We always knew there was a reason they said dog is man's best friend!!
Otis Orth was recently taking his snowmobile into town in Trapper Creek, Alaska with his golden retriever Amber when he hit an unseen dip and was launched 50 feet from his vehicle!
Due to injury, the 52-year-old was not able to move his arms or legs and was stuck in snow that was so deep, passing vehicles couldn't see him!
Luckily, his loyal pooch stuck by his side and cuddled with him overnight to keep him warm, and the very next day Otis tried to send Amber out for help! Initially, she didn't want to leave her owner's side, but she eventually caught the attention of Tom Taylor and his brother who were able to call for help!
Otis was airlifted to Providence Alaska Medical Center where he had to have surgery on his spine and he could potentially have some of the toes on his left foot amputated due to frostbite. However, it could have been a lot worse if he didn't have Amber there with him to call for help!
You can see Amber's incredible face (above) with Alaskan State Trooper Lucas Hegg.
