Rescuers say Karina Chikitova was saved by her puppy who kept her warm for more than a week before leaving her side to return home and summon help.

"The girl aged three years and seven months survived by eating wild berries and drinking river water in territory roamed by wild bears and wolves," reported The Siberian Times.

"Rescuers searching for her confronted a bear highlighting the extraordinary danger she faced." Astonishingly, the worst the child's inly injuries were mosquito bites and scratches to her feet.

Karina wandered away from her home in a remote village, accompanied by her puppy whose name has not been revealed despite its heroism. Lost in the wilderness, the small girl made herself beds in the long grasses, which are common in the south-west of the Sakha Republic - Russia's largest region - in summer.

Experts say her chances of survival for such a long period were minimal - Sakha is Siberia's coldest region in winter but at this time of year the nighttime temperatures can reach around 6 degrees Celcius (43F).

The family was initially devastated when Karina's puppy returned to the village of Olom without her. Instead the loyal pooch turned out to be heroic and led rescue teams to his beloved owner's side.

Karnina was reported as being conscious and looking well. After being given something to eat and drink, she was taken to the hospital with her mother by her side.
