Adopted Bulgarian Dog Rescued its Owner in Bonn, it Became a Hero
A Bulgarian dog, adopted in the German city of Bonn, has become a hero. The charming Mina saved her owner's life, but she herself died in a fierce fire. In Bulgaria, Mina was the victim of brutal violence.
In the early hours of February, a fire broke out in the Bonn district of Holzlar. The house of 75-year-old Irmgard Abu-Nay is destroyed by flames. The German pensioner is miraculously alive. She is saved by her dog Mina. But it dies.
From Bulgaria to Bonn
In Bonn Mina has become a hero. Days after the tragic incident, local media drew attention to the story of the dog. Reporter of General Anzeiger, Bonn, Nicholas Otersbach, who reported on the fire in Holzlar, told Deutsche Welle that Mina was a Bulgarian dog. The charming with short black coat (a mixture between a Labrador and another breed) was adopted by the 75-year-old retired three years ago.
The mediator in this case was the Bonn Animal Protection Association, whose roof is the stray animal shelter "Albert Schweitzer".
"Dogs from Bulgaria often arrive with us," she said in a conversation with Deutsche Welle at a Bonn shelter. On the shelter's website there is still a picture of the charming Mina to which the following text is published: "The sensitive Mina can finally leave the animal shelter. The dog, which has repeatedly been the victim of brutal violence in Bulgaria, has already a foster family living in Bonn Holzlar and having a wealth of experience good care. " On the shelter's website they also state that Mincheto, as the shelters call it, will have the opportunity to "get to know the world."
"At first Mina was very cowardly"
In front of Bonn's "General Antaigher", a neighbor, tells that for 75-year-old retiree Irghard Abu-Neo, Mina the dog, was the most cherished thing in her life. The woman has been a widow for many years, and her sons have long gone on their way. "At first the dog was very cowardly," the neighbor remembers, adding, "No wonder, given that it was brought to Bonn by activists, because they treated it badly in Bulgaria." The neighbor added that when she got to know the new people around her, Mina immediately became kind and good.
When the flames broke out, Mina woke up her owner barking. Thanks to the dog, the 75-year-old German woman managed to get out of her home in time. But the dog remained inside. The woman tried to come back and take it out, but the firefighters blocked her. It was already too dangerous. They took Mina into her arms. They tried to revive her, but she died in their hands.
