The animal was living in the Krasnodar area in very bad conditions, when Aleksei and his wife decided to adopt her. After living at their home for a while, he brought her to the clinic.

The doctor quickly noticed that Yasha had a real talent for reassuring stressed and sick dogs that came to the clinic to receive treatment. On the other hand, the cats didn’t seem to be the biggest fans.
