Meet Sammy

Sammy is a 2 year old DSH sweet boy that had some very bad luck in life. He was shot with a BB gun which left him paralyzed for life, the bullet is locked in the spine canal and cannot be removed as it will cause more harm then good doing so.
Sammy has been seen by the best veterinarians in Florida Doctor Jim Cook his neurologist as well as his to vet surgeons Doctor Avery Bennet at Blue Pearl in Forth Lauderdale and Doctor Mark Havig at Blue Pearl in Naples. All of his doctor agree that the bullet cannot be removed and that Sammy will never walk again. :(
The bullet even though is there is not causing him any discomfort and neither pain and as you can see in his video he get around just perfect in his wheels.
Sammy is paralyzed from the waist down and due to the fact he needs to have his bladder expressed several times a day, he needs to be cleaned and bathed daily as well.
He can get frustrated when his bladder is expressed and can overreact,
He is not too thrilled when he is put in his wheelchair but it is necessary to get him moving and get his blood flowing. When he is not in his wheels strolling around he wear a diapers and moved around on his own.
We know that it tales a real angel to come through to adopt Sammy, but we also know that, that angel is out there for him. If that angel is you Sammy will like to hear from you.
He is currently located in North Port Florida, but transport can be arranged for the right home within all Florida.
