Estrada approached the dog and gave him a kiss. He knows Sage very well, often playing with his two rescue dogs, a pit bull named Koelsch and a dachshund named Barnabus. She was very weak after being alone in the woods for so long, so he took her on his shoulders and carried the dog on the hill. Estrada’s wife then contacted the owners of Sage, who immediately took her to the vet. After a little rest, Sage became herself again.
The whole neighborhood was happy to hear about his safe return. A neighbor has cooked him a steak, while a welcome party will be organized at a local bar where funds will be raised for the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter.
