Last summer, a 3-Year-Old Girl Siberian girl went missing after following her father into the woods with her pup. Karina became separated from her dad and spent the next 11 days wondering around in the tall grasses of Sakha with only her dog to protect her.
Little Karina ate berries and drank water from the creek for 11 days before her dog ran to get help.
Despite being badly bitten by insects, the little girl was surprisingly OK.
Nikolayev said that the rescuers saw traces of her bare feet. 'We began searches, thinking that if she had lost her shoes she would try and stay away from the deep forest, because there is a lot of sharp sticks there. In the morning, almost right after we began searches - we only made 20 metres - we saw Karina sitting in the grass. We rushed to her, got her a little tea and grabbed her to run back to the car and doctors.
'I carried Karina myself to the car, and she was light as a bird. She was hardly ten kilograms - but amazingly she was fully conscious.'
Ekaterina Andreeva, a psychologist with the rescue team, said: 'We can say that the girl's mind was not hurt. She is talking, she reacts normally to everything around her. She recalls what happened to her.'
Moral of the story? Dogs are awesome, always be prepared, and know how to live off the land.
