While scrolling through Facebook, Trinity Smith and Sean Nichols stumbled across a heartbreaking post.

If you're the proud companion of an animal, this story will surely pull at your heartstrings. As a pet owner, you know that animals aren't just a possession, they're a part of your family. They bring a certain something to your life that can't be found anyplace else. If your beloved fur baby were to get lost, you would do absolutely anything in your power to make sure that they were found. Recently, this pet owner found himself in this very scary situation. Even though he wasn't sure if he'd ever see his loved one ever again, he didn't give up hope. Eventually, he got some wonderful news!

They were on a local Facebook page for enthusiasts of 14ers, a group of people that are fans of mountain peaks that exceed 14,000 feet, when they saw a post asking for the type of help that they could provide. They knew they had to do something.

The post had stated that someone had heard a dog crying on top of Mt. Bross.

Trinity decided to take the task of finding the scared pup in her own hands. On Thursday, she set out on her mission.

Although she heard the dog's cries, she couldn't help her at the time.

Trinity knew that she couldn't get the dog by herself. It was starting to get dark, and the climb would've been too dangerous for her to make alone.

Trinity knew it was in her best interest to recruit some help.

On Friday morning, Trinity and Sean headed back up the mountain. They spent hours calling for the lost dog.

Eventually, the dog stopped responding to their calls.

Sean had continued climbing in order to try to hear for the dog. Finally, the dog let out a small bark.

After hours of searching, Sean got to the pup.

He was able to get to the large rock she was on and slide down the slopes with her on his lap. What a relief that must have been!

The dog, whose name is Chloe, had been missing for six long weeks.

When Trinity and Sean got back to town, they went to a local pet store to get the hungry pup some much needed food. Chloe's owner had heard the fantastic news and immediately rushed to the store to meet up with the brave people who rescued their dog.

Chloe's owner, Larry Osborne, expressed how grateful he was for the rescuers.

As soon as he said his goodbyes to Trinity and Sean, he took Chloe to the vet. In the time she was gone, she went from 85 pounds to 26 pounds, and was in desperate need of veterinary attention.

Larry Osborne

Larry is extremely happy to have his best friend back home.

He said that she's recovering nicely, but still has a ways to go. This story just goes to show that even though social media causes a lot of drama, it does a lot of good, as well!
