Boston.com reports 2 Doberman Pinschers lost 50 pounds after being lost 13 days on Glastenbury Mountain in Vermont.
The dogs had chased a bear. The Green Mountain Club offered to help in the search.
The dogs were eventually seen near where they took off.
Magnum, 110 pounds before the ordeal, returned at just 50 pounds. Chili was 68 pounds when she left, but only 28 when she returned. Both were malnourished and dehydrated with damaged pads, cuts and scrapes. Magnum still has porcupine quills stuck in his face.
