Ford Canyon Abandoned Pup

Below are photos of the small black pup I found on Thanksgiving 2001. He'd apparently been abandoned and was hiding in a cave just off the Ford Canyon Trail in White Tanks Regional Park. After returning three more times with food and water,(the red bowl in the photos was what I took up to give him water the first time.When I returned the next time he'd hauled it back into the cave.) The second trip I took a water bowl that was too heavy for him to spill or haul into the cave. My third trip I met a park maintenance worker who, with a Park Cop, finally went in and rescued him.
