This 14-year-old boy was only separated from his summer camp crew for a short period of time when – due to a few missteps – he found himself in real trouble.
While Juan Heriberto Trevino was searching for firewood at the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range in Galeana, Mexico, he lost his footing on some moving tree trunks and slipped into a ravine.
For the 44 hours that the boy was trapped in the canyon, Max refused to leave his side – the two cuddled together at night for warmth and the canine even lead Juan to water so they could rehydrate.
By the time Juan was rescued, he was suffering from exhaustion and dehydration but was otherwise unharmed.
The Trevino family wanted to adopt the heroic hound for protecting their son from the winding and windy mountains, but he was already a part of a nearby family.
