WATCH: Dog lost for two weeks in Wicklow mountains found safe

The Golden Retriever was carried down Lugnaquilla in the Wicklow Mountains by two doctors, Jean Francois Bonnet and Ciara Nolan who found her in freezing conditions at the weekend.

Speaking to East Coast FM’s The Morning Show, Bonnet said the dog was terrified, unable to stand or walk and freezing when they found her. They were he said, lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

“It was a very bad day. It was cold, snowy, windy and the visibility wasn’t great. We were almost at the top when my girlfriend Ciara screamed, ‘there is a dog, there is a dog’, and the poor thing was curled up against a rock. She was petrified, freezing cold. She didn’t have the energy to bark or stand,” he said.

He explained she was skin and bone and so frail she had to be carried down. They carried Neesha at first, however, due to the poor weather conditions they found it easier to strap the dog to Bonnet’s backpack using a scarf.

“We walked for about four or five hours to get back to the road and we were very happy to be there at the right time,” he said.

The pair then brought her to their home and contacted an animal rescue group, who managed to track down her owners

The dog’s owner, Erina O’Shea Goetelen, said her family had been searching for Neesha for a fortnight and that it was an “absolute nightmare.”

“Two weeks of just absolute nightmare and worry and stress of not knowing where she was,” she told East Coast FM.

The couple posted the story of the rescue on video-sharing app TikTok where it has so far received more than 181,000 likes and over 4,000 comments.
