When she was hiking along an isolated mountain trail in Phoenix, Arizona, Ani Davis came across an injured dog collapsed against a rock.
She noticed that the pit bull was riddled with bullets.
Davis was unsure of what to do, but then the dog raised his head to look at her water bottle.
So without delay, Davis rushed over to him to give him a drink and she lifted his 47 lbs. body in her arms and carried him back down the mountain.
It took her about an hour.
She then took the dog to the humane society.
After he was operated on by the vets, the dog was named Elijah by the Davis family.
They took him in to serve as a foster family.
