Two hikers have rescued a dog who went missing on the fells two weeks ago.
Zeus, a young Dogue de Bordeaux, disappeared while walking up Place Fell in Patterdale.
Following a number of failed attempts in tracking him down, a large-scale search operation was due to take place on Sunday.
However, West Cumbrian men Jez Starkey and Adam Briggs went out this morning to try and track Zeus down and found the famished dog near to where he went missing.
Jez, from Whitehaven, said the dog’s lead was tangled in bracken and after feeding him a couple of protein bars and a chicken sandwich, he was “bouncing and full-of-life.”
Zeus was taken to a Carlisle vets to be checked over before being reunited with his owners, believed to be from the Kendal area.
