WARNING! This video will probably bring tears to your eyes. Kudos to the Conway Area Humane Society for rescuing this 17-year-old dog from deep in the New Hampshire woods.

As far as I can tell, the story goes like this:

Rocky, a 17-year-old shepherd mix with cancer was spooked by fireworks on the 4th of July and took off for the woods.

Rocky's condition made it difficult for him to maneuver through the rough terrain, so he couldn't make it back out.

The owner spent days searching for the dog and eventually thought Rocky was gone forever.

Luckily, a jogger spotted the dog and the Conway Area Humane Society was contacted.

On to the rescue.

The video does a great job of giving you the rest of the story, so grab some tissues and get ready.
