A 190 lb mastiff had to be rescued from a trail in Utah. Thank you to the rescuers!

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

All we have ever had is rescue dogs including out present 120 pound Lab / how mix. Great pup. I really dislike people who abandon pups.

With us, no matter how old or large, they are all pups.

I don't think you read the article. Just a guess.

Seams like this dog was not conditioned enough for the hike. Mastiffs can be fit; search drafting or cart pulling with mastiffs.

Dog was not abandoned - he just gave out and needed help.

I have a 2 year old English mastiff that weighs 196lbs. I would never consider taking him on a hike like that. He is not fat or lazy, gets 2 good walks a day. Mastiffs are not a high energy dog and you need to be very careful that they don’t overheat or over exert themselves like this one did. They are also not very agile and could easily get seriously hurt on a trail like that. This is all the owner’s fault. Should have known better.
