Question: Why did Maya give up in the end? I know she was bitten in the leg, but she can still walk around on the other 3 legs?

Answer: She may be able to walk on three legs, but traveling a long distance and keeping up with the other dogs in such extreme circumstances would be too much and would be extremely painful. Also, seal bites often cause a serious bacterial infection which would quickly sicken and incapacitate Maya.

Question: So, how do they find the dogs?

Answer: I believe they returned to the base camp. The dogs apparently stayed in the area and, although there were no dogs when the people first got to the camp, the dogs heard them and came over the hill.


Continuity mistake: when Maya goes to lasso the Doctor after he fell through the ice, her left paw is through the loop in the rope, but when it cuts to the Doctor and back, the loop is shorter and horizontal.
