It is often said that in nature, the strongest survive. This is why animals have developed such a strong instinct for survival over time. In the Aosta Valley, a 7-year-old female Malinois wandered for 16 days without food or shelter among the Matterhorn glaciers. The dog specializes in finding missing persons under avalanche was strangely distant from his master Lucio Trucco, and returned after several days, resistant at temperatures up to -25 ° C .

According to her master, Malice had not moved away: “She must have followed a particular scent, Lucio Trucco supposed. We looked for her for ten days, even in a helicopter and in a drone. We thought she was in a crevasse or at least stuck in. Two weeks later, I thought: ‘either she went down to Zermatt, on the Swiss side, or someone took her in an apartment, or I fear the worst. she came back last night, perhaps after feeling the onset of bad weather, like wild animals. “

She came back the skin on her bones, without an ounce of energy, but the important thing is that she came back. To recover, she will have to start eating again little by little, in order to avoid a possible torsion of the stomach. According to her master, the bitch never went down into the valley, otherwise, she would have got dirty and smelled like a wild animal on her return. On the other hand, it seems that Malice was wandering at an altitude of between 3,500 and 3,800 meters.
