The dog was put on a train to be taken back to the kennel where she was born, but she managed to escape from the compartment, and then walked 125 miles through Siberian forests, fending off bears and wolves as she frantically tried to go home to her heartless, beloved owner.
There is no creature more loyal to humans than a dog, even if we're really cruel and mean to them. This is a phenomenal story of how a dog trekked 125 miles through Siberian forests, fending off bears and wolves as she frantically tried to go home to her beloved owner. Little did she know that her owner had rejected her. Maru, also known as Manora, a one-year-old Bullmastiff, was put on the Trans-Siberian train to take her back to the kennels where she was born after her owner said she was allergic to her and that she did not want to keep her or take care of her any longer, according to The Siberian Times.

But, Maru somehow managed to escape from the train heading west from Krasnoyarsk to Novosibirsk, and she is said to have used her paws to open a compartment door and fled as it stopped at a remote station near Achinsk. Staff in the train desperately tried to get Maru to stop as they shouted her name out loud and ran behind her, but with no luck as she was determined to get back to her owner.
This story broke my heart. Poor Maru deserves the same unconditional loyalty and love she carries in her heart. - Dog walks 125 miles 'with tears in her eyes' back to owner who rejected her. https://t.co/WLM7EQCKZT— Katie (@LuxMeaMundiAM) July 21, 2019
Soon enough, kennel owner Alla Morozova organized a search party to find the lost dog and pleaded for information on social media, in Novosibirsk. Sadly, there was no news of Maru, but unbelievably, after two-and-a-half days later, the exhausted and wounded Maru was discovered at an industrial estate, close to the home of the owner who rejected her six months ago. It was said that Maru appeared to "be in tears" when she was found.
Animal rescue is full of owners who are "allergic", lucky escape, the dog is better off without such owners— Neil (@Neil23578950) July 21, 2019
The smart pooch had gone east next to the Trans-Siberian railway track - the longest in the world - and made it through 125 miles of wild countryside. She just wanted to get back home to her owner. "Luckily neither bears ate her, nor wolves chewed her up," Alla said. "The dog was very tired. She was lame, her paws were broken. The pads on her feet were damaged. Her muzzle was broken."

Before Maru was found and recognized, she fell off a railway embankment in Krasnoyarsk. Exhaustion had finally caught up to her. Staff from the train told Alla that Maru had suffered a "panic attack" and was "frightened" of the noise of the train and being away from her home and her owners. When the train stopped she "jumped on the compartment door, kicked the handle to open it and almost threw the conductor out of the way," they said.
"She jumped out like a bullet. When the door opened to the platform, she jumped out into the night, into the taiga [swampy Siberian forest]." Alla is convinced that Maru would have made it all the way back home if it weren't for her injuries. "I'm sure she was looking for her house," she said. "Dogs are very attached to people. She did not run to Novosibirsk, she wanted to go back to where she lived."
She "went the right way", even though "geographically she had no reference points". Alla also added that she was furious that the owner who rejected Maru did not even offer to help search for the lost dog. The thing is, Maru's previous owner was undeserving of Maru's love. Now, Maru has been reunited with her mother and father at Alla's kennels in Novosibirsk, after being driven the whole way back by Alla's friend Alyona Makhova, and is being treated for her injuries.
