Russia: Dog Life

LJ user drugoi posts a photo story (RUS) about the kind man Ilya and his 44 dogs, many of them legless or otherwise disabled, living in a house outside Moscow: “For almost 20 years already he's been adopting these street dogs, treating them and leaving them to live with him. Half of those who live in Ilya's big house are ordinary mutts, and the rest are also mutts – but they have managed to learn what human being are like: they are invalids. Beaten, maimed, half-alive, they show up here and get their treatment, housing, food and the human warmth that they missed while living in the big city.”
