The two skiers had been looking for Apollo for more than 20 minutes.
They were ready to give up their search when one of them spotted a nose sticking out from the snow.
The men frantically began digging using their hands and shovels, and soon found the canine.
Amazingly, Apollo was fine – just cold.
According to an avalanche center, 93% of human avalanche victims can be recovered alive if they are dug out within 15 minutes.
