Her life has been tragic from the beginning. Abandoned and abused she should not have survived … but because of kind souls who rescued her, she did. And she’s a fighter. I have to say that despite her tough beginnings she is one of the most loving animals I have ever come across. If i am in a position where i can help a dog with 2 legs live a better life, I would help because the Islam I believe in allows for compassion and kindness and me taking care of a dog and me knowing how to manage my faith should have no affect on how other people deal with theirs. I won’t comment on all the abuse and slander thrown my way by some people (which is not surprising) but I will thank all those who have shown support and compassion for Marvella’s plight .. and yes, that has come from many Muslims as well. I’m a muslim, my faith is in islam, and I believe in being humane. #marvellathewonderdog #survivor Thank you @nurullainabdulhamid @dogwheelchairmalaysia

Dalam kapsyen panjang entri berkenaan, Harith juga enggan memberi komen balas netizen yang menghentam dirinya kerana perkara itu sudah dijangka sejak awal lagi. Namun, dia turut berterima kasih kepada mereka di luar sana yang memberi sokongan dan rasa simpati terhadap apa yang terjadi kepada Marvella.

“Saya akan terus membantu kerana agama Islam yang saya percaya selama ini membenarkannya atas dasar kemanusiaan dan belas kasihan. Perbuatan saya menjaga anjing ini dan cara saya menjaga dan mengurus iman saya seharusnya tidak mempengaruhi orang lain dengan cara mereka menjaga iman mereka,”

This two legged wonder-dog is named Marvela. She was rescued two years ago by @nurullainabdulhamid who (despite being advised to ‘put the animal down’) cared for her … and today she is a healthy beautiful and friendly doggy. We fell in love with Marvella when my wife @drjezaminelim came across her story online and kept saying “We need to do something for this beautiful doggy and the lady who saved her. After much discussion with Nurul we all agreed on a ‘Foster home’ arrangement where Marvella will come stay with us and we will bring her back to be with her saviour every month. So now I’m a happy daddy to 3 kids, 2 cats (one-one eyed blind) and a wonder dog. ? We promised her to care for an look after her doggy as she has. Please click on Nurul Ain’s IG to see the work her husband and her do in rescuing and rehabilitating stray animals (over 400 cats and dogs so far!!!). I have never met a more compassionate couple so committed to loving those who others abandon. Marvella is now getting used to her new environment and we will be upgrading her wheelchair (which she has outgrown) soon! #MarvelaTheWonderDog #twoleggedwonder

 Terdahulu, Harith dan isteri, Dr. Jezamine mengambil keputusan untuk membela Marvella pada 23 Jun yang lalu. Anjing tersebut yang sebelum ini telah diselamatkan oleh seorang sukarelawan 2 tahun lalu dijumpai dalam keadaan menyayat hati dan telah kehilangan dua kaki hadapan kerana didera oleh manusia yang tidak bertanggungjawab.
