Dog leads rescuers to 3-year-old lost in wilderness for 11 days

Animal Health SmartBrief | Aug 14, 2014

A family in Siberia is grateful to their pet dog who helped them rescue their 3-year-old daughter, Karina, who was lost in a bear- and wolf-inhabited wilderness for 11 days. Karina and her dog wandered off, and the dog stayed with her for nine days, keeping her warm and possibly safe from wildlife. The dog then returned home and led rescuers -- who had all but given up hope of finding Karina -- to the girl, who apparently suffered no major injuries. GrindTV (08/13)
