Drèïfus Xena is a very lucky and very special dog. Abandoned as an Alsatian puppy with only three legs, she was rescued and sent Noah's Ark. The owner couldn't afford the RM2000 to amputate her leg so they chose to PTS her which cost only RM 80. Fortunately for the lucky girl, the vet called The Sanctuary.
On top of that, the kind-hearted sponsor with a love for German Shepherds who sponsored Flame in the last few months of his life at the Ark (see story below) has transferred her sponsorship to Xena :D. (Thank you so much dear sponsor.) The sponsor named her Drèïfus, after the famous Captain Alfred Dreyfus, who was born in Alsace in 1959. He went through hard times and was honoured as a hero. The name also means drèï, which is 3 in Alsatian, a German dialect spoken in Alsace in eastern France. She is very sweet and has recently made a new best friend with another prominent Alsatian called Shalom. Don't you think she looks happy and at home?

Say Hi to Flame, a 10-year old German Shepherd cruelly dumped outside NANAS recently. Lying in the middle of the road, he was too weak to walk. He could have been run over by the industrial lorries that drove by. Thankfully the driver of one of the lorries was kind enough to stop at NANAS to call for help. He seemed to have been used for breeding and he has very weak hind legs.He also has a heart problem. He was given medication and has been with NANAS for a few months now. He is slowly regaining his ability to walk but needs to be treated with medication. Flame has found a kind-hearted soul to sponsor him, but if you would like to contribute to his medical expenses, please let us know. Thank you so much in advance.
Postscript: Unfortunately, due to his age and illness, Flame has left us. Before he came to the Ark, he was abandoned as an old and a sick dog. At the Ark, in the last few months before his passing, he was loved, cared for and sheltered. You can see the happiness in his face in the picture. He even had the good karma to find a kind-hearted sponsor. So we let him go and know he is now in a happy place looking down on the Ark: another guardian angel of the Ark.
