Dog rescued on Christmas Day from Utah mountains

Nala the dog went missing after she was separated from her owner during a Christmas Eve hike in the snowy mountains near Waterfall Canyon, Utah.

She spent the night of Christmas Eve alone after her owner failed to find her. When her owner eventually did find Nala she was above a waterfall – but he was unable to get to her because of steep and icy terrain.

He reported her missing to the authorities and Weber County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team were able to locate her.

The team rescued Nala and returned her to her family by the end of Christmas Day.
