Skiers Rescue Dog Caught Up in Avalanche

In Colorado, two college students are being called heroes after rescuing a dog in an avalanche. A man said he was backcountry skiing in the Berthoud Pass area when his two-year-old dog, Apollo, triggered an avalanche. Two college students were nearby and quickly sprang into action, searching for the now snow buried Apollo. After 20 minutes, Apollo’s nose was spotted sticking out of the ground and the group dug out the pup, who has since made a full recovery.
