the Woman Who Rescued Her”
By Jeffery Pritchett
“A Russian dog named Shavi was
hit by a car and left for dead by the driver. She was saved by a
woman named Nina who took her in, nursed her back to health, and
then found her a home. But Shavi escaped from her new home and
walked nearly 200 miles back to be with her guardian angel.
Last winter, Shavi had been
trying to survive as a street dog during the harsh Russian winter
when her life nearly ended. She was the victim of a hit-and-run,
which resulted in two badly broken legs, among other injuries. She
nearly froze to death, but two good Samaritans found her and
brought her to a veterinarian. They took their plea to find Shavi a
home to the public, and only one person responded– Nina
Baranovskaya. The woman brought the injured dog back to her
Rostov-on-Don home, and nursed her back to health. According to
Komsomolskaya Pravda, she taught Shavi how to walk again, and
trained her to understand basic commands.
Though she would have loved to
have kept her, obstacles prevented Nina from doing so. Her
apartment was too small, especially with three cats and two other
rescue dogs, and her job and family commitments kept her from
giving the new one as much attention as she needed. As much as it
pained her to do it, she searched for someone to take her in, but
the only friends willing to do so lived 180 miles away. They lived
out in the countryside, and Shavi would have more room to romp
around. Nina believed this was truly the best choice for her.
Almost two weeks later, Nina was
walking down the road when she was startled by the sensation of
something brushing up against her leg– it was Shavi! Nina burst
into tears, hardly able to believe that this dog walked so far just
to find her. When she leaned down, Shavi jumped right into her
What was most fascinating about
the reunion is that during the time Shavi had vanished, Nina’s
family had moved to a bigger apartment, about five bus stations
away. “Of course, now she has remained with us for good. I would
never give this kind of friend away again. Animals are the most
loyal and loving creatures in the world. For every drop of human
love, they are willing to give all of theirs in return, and I know
that from personal experience. Shavi is like a child to me
