The "canyoner" friends then had to make a choice: leave the dog hungry and refrigerated perish at the bottom of the canyon, or take the risk of the save , even getting into trouble through the very narrow walls of the place.
It did not take long for all agree. After having offered him Bayonne ham to lure him, the group and the small black and white dog returned to the mainland four hours later, safe and sound , after making several jumps in the vertical at above the void
Call to the owner
What was the dog doing alone at the bottom of the canyon? Nobody knows. The group of friends who found him thinks that he could accidentally fall into the abyss at night, because of the rising of the waters caused by the storm.

A call to the owner , in order to find the master of Bitet, was launched. The dog is not chipped and is not known veterinary services. If no one shows up to get Bitet, then Roussie will try to find a family for life.
