaritans happened to have a hammock, so they made it into a makeshift sling. They used it to carry the 100-pound dog a half-mile down the trail when they met up with Search and Rescue workers two hours later.

Search and Rescue took over from there. It took an additional five hours to pull the dog back up the cliff-side safely.

"I couldn't have gone on and enjoyed myself or felt good about my time there if I didn't help," said Josiah Martens, one of the Good Samaritans who helped Reese. "I have a soft spot for dogs."

Once rescuers got him back up on the ridge, Bohdee was rushed to Southeast Animal Hospital where he had a five hour emergency surgery. "He's been really strong," Amanda said of Bohdee. "It's amazing he survived and he weathered his injuries pretty well."

Bohdee must stay in the hospital until he can walk, but doctors are hopeful he will make a full recovery.
