Man And Dogs Rescued From Desert

April Livingston | August 3rd, 2019

For a man named Gregory Randolph, things were looking very dire. The man was near death. He had been hiking for four days and the 73 year old man was approximately 14 miles away from his vehicle. He was dehydrated and sunburnt and was losing hope. Just as things were looking terrible, a man on a bicycle, named Tomas Quinones found him. Gregory and his two dogs had set off on the adventure together and things were not going well. They had been exploring a remote area of the Oregon desert together and were stranded out there all alone for days.

Tomas was out on an adventure of his own: he had been biking through the “Oregon Outback” in the south central portion of the state. He was biking when he thought he saw a cow and a few dogs in the distance. When he got closer, he realized it was a man and his dogs. It was clear from the moment Tomas saw the man that he was in serious danger. He was conscious but was not responding, and his dogs also appeared to be in dire condition. So, he pressed the SOS button on his GPS and stayed with the man until help arrived. While he was waiting, one of the man’s dogs, a Shih Tzu emerged from the brush where it had been hiding. He fed the dog peanut butter and when emergency personnel arrived they brought the dog to an animal hospital for help.

But Tomas noticed a set of footprints, which he pointed out to the authorities. A few days later, they found Gregory’s Jeep stuck off the road and his second dog Buddy was waiting by the vehicle. They believe the dog survived by drinking water from the mud puddles around the car. Gregory and his dogs both received much needed medical care and are doing well now—and have finally been reunited after their ordeal.
