When a 4-year-old girl named Karina Chikitova wandered into a Siberian forest back in July 2014, her family feared they would not find her alive. She got lost and they knew they needed to get to her quickly or they might not find her at all.
It was Karina’s grandmother who alerted the police and very soon one hundred people banded together to search for her by air and land. After over a week without results, her closest started to lose hope.
But, thankfully, Karina was not alone, her faithful dog, Kyrachaan remained by her side. Then one day, Kyrachaan finally returned to the village and for the rescuers this meant only one thing – Karina had not survived. But he was acting strange like he wanted them to follow him, and they did… They found the poor little girl in the grass safe and unharmed.
She somehow managed to survive by eating fresh berries and drinking water, and her loyal dog was the one who warded off bears and wolves and cuddled up against her to keep her warm in the freezing nighttime temperatures. A truly amazing story and an even more amazing dog!
