AMBOY, Wash. -

Two dogs that ran off before a hike were rescued by other hikers after a week in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
    
KING-TV reports Dennis Elton's Britany spaniel named Woody and a chocolate lab named Brock ran when he got to a forest trail near Mount St. Helens Oct. 26.
    
He said he spent hours looking for them with no luck so he posted photos of them on social media and searched for them every day.
    
Corey Theisen found Woody while hiking and said the dog was cold, wet and scared. He posted photos on socials media that got back to Elton.
    
After Elton picked Woody up, his wife called saying someone else had found Brock and posted pictures on social media.
    
Both dogs were about 25 miles from where they had bolted.
