Newsline: Hero Dog Diesel’s Replacement Handed To French Ambassador in Moscow

A puppy offered to France as a replacement for a police dog killed in an anti-terror raid has been handed to the French ambassador in Moscow. The two-month-old German Shepherd called Dobrynya has been given by the Russians in a show of solidarity following the massacre in Paris last month. Dobrynya, who has been living at a police dog centre in the Moscow region, is named after a medieval Russian knight famed for his strength, chivalry and courage. He replaces seven-year-old Belgian Shepherd Diesel who was killed on 18 November during an operation against jihadists holed up in a Paris apartment. The raid followed the 13 November attacks that left 130 people dead. The puppy was presented to ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert at the French embassy in Moscow. He will travel to France next month, when the quarantine process will be completed. There will also be a welcome ceremony in Paris.
