Un perro esperó durante 19 días en el lugar donde su ama murió en un accidente

Un perro llamado Bentley pasó 19 días en el lugar del accidente que mató a su propietaria, Jennifer Orr. La tragedia ocurrió el 7 de agosto, cuando Jennifer y su hija Samantha circulaban por una carretera del estado de Colorado, en EE.UU.

«Estábamos conduciendo y hablando y lo siguiente que supimos fue que estábamos cayendo de la carretera», comentó a los medios Samantha, que sobrevivió al accidente.

Tras salir del hospital, Samantha empezó a buscar al perro, que estaba en el coche en el momento del accidente. Aunque no estaba segura de que el animal hubiera sobrevivido, la joven, de 21 años, inició una operación de búsqueda y creó una comunidad en Facebook para hallarlo.

Finalmente la joven encontró a Bentley 19 días después no lejos del lugar del accidente. Al principio el perro estaba muy asustado, pero luego la reconoció y los dos se reunieron. Según Samantha, el perro no había sufrido heridas graves, y solamente presentaba síntomas de malnutrición y deshidratación.

BENTLEY HAS BEEN RESCUED!This guy has been what can only be compared to a mountain goat for the past 19 days. After the fatal accident where I lost my mom, Bentley was last seen running down hill from the accident. For the past 3 days he has been spotted far far above the accident site, laying amongst the rocks along the ridge of the mountain. Peering down at the Jeep wreckage, patiently waiting for his family to return. This morning, I left Pueblo, CO at 4:45am and drove the accident site in Buena Vista, CO. Along with a team, we spent hours hiking to the top of said mountain. I have never, and I mean never, done such dangerous and rewarding activity in my entire life. We were able to spot Bentley early in the day, a few hours in, I came within 30-40 feet of him. He wouldn’t come to me, but seemed interested. Eventually his fear got the best of him and he made his way to the ridge (top). I slowly but surely followed him, upon reaching the summit, I could see him watching me. I got close to him, laid down, unpacked some items to eat and a new toy I’d purchased from him. He never moved an inch for over 15 minutes. Eventually I decided to give him some space, back off for a few minutes, and that got his attention. When I came back, him and I slowly altered walking few steps towards each other until finally I was able to convince him to come into my arms. And from then it was nothing but tears and celebration! Bentley is okay, he’s a little malnourished and dehydrated. But otherwise no noticeable injuries. Thank you to everyone who played a role in bringing this sweet boy home. I know the past 19 days, God and my beautiful momma have been keeping an eye on him. GOD IS SO GOOD! ❤️
