K9 Rescue Bulgaria has just issued a PRESS RELEASE following their interview with Dr Litov today.


"It was like the scene from a movie, yet for Doctor Georgi Litov it was a nightmare that had become a reality. 

After the mob left, Dr Litov discovered his disabled dog Borko was in pain and very distressed, yet it was not until he watched the news on Television that evening that he realised exactly what had happened to him. In an interview with K9 Rescue today, Dr Litov said "When I heard Borko screaming, I still did not suspect what was going on, thinking that maybe some other dog had sneaked in through a hole in the fence and that they 'argue' as often happens. Despite his disability, Borko will often scare off healthy bigger dogs." Dr Litov continued "Not for a moment did I suspect that Borko was fighting for his life, being attacked by a human animal, trespassing on my property with a huge baseball bat in his hand. Fortunately, he survived this ordeal and now he is safe and comfortable." Dr Litov described today how it all started last year after he found Borko as a puppy in the street, dragging himself on his belly, crying from pain, hunger and fear, his spinal column severed. 

Appalled how someone could beat a puppy and fracture his spine, leaving him to suffer in this way, Dr Litov filed a Petition to the Regional Public Prosecutor's Office (see Appendix 1) yet did not even receive an acknowledgement from them. 

"From that moment, Borko became a part of my life forever", Dr Litov said "I've been nursing and caring for him as my own child ever since. He made friends with my other dog Danny, also rescued from the streets in 2008 and later Jacko, who I found on the streets limping after having been abused and one of his front legs badly injured." Dr Litov continued "Borko has made significant progress with his condition since then - at the beginning he was paraplegic, yet slowly, as the time went by, he started moving his legs and now he can even stand up with very little support. That is a miracle. The vets believed he would never be able to walk again and humane euthanasia seemed for them the logical solution. Yet Borko proved them wrong."
