200 Mile Trek for Dog to Find Woman Who Saved Her

0

If you are an animal lover and love to hear stories, especially of dogs who appreciate those who care or who have cared for them, you need to read this.

A dog injured in a hit-and-run accident is believed to have walked almost 200 miles to find the Russian woman who nursed her back to health.

Pic shows: Shavi and Nina. A dog in Russia walked for nearly 200 miles to find the good Samaritan who saved its life. The stray dog called Shavi was hit by a car in Rostov-on-Don in Russia. All of her legs were broken as a result. Nina Baranovskaya found the dog on a street, took her home, paid for veterinary treatment and nursed her back to health. But Nina was unable to care for her longterm due to her job and family committments, so she found the pet a new home some 200 miles away. Shavi was well cared for - but it seems her heart pined for her saviour and she decided to go walkabout to find her. Last week Nina was walking on the street and suddenly she felt something touching her on her leg. And she was shocked when she found it was the dog she saved who had made the journey back to her. Nina burst into tears when she saw the dog she rescued last winter. Experts estimate it must have taken her over a week to walk back to Rostov. Now Nina is looking for a larger flat so the duo can be together forever. (ends)

In a story on Metro:

Shavi was left to die by the side of the road after the crash, in southern Russia’s Rostov Oblast region last winter.

She had been living on the streets as a stray when the driver hit her, and then just drove away, Russian media reported.

He left Shavi to die in agony with two broken legs by the side of the road, where she was shivering and freezing.

But luckily, two passersby saw the animal and took her to the vet, before appealing online for someone who could care for her as she recovered.

26-year-old Nina Baranovskaya was the only person who replied to the appeal, it was reported.

She picked up Shavi as soon as she’d had an operation on her hind legs and took her back to her small flat in Rostov-on-Don where she lives with her young daughter and several other pets.

Pic shows: Shavi, when it was injured and taken care of by Nina. A dog in Russia walked for nearly 200 miles to find the good Samaritan who saved its life. The stray dog called Shavi was hit by a car in Rostov-on-Don in Russia. All of her legs were broken as a result. Nina Baranovskaya found the dog on a street, took her home, paid for veterinary treatment and nursed her back to health. But Nina was unable to care for her longterm due to her job and family committments, so she found the pet a new home some 200 miles away.

Nina burst into tears when she saw the dog she rescued last winter. Experts estimate it must have taken her over a week to walk back to Rostov. Now Nina is looking for a larger flat so the duo can be together forever. (ends)

Then she helped the dog learn to walk again, teaching her basic commands and playing with her every day.

But Nina couldn’t look after Shavi in the longterm because she has a small flat and family commitments so she found her pet a loving home with friends 185 miles away.

However, just a few days later the dog went missing and Nina had a phone call from her friends in a panic.

Two weeks later guess where the dog turned up?  You guessed it. Read more here. Guess Nina will need to find a new place….one that allows pets. Isn’t amazing how far a dog will travel for true love?
