Beth Cole, Sage's owner, said that her neighbors and friends searched, looking for the beloved dog, but after seven days they had given up hope, almost.

Dan Estrada, Cole's neighbor, and his friend Victor Lopez were hiking Saturday when they found Sage laying in a stream, KSBW reported.

They thought she was dead, but when she realized they were there, she lifted her head. Sage was too weak to walk so Estrada hoisted the lab over his shoulders and hiked up the canyon, reuniting Sage with her family.
