Born to Run

On October 9, 2010 a Borzoi puppy was hit by a car in Daejeon, South Korea. He was brought to the city pound, where his mangled legs were wrapped in surgical tape. He was not given any other veterinary care. He weighed about 45 pounds.

On October 11, a woman named Nataliya was at the pound and saw Born to Run huddled in his cage. She was unable to take him out because there is a mandatory 10 day waiting period. She was determined to get him out but did not know whom to ask for help. After several days she heard about a group named Animal Rescue Korea. She contacted them, and on October 18, Born to Run was released.

Nataliya brought him to Africa Clinic, where he tested positive for parvovirus. He weighed 22 pounds. There is a Youtube video of him lying on the vet's examining table
