Apparently the Turkish government had decided that all the street dogs in Istanbul were a problem. Their solution was to make a plan to catch the dogs and ship them out to the "country". And leave them there to starve.
People in Istanbul really like the street dogs. They feed them and put up sidewalk shelters for them. They just don't want them in their homes. So these people didn't want all the dogs to die.
A rescue organization was formed there and they got in touch with another rescue in Canada and Bulut was one of the dogs they picked to come here.
Why her? No idea - she got lucky!
