Dog in Similar Case As Sheena Rescued

Hi folks,

I received a phone call from Cynthia Hassan to say that her friend's neighbours were keeping their dog tied up all day and night without any food to eat. The dogs ribs were sticking out just like Sheena's.

The friend who called Cynthia is a Malay and Sheena's neighbour who never gave up calling for help for Sheena, even though the DVS ignored her calls according to newspaper reports, is also a Malay.

We are so encouraged to see and hear that despite the "taboo" over dogs and what society perceives in this country as an anti-dog culture among Malays we are touched that we have come across so many Malays who are compassionate towards dogs. We find these people have an overall compassionate nature towards all God's creatures, including human beings. This is what a truly great heart means.

As a result of Cynthia and her friend's act of kindness, Sabrina, an angel managed to persuade the abusive owners to give the dog to her which she promptly named SHAM. Well done, Sabrina! God's angels will forever watch over you for being a true angel for so many animals.

But Sabrina seeks your help now to place SHAM who is a one year old male, in a wonderful, caring home. SHAM was kept without food or water and chained all day and night. He is only a year old. If you are the person who can provide SHAM who has been through hell, a home where he can learn to trust humans again, please write to remembersheena@gmail.com giving us your contact details. Or call Sabrina at 016 631 9018

Here is SHAM's photo below:

    Sham looks like my own dog Crystal, who passed away in January. He's gorgeous! Not sure if my family is ready to take in another one but I hope he ends up in good hands regardless.

    We too are very particular that the family that adopts Sham should actually want him.

    It would be terrible to have rescued Sham only to see him sent somewhere he isn't wanted.

    If no one takes Sham, he will have to be put down, but even that is better than having him suffer in the hands of another cruel owner.

    Does your family not want a dog because of the pain of Crystal's death or because they no longer have the time to care for another one?

    Just curious.

    I'm here in Oman doing something similar.Just yesterday,a gorgeous little puppy appeared at my friend's car just as she was getting into it.We couldn't put it back on the streets and we don't know if it's a stray or it belongs to someone.Anyway,we went around the neighbourhood this evening to look for its owner,but no luck.So this cute energetic puppy is now in another friend's house for the night.If nobody claims him by tomorrow,we will be putting up some notices to re-home him and hope that he'll go somewhere he's loved and wanted!

    So,I wish Sham all the best in finding a new home.Maybe he could go to PAWS instead of being put down if nobody takes him?Putting him down if no one takes him sounds like a rather easy way out,unless it's going to take lots of effort to get him back into the pink of health.

    Hi Louisa,

    I pray you find a wonderful home for your puppy too. I know putting down is an easy way out but the animal shelters that do have a no-kill policy such as Noah's Ark in Johor, are already bursting at the seams.

    Raymond who runs it says they have to be very selective now and his preference is to take the downtrodden, ill and badly neglected animals with very sad stories.

    This is because they stand the least chance of being adopted and also because they deserve to experience joy and love which has eluded them all their lives.

    Noah's Ark is on several acres of land and the animals roam freely there like paradise on earth.

    PAWS too put animals down, Louisa. So it's the same story if SHAM is sent there.

    Let's hope for the best for SHAM and your little puppy.

    Shoba Mano.

    Managed to find a loving home for that little lost puppy! Yay! Hope Sham has or will soon find a loving home.

    Wahooo! Praise be to God! Sham has found a loving home too. Well done with your puppy too, Louisa.
