Sahraa, the Kuwaiti Desert Dog

We have a new member of the family: Sahraa (desert in Arabic), who was rescued from the only animal shelter in Kuwait when it burnt down a few months ago. She is a Kuwaiti desert dog, an indigenous breed in that country and is one of the sweetest dogs I've even had the pleasure of knowing, especially amazing considering she and her shelter mates went through: the fire, the long trip to the States (and then getting stranded in Europe because of the volcano), a short time at the Washington Animal Rescue League, and then adjusting to a new home in a strange country. More of her story is on the first few pictures.
