Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Ahmed, the niece of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, adopted a mixed-breed dog after an animal rescue group shared her story on their social media.

Bubbles Rescue Group shared “Midnight’s sad story explaining she was abandoned, beaten, abused, overbred, and starved.

Representatives of Bubbles Rescue said her owner dumped Midnight after she was overbred to make profit after selling her puppies.

Sheikha Latifa put Midnight under training to overcome her fear and gain confidence.

The dog was left to fend for herself for over two years. "She got pregnant a few times, and her puppies were sold for money. However, she was never allowed back into her owner's home," explained representatives of Bubbles Pet Rescue.

"The day we went to pick her up, she did not want to leave. It was heartbreaking to see her love for a cruel human being. By the time we rescued her, we could only find four of her puppies; the rest were sold," she added.

"She lived in a miserable condition. She was fed by kind neighbours around the area but also abused and chased away by others," said Maryam Alquraishat, founder of the pet rescue group.

"Today, Midnight is under the care of our Princess of Dubai, Sheikha Latifah bint Ahmed bin Al Maktoum who opened her heart and home to her as she was not wanted after being rescued. She followed her story since day one of Midnight being rescued back in April," she added.

"She lost her foster home and was about to end up at the kennels, but after her story was shared, HH took Midnight in instantly," stated Maryam.
