Abandoned dog walks 125 miles to find owner – gets rejected again

She journeyed through the Siberian forest, braving mountain lions and bears, just to find them.


An abandoned dog has captured the hearts of millions together with her heartbreaking story.
Meet Maru, a sweet, loveable working dog who decided to be reunited together with her owners in the least costs. Unfortunately for the valuable girl, her owners didn’t share her love.



Maru started her life out pleasantly enough. She was born and raised within the kennels of an adoring, responsible breeder in Novosibirsk, Russia. The dog’s breeder, Alla Morozova, raised Maru to 5-months-old when she put her up for adoption. a few in Krasnoyarsk, nearly 400 miles away, was lucky enough to require her home.

Sadly, 6 months later, Alla received a call from the couple saying they didn’t want to stay the dog in any case .

The couple had been with the dog for half a year before deciding that they were “allergic” to Maru. As per Alla’s contract, the couple gave her a call to ask her to require Maru back.

“I never hand over my puppies and when a dog is bought, it's stipulated that the owners should inform me if they are doing not need a dog anymore,” explains Alla to the Siberian Times.



While Alla was heartbroken for Maru, she wanted to bring her back until she could find her the proper forever family. The breeder made arrangements with the couple to possess her brought back by train for the long trip back to the kennels.

Unwilling even to form the journey together with her , the couple hired out someone to “chaperone” the dog back to Novosibirsk. The attendant was alleged to look after Maru on the long train ride and confirm her needs were met.

Unfortunately for everybody , they underestimated the dog’s devotion to her adopters.




In order to succeed in Novosibirsk from Krasnoyarsk, the train has got to travel through many miles of the Russian taiga. a huge wilderness covered in thick, old-growth forest that borders the subarctic circle.

Such forest can only be found during a few places within the world, and are still thickly populated with bears, mountain lions, wolves, and every one other manner of wildlife. this is often to mention nothing of the risks of the mountainous terrain itself.

Sad because it was, the ride was going fine until the dog began to wonder where her owners were.


Around 125 miles into the train trip, Maru was struck with a scare .
“The dog had a scare , she was frightened,She had been brought by her owners, then they disappeared somewhere. The noise of the train scared her…” Alla says.

At now , the dog’s panic became unbearable. She was getting to find her owners, and zip was getting to stop her.

“The dog jumped on the compartment door, kicked the handle to open it, and almost threw the conductor out of the way. She jumped out sort of a bullet. When the door opened to the platform, she jumped out into the night, into the taiga,” Alla relays what Maru’s chaperone had said.




Maru’s “attendant” says he yelled for the dog to return back, but the stop was short and before he knew it the train was moving again.
Not knowing what else to try to to , he called the owners to offer them the bad news. In turn, they called Alla to let her know the dog simply wouldn’t be exposure . They explained what happened, and were basically getting to leave it at that. Alla asked the couple to travel look for Maru at the Achinsk station where she had fled the train and, unbelievably, they really refused her!

“That angered me. The owners weren't upset in the least , like, well, the dog is lost and that’s alright . That was their answer. They gave the dog away and therefore the load fell off their shoulders,” Alla fumed.

In the meantime, Maru was on her own journey through the cold and terrifying taiga.



Frantic with worry, Alla hit the streets with a stack of flyers, passing them out and posting them wherever she could to seek out her dog. She spread the word everywhere she went, and two days later it finally paid off.

Maru had finally been found, all the way back in Krasnoyarsk’s industrial area, near where her parents lived.
“She had walked and run two and a half days. Luckily neither bears ate her, nor wolves chewed her up. Volunteers found her in an industrial zone. The dog was very tired. She was lame, her paws were broken. The pads were damaged. Her muzzle was broken. Maru fell from the railway embankment. The volunteers who found her claim that she was ‘even in tears'” explains Alla.




While Alla has no doubts that Maru traveled back to Krasnoyarsk to seek out her owners, she was still in awe over the dog’s amazing sense of navigation.

“I’m sure that she was trying to find her house. Dogs are very attached to people. She didn't run to Novosibirsk, she wanted to travel back where she lived. it's surprising that she went the proper way. Geographically, she had no reference points in the least . within the city she wont to walk only within the yard, she never went anywhere else. And to form her away through the wild taiga, it's a tremendous case,” she says.



To Alla’s immense gratitude, her friend Alyona Makhova volunteered to personally drive the heartbroken dog back to her first range in Novosibirsk. While she was sad and hurt by her owner’s rejecting her a second time, there was one good thing that came of it.

Maru need to be reunited together with her dog parents again!

Based on Maru’s reaction, the sweet dog’s mother and father were a welcome sight to the incredible girl. She was ecstatic to greet them when she arrived in Novosibirsk.

Alla plans to stay Maru until she has fully recovered from the trauma of being abandoned, then rejected after traveling all that way alone through the forest. She is additionally determined to form sure that subsequent family she adopts Maru bent are going to be her forever family.
