Xena was born in May 2014.
She was taken from her litter at 2 months old as she was found with all the skin missing off the back of her neck. When she returned from the vet we placed her in with Nnyane, and the two are now inseparable.
These two African Wild Dogs have gone a long way in teaching people about conservation and efforts being made to secure their future.
