All hope is lost if her dog goes home with no; then the dog leads rescuers to the missing 3-year-old, who was known as the miracle woman. Naida only left the girl’s side to find people to come rescue them and a statue was introduced at the Yakutsk Airport devoted to their perseverance.
On July 29th, 2014, Rodion Chikitova embarked on a visit to his native village. Unbeknownst to him his husband, Karina, followed him to the woods. Their pup, Naida, followed her. Karina’s mother thought Rodion had brought her along, and it was not until they talked on the telephone a few days later that their worst fears were realized.
Crews hunted by land and air for five days without a trace of her. Some of the guys on the floor were even made to fend off a bear. Chances of finding the girl and pup alive in these conditions and 40-degree weather have become increasingly slim. However, after nine days, the dog returned to the girl’s village of Olom.
That was the moment when our hearts sank, because we thought at least with her dog Karina had chances to survive night in Yakutia are cold and some areas have already gone into minus temperatures,” clarified Afanasiy Nikolayev, spokesman for the Sakha Republic Rescue Service.
Nikolay Chochchasov was motivated by the pair’s stoutheartedness, and created a bronze sculpture within their likenesses.
