Aden Pfitzner Biography
Who is Aden Pfitzner ?
A distraught dog owner whose pet went missing was filmed by a friend with a drone during the emotional moment he saw and rescued the kelpie from a dormant volcanic crater.
Aden Pfitzner, 24, and his partner Kelsea Fox, 22, were overjoyed when they found their beloved six-month-old pup, Macey, on Tuesday.
Drone footage shows the dog wandering up the side of the volcano at Valley Lakes crater near Mt Gambier in South Australia before Pfitzner scrambles up rocks and Macey jumps into his arms.
Drone footage that helped spot the dog filmed the reunion (pictured) as the pet owner scaled rocky crags and brush to reach the dog, which was wagging its tail excitedly.
Pfitzner said he was careful not to startle Macey or alert her too soon because she didn’t want her to jump off the rocks at him and hurt herself.
“She licked my face and I gave her a big hug…I can’t believe we found her where she was.” You could make a movie out of this,’ the tradie told The Adelaide Advertiser.
The drone filmed the meeting as the pet owner scaled rocky cliffs and brush to reach the dog a few feet away, tail wagging excitedly.
He was caught by Ivey Rain who said that he didn’t stop until he found the dog.
“We received information that a lady had heard a dog in distress along the bluff at Valley Lake,” she said on social media.
“Luckily I had three full batteries for my drone so I went and searched along the edge of Valley Lake. My third battery only had 20 percent left when I suddenly found it on the edge of this sheer cliff.
‘What an amazing feeling it was to be a part of some good news.’
But Mr. Pfitzner and the dog weren’t out of the woods yet, as he had his hands full carrying Macey to the edge of a steep cliff.
The dog lover’s thoughts turned to how he would get back down the rocky slope, but luckily his friend Garrett Ha had come up behind him.
“I was lucky he got up because I’m not sure how he would have gotten back down,” Pfitzner said.
It also turned out that there was a rope used by previous climbers nearby, so the pair used it to help back down the slope, passing the pup between them on the way.
Once back, Macey was also met by an elated Mrs. Fox.
The pup went missing Sunday after she ran away from her while Pfitzner was trying to tie her up at a nearby gas station.
He chased the dog, but she ran away and was out of sight as Mr. Pfitzner campaigned on social media to help get the dog back, offering a $1,000 reward.
There was a huge response with the post being shared thousands of times, leading to some fake sightings of his dog.
But Macey still couldn’t be found.
Then a woman said she had heard a dog in distress at a nearby wildlife park, so Pfitzner scouted the area with the help of some council workers.
‘We went there and I got out and heard him cry. Just as the wind died down, I heard her,’ he said.
The find prompted social media commentators to congratulate the couple.
‘Congratulations to the owners of Macey’s for their attentive search and for not giving up! They are beautiful people with big hearts,” one post read.
“If all dog owners had as much love for their dogs as you two, the world would be a better place.”
