WEBER COUNTY — Can you say awww?

Three stranded Great Pyrenees puppies were rescued from Weber County’s snowy mountains Sunday afternoon after a pair of snowmobilers came across them in the Monte Cristo area.

The Weber County Search & Rescue team and Utah State Parks staff were near the Monte Cristo trailhead Sunday, getting ready for the winter season, when they received a call that two snowmobilers were looking for help with puppies they had found in the Ant Flat area, according to a Search & Rescue Facebook post.

Search & Rescue responded with a rescue sled and assisted the snowmobilers with rescuing the puppies.

The puppies will be adopted out to homes through Hope’s Rescue, a Ogden-based nonprofit dog rescue.
