The story took place in Ukhta on April 17, 2021. There, a dog that once had no home saved an 18-year-old girl from drowning.
On that day, Xenia was walking, as usual, her dog named Gray along the river. It was very early, around 1 am. She released Gray from the leash and he freely ran around nearby. But suddenly the pet disappeared from sight.
The hostess began to call the dog and in response there was a strong howl. Xenia moved in the direction where the dog howled and saw him on the river bank. He continued to howl, looking at the river. Then Xenia saw that a girl was drowning in the river, who was holding onto an ice floe and asking her to help.
Xenia did not take her phone with her. Then she ran to the nearest house, where people called the rescue service. They also tried to pull the girl out of the water themselves.
At that time, ice drifted along the river, the current was very strong, but the girl was still able to hold out before the rescuers arrived, holding on to the ice floe and by the stick that people threw to her on the shore. Soon rescuers arrived and were able to pull out the drowning girl.
“Once we rescued this dog. And now he saved a man. Indeed, at such an early hour there are no people on the street, besides, the place is rather deserted, ”the volunteers who saved Grey, who was once homeless, wrote.
Two years ago, volunteers found Gray with a large bloody wound on his head. The veterinarian then suggested that the animal had been doused with acid. At that time, they did not even think that he would be able to survive. The dog was in critical condition. But Gray turned out to be a real fighter and also found a house with a caring hostess.
