Guarascio and Parkinson described the rescue in a Facebook post last week.
"Dylan and I drove up last night after we heard about him, and to our surprise, he was sitting in a little turn-off on the side of the road right where the girl said she had seen him," they wrote. "We spent an hour trying to coax him to us with food but it didn't get us very far."
They returned with a package of hot dogs and stayed near the frightened dog until 3 a.m., trying to get him to safety. They finally headed home without him, but returned the next day with a new plan.
"I got down on the ground with my back to the pup, who we have decided to call Bear (okay, Baby Bear to be exact) and slowly started crawling backwards towards where he was laying." Amanda wrote on Facebook.
When Bear looked like he was getting nervous, Guarascio pretended to be hurt.
