Malia, Malik & Amira
Malik and Malia were rescued by a Brit working in Iraq, he is desperate to bring them home and has already donated the first £1500 of their funding but we now need your help to raise the remainder.
Let me introduce Malik and Malia, they are two dogs that I came across as pups whilst working on the Rumaila oilfield in Southern Iraq. They were at different locations but suffered the same horrible conditions, no food or clean water and suffering on a daily basis the threat of being kicked or stoned. Malik in particular saw all but 3 of his litter poisoned and was then sadly outcast by the other two. So he spent most of his time huddled under a caravan avoiding everyone. I fed him scraps of food that I took from the canteen. He was traumatised when his brothers and sisters were sadly killed and didn’t eat for a while, and became extremely thin. Over time I was able to get him to eat small pieces of food, but he was still very withdrawn, which is why I chose to adopt him.
Malia has a similar story. She was one of 7 pups and from the start she was very weak, so consequently when scraps of food were found she was the last there and ate virtually nothing. She suffered an injury to her back right leg, where I suspect she was kicked. This healed to a degree, but she has a strange walk now! Over time the litter reduced in numbers but she became detached from the remainder and spent most of her time near an oilfield police building. She used to make such a pitiful cry when I saw her, and I feared that her submissive nature meant she would not survive long in the desert. So I decided to adopt her too as her and Malik have suffered the same detachment from their siblings.
They are both approximately 10 months old and would like to offer these two dogs a life without pain and fear, just love but we need your help so that we can be reunited.
Shortly after Malia and Malik arrived at the safety of the kennels Malia gave everyone a big shock when she delivered 7 puppies. Sadly 6 of her puppies did not make it but one did and she found herself the name of Amira and their owner has decided he cannot possibly leave Amira behind so we will also be bringing her home to the UK!
