An animal-lover from Dacorum has rescued three traumatised dogs from the state which ordered a cull of strays ahead of the Winter Olympics.

Silvi Sutherland of Hemel Hempstead’s Laidon Square, a volunteer for animal fostering charity Hearts & Paws UK, pumped thousands of pounds into bringing over a trio of cast-out canines who had been living in harsh conditions out in the wild near a holiday village 70km from Moscow.
