Valiant Pakistani ascends steep mountain to rescue stranded dog in Abbottabad
The Pakistani man, who goes by the name of Rizwan, got to know of a dog, believed to be lying somewhere in the mountains through a Facebook group but instead of scrolling over, like many others, he embarked on a tough journey to rescue the dog.
Nadia Naviwala, a renowned author and social media influencer detailed in her tweets that the Rizwan took a jeep, a veterinary doctor and other essentials of first aid to the mountain village to rescue the dog with broken limbs.

The volunteers dubbed 'angels' by the educationist, steered their 4x4 jeep through muddy terrain. The twist came when they reached at a dead end, there was no road which could lead them to the dog. This didn't stop them and they walked for two hours and were finally able to reach the area, where the dog was helplessly waiting for nothing other than his death.

However, due to the paucity of facilities at Abbotabad, the dog was brought to Islamabad to treat broken bags.
Update: we're bringing the dog to Islamabad tomorrow. Abbottabad doesn't have the facilities to treat his broken bones. The hero of this story is @RizwanIdrisK. Thanks for writing it @waqas_x on @dailypakistangl https://t.co/Y40HdFw5FA
