Dog ‘walks 200 miles to find woman who nursed her back to health after hit-and-run accident’

Dog 'walks 200 miles to find woman who nursed her after hit-and-run'

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.

Pic shows: Nina Baranovskaya. 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)

Brian, who has three ears, is believed to be between four and ten years old.

Brian, who has three ears, is believed to be between four and ten years old.

We’ve all heard about cats having nine lives but have you heard the one about the cat with three ears?

Staff at a Norfolk rescue centre were equally perplexed when one intrepid feline arrived sporting an extra ear.

As Feline Care Cat Rescue in East Harling continue to care for the moggie, it is hoped its owner will now step forward. Brian, as he has been affectionately called, arrived at the centre on Monday after being caught in one of the centre’s traps after setting off security alarms at a nearby business.

Manager of the centre, Molly Farrar, said: “We expected it to be one of our own cats who’d been causing problems so this handsome, mature gentleman was quite a surprise to us.

“We’ve cared for plenty of cats with one eye, three legs or six toes and several cats with no tail left, but this is our first three-eared cat.

The centre is hoping that Brian has not been dumped but has simply got lost.

Miss Farrar, 38, said: “He’s obviously very distinctive with his extra little ear so someone must be missing him or recognise him.

“He’s in a bit of a tatty and skinny state. He’s been in the wars a bit and has a fractured canine tooth and ear mites so he obviously needs looking after.

Before Marnie found herself in the arms of Tina Fey and Taylor Swift, she was a partially blind stray living on the streets. Now her internet fame is helping others

Marnie the dog – a 13-year-old Shih Tzu known for her ever-present tongue and head tilt – has risen from a stray to a star. Now, the Instagram celebrity is using her fame to advocate for senior pups like her.

Shirley Braha, who adopted Marnie three years ago, is using her dog’s growing popularity to shed light on the adoption of senior dogs. She’s created a fund – Marnie’s Old Pals – to help senior dogs in shelters receive necessary veterinary care.

To celebrate Marnie’s 13th birthday and the launch of her new book, Braha’s group held its first fundraiser on Monday night in New York, and asked those who attended to donate $5 to the fund.

I can’t make the meeting, sorry! 💤
“I think it’s just as important to raise awareness about how great it is to welcome a homeless senior dog into your life,” Braha said. “They tend to be calm and sweet and, above all, extremely grateful to get out of a terrifying situation and have a new loving home.”

According to the ASPCA, approximately 7.6 million animals enter shelters nationwide each year. Of those, 3.9 million are dogs and approximately 1.2 million have to be euthanized.

When an adorable seal named Celebration was only a few days old, she found herself already fighting for her life: After being separated from her mother, the baby was stuck in the mud in Frampton Marsh nature reserve in the UK.

Luckily, help quickly arrived on the scene, but Celebration’s rescuers were certainty not who you’d expect. Ian Ellis, who was bird-watching nearby, spotted a herd of 30 cows all gathered in one area. Upon closer inspection, he was surprised to see a little seal pup in the middle of the group.

“My soul could not stand the cries.”

That’s Russian man Anatoly Tuptey speaking with The Siberian Times after the animal-lover braved treacherous conditions to save to kittens trapped in an oil spill.

“My soul could not stand the cries, I went to see. You never know what is going on, I had to check,” said Tuptey after an oil spill in Nefteyugansk, Russia (we can’t pronounce it either).

Tuptey reportedly waded into the oil to rescue the kittens then, using his t-shirt, dried them off and kept them warm.

Retired K9 Spared From Likely Death After Community Rallies To Save Him

Let’s hope Rex gets the retirement he deserves.

A retired police dog who was likely destined for euthanasia has been spared after animal lovers condemned the police department’s decision to send him to a municipal shelter.

Facebook/Operation Save K-9 Rex

The 9-year-old Belgian Malinois, Rex, had served with the Albuquerque Police Department since 2013, and spent several years in the military before that, the Albuquerque Journal reports. Rex was present during the shooting of homeless man James Boyd that led to criminal charges for two APD officers, and appears in video of the incident.

When Rex’s handler, Scott Weimersckirch, retired, the APD said Rex was too old and too bonded to Weimersckirch to be transferred to another handler. But the officer couldn’t adopt Rex due to concerns that the dog would be a threat to his young child, APD spokeswoman Celina Espinoza told local news station KRQE.

A city shelter took Rex in, but the APD said Monday it was likely the dog would be euthanized, since his military and police background would make finding a suitable home difficult.

“He is totally unaware of his limitations and disfigurement!”

The story Anne Graber heard was that Bjarni — the smiling dog with half a nose — was found roaming the streets by an animal control officer.

He had a family, but when they were contacted, they said they didn’t want him back. So Bjarni was brought to a local shelter.

This part Graber knows for sure: Shelter staff reached out to Graber, who is the founder of a Texas-based animal rescue group called St. Francis’ Angels, and asked her if she could help.

Graber immediately said that she’d make sure this dog was loved and made whole.

“He will remain with us until such time he has fully recovered and been adopted,” she says.

St. Francis’ Angels

Graber says this gorgeous boy is having a hard time eating and breathing, since what nose he has left is covering his sinus cavities.

But his personality is intact. He loves to play with other dogs. He loves to be around people. He loves, all around.

“Vivacious and engaging. He is totally unaware of his limitations and disfigurement,” Graber said. “He loves everything that moves.”

The French animal rights group, Cause Animal Nord, has come under fire after a video emerged of the activists taking away a puppy from a crying homeless man in central Paris.

The video shows the man fighting for his dog, but eventually losing out as three members of the group, including the organization’s president, seized the puppy and ran away. The homeless man was left in tears.

The cruel act has been condemned by the media and internet users. A number took to social networks to express their disgust, while others left highly critical messages on the organization’s Facebook page.
