Lucky going to her new home with John

Lucky (aka Missy), the dog who was rescued off of Mount Bierstadt by a group of hikers, has been released from the Clear Creek County animal shelter and went home with John Steed, one of the rescuers who saved her life.

Lucky was left on the side of the mountain by her owner and rescued 8 days later when she was carried down the mountain by a group of concerned Colorado hikers who read about her plight when two hikers, Scott Washburn and his wife Amanda, found her and posted information on the 14ers.com, a forum for hikers.

Missy is a 14er for life

At her new home, she has the company of John's two other dogs and is enjoying life with her new family.
