Sochi Rescue Dog Finds New Loving Home in Houston

After being rescued from the streets of Sochi just days before the Winter Olympics, a lucky dog has found a new loving family in the Houston area. The Sochi rescue dog was one of many that was saved after reportedly being poisoned and shot in the city’s effort to clean up the streets before all the tourists arrived. Thanks to a massive outpouring of global support, some of those dogs were able to be saved.

For the rescued dog, his long 6,000-mile journey ended with belly rubs and kisses at Houston’s Bush Airport. The pup’s new owner, Carol Davis, said bringing him to Houston was a mission of love. The new owner plans to call the beloved pup Stetson and she hopes he will feel right at home on her ranch near Sealy.

“I wish I knew how to say hello in Russian,” Davis said, holding her dog.

While their languages may be different, it’s crystal clear that Stetson and Davis already have formed a bond.

The founder of a border collie rescue group said when she saw what was happening to dogs in Russia, she knew she had to take action.

“I thought if I could just take one, that I can save from the streets and give him a life, it will be something I can carry the rest of my life and my dog’s life,” said Davis. “It was just some special thing I wanted to do.”

Davis conveyed that she loved her experience so much, she is considering adopting yet another dog from Sochi.
