Home to plenty of wild species, the Siberian forest is so big that one could easily get lost with just a few steps. Sad to say, this is exactly what happened to 4-year-old Karina Chikitova. Thankfully, she was with a faithful pal, who made sure she was safe – her dog Kyrachaan.

One day, Karina wandered into the dense Siberian forest but got lost. Hundreds of people searched for her, however no signs of the child were found.

Although Karina was very scared, she wasn’t alone. Her dog Kyrachaan deterred the wolves and bears. He also kept her warm when the temperatures were dropping. In order to survive, they both fed on water and fresh berries.

A week had passed, and the rescuers were on the verge of giving up. But out of the blue, Kyrachaan showed up, trying to point rescuers towards Karina’s direction. They were all inspired to double their efforts and find the young girl.

In a bed of tall grass, around 4 miles away from their village, rescuers found Karina. She was very weak and scared. Miraculously, she had no wounds or injuries, only mild scratches and several bug bites.

When Karina saw Kyrachaan, all she said was, “Why did you leave me?”

In an instant, Karina’s story of survival became famous all around the world. In fact, a few months later, a statue was unveiled at the Yakutsk Airport in honor of Karina and her dog Kyrachaan. Their friendship is truly inspiring.
