Hiker’s Loyal Dog Rejects To Leave Her Side After She’s Wounded in 300-Foot Fall

The dog’s name is Indy, like the fictional character Indiana Jones. Brittany Fintel says that without the support of her traumatized dog, she may have gone into shock during a near-death experience in Washington state.

Fintel claimed “Indy” wanted to trek up the snow as they were on a hike to the summit of Mount St. Helens. Indiana was Fintel’s German shepherd and was named after Indiana Jones.



The 32-year-old U.S. Navy veteran stumbled on ice while hiking on the volcano and tumbled more than 300 feet down a rocky slope.

The moment I fell, I thought it was my last,” Fintel told KGW. That was it for me, really.

Indy, a seven-year-old service dog with PTSD training, lowered himself to check on her and make sure she was okay by licking her face.

About 15 minutes later, a group of six individuals, including a narrator and a rescuer from different mountains, came to her aid.

For about five hours before she was airlifted off the hill by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, Fintel said all six remained with her and talked to her and Indy.



While wearing protective eyewear, Indy watched as his injured owner was taken away on a helicopter. Later, he was sent to the hospital for treatment.

Because of the accident, Indy has not been able to leave Fintel’s hospital bedside as she heals from her injuries, which include fractures to her pelvis and spine as well as a concussion.

Fintel said that Indy has been incredible during the whole ordeal, and that without her faithful pal, Indy likely would have gone into shock.

“It was really nothing short of a miracle,” she proclaimed.
