— -- What began as a road trip of sorts became an adventure of a lifetime for a Los Angeles man who took a chance on two abandoned pups.

Jordan Kahana, 30, was driving to the Grand Canyon in December 2016, when he came across a pair of puppies in the middle of the Arizona desert.

He brought them into his car and took them to the veterinarian, who told him they were dehydrated. But the good news was that they'd be OK.

Jordan Kahana rescued Zeus and Sedona as he was taking a trip to the Grand Canyon. He found them in what he called "middle of nowhere, Arizona."

Kahana named the duo -- believed to be German shepherd-border collie mixes -- Zeus and Sedona. The trio has been inseparable ever since, and Kahana has been documenting their journey every step of the way.

Jordan Kahana was on a road trip more than a year ago when he came across two abandoned puppies. He adopted them and named them Zeus and Sedona.

"It was a surreal moment but the best year of my life since," he told ABC News today.

Kahana and the dogs have been to 35 states and have covered 30,000 miles together. They've traveled to from Washington D.C. to Chicago to Austin, Texas, and everywhere in between and beyond.

"Getting to adventure with these guys, doing cross-country road trips, seeing national parks, having dogs with you at all times has just been truly a life-changing experience for me," Kahana said.

Jordana Kahana said he hoped his adventures, which he documents on social media, encourage others to adopt pets.

He has shared their adventures on social media, hoping that their "furrytale" is an inspiration to others.

"I couldn't encourage enough for others to adopt as well," he said. "I look forward to where our adventures take us."
