PENDLETON, Ore. —

A Pendleton, Ore., man and his two teenage sons say they found a thirsty, famished Airedale terrier struggling to move in deep snow when they paused after a 14-mile snowmobile ride into the northeast Oregon backcountry.

The East Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/TPAkrm ) that Brian Stewart sent his sons back to camp to fetch a sled last Saturday. They loaded the dog and took him back to their camp, where he was able to eat and drink.

Then they put him in a tent and turned up the portable heater. In Stewart's words, "His feet were like ice. We got him warmed up."

The dog is now staying at a farm belonging to some friends while Stewart and his sons try to find the animal's owner.
