Sadly not all adventures are without risk.When it comes to hiking or exploring with animals, things become more complicated, especially when you find yourself lost in the middle of nowhere.
Tonka and Little P were out on a hike in Colorado with their owner Kris Busching, 33, and his friend Mark when the group found themselves lost.

As he lost his footing, Kris tried to pull his dogs up safety but they all tumbled to the bottom of the canyon.
via: gofundmeKris was tragically killed on impact, while Tonka and Little P were both injured. The distraught pit bulls stayed by Kris’ body until help finally arrived a day later.
After being rushed to the emergency vet, the 2 brothers “who lost their world suddenly," comforted each other as they both dealt with the pain of their injuries and their loss.

The shelter is now looking for someone who is able to adopt both dogs so that they won’t be separated.
via: gofundmeDue to the family being “overwhelmed with funeral expenses and unable to afford" medical costs, a GoFundMe campaign was set up to raise money for the pups.
As of today, the campaign had raised 20,540 dollars for the pair, far succeeding their initial goal of 8,000 dollars.
