|A story about Samantha - comrade, friend and family by Darren Chan|
To begin, I lead a very sad and lonely life, being surrounded by high fences and not knowing when my next meal would come.
All I ever wanted was to be cared and loved but all these change when I was brought to be put down. I could smell death and it made me think of my five puppies that did not make it. Afraid and apprehensive, my injuries that I sustained while protecting my children made it worse. I was alone, scared and depressed for the freedom I sought was going to be taken away from me!

At such a critical moment, a kind soul managed to rescue and nurse me back to health. It was not easy for him but I was delighted to see him as he was familiar and close to me. I am forever grateful for having him as a friend and for those that made that decision to save me too.

Its all about respecting each other.
See my happy smile? I am finally free and save, knowing that I have a place to call home.
I promise to be a good dog and I am looking forward to make new friends at the ark!
