Phil - The Rescue Dog + Blogger


My name is Phil. I'm one of the lucky dogs to be rescued by Sochi Dogs!  I don't remember much, I just remember that something happened to me when I was walking on the street one day and then I got to the vet clinic.  I did not feel well at the time and one wonderful doctor and several other people who work there helped me. When I was better I heard someone say, "We cannot put him down, he fought so hard".  So they called Sochi Dogs asking to take me to the shelter, and when they heard my story they rushed out to help me. 

I  went to live at the shelter, which was great. Masha took care of me, I loved to play with the other dogs, and hang out with a little boy, Platon who would show me his toys.

Masha gives me a hug good-bye. 

One day Masha said it was time that I find a forever family and get a wheelchair so that I could walk long distances and run just like everyone else. 

I was a little scared because it's tough to find a family. I'm a smart and loving boy and I know I'll be wonderful companion but I don't know how to find them. The folks at Sochi Dogs said they'd help!  I got all cleaned up, put on my best collar, and Masha took me to the airport.

It's a long trip and I won't bore you with the details but on Saturday, May 26 I landed in the Big Apple! 

I got a very special welcome at the airport, and a gift—my own wheel-chair! Wow, I still can't believe I'm here and just how lucky I am. Thank you for everything Masha, Vlada, my vet Olesya, my friend Platon and all my furry friends at the shelter!  I love you all! 

Now that I am state-side I am looking for a foster/forever family! Can you help? Please share my story so I can have the family I've always dreamed of! 

Who could it imagine, I am in the US!

Just landed
