Meet Sammy!
Look at that face! How can you not fall in love?! This beautiful bully mix girl however has a sad story behind those soulful eyes. Her first year of life has been more than rough (caution, emotional content)…
Sammy was found nearly starved to death, very poor nutrition probably life long per vet, with an untreated/long healed broken femur. BB or pellet shots down one side— also well healed. A very tough start for a lil lady approximately 14-16 months old American bully/pit mix. She has been started on all her shots. She is heartworm negative. Started on SimparicaTrio. She is Lyme positive. Will be started on Doxy 1/26 (follow up). Boosters and leg X-ray for baseline assessment on 1/26 also. She was not housebroken. She is almost there. Her foster mamma watches her like a hawk. She is crate trained. Clean and dry ALWAYS. This young pup has endured so much in her short life & yet she is a sweetheart and loves to snuggle, snoring currently next to her angel mamma who has taught her about love and kindness & full bellies and heated towels for bedtime. Christmas presents & toys. Snuggles and human kindness, dog companions and balls. Please let there be lots of tennis balls in her Furever home. Sammy LOVES balls! She is learning to toss the ball off her nose into the air & catch it! She needs a home where she can blossom. She is so sweet. So smart. So quick to learn. Loves to run. Plays fetch like a retriever. Loves soft squeaky toys. Snuggling with the clean laundry. Zoomies in the fenced garden. She’s quickly learning this thing called peeing outside. She’s learning to walk on a leash with a harness. She is very intrigued by cats— she chases but does not appear aggressive. She has been doing really well with both resident dogs, playing and sleeping together. Everything was great for 3 weeks. Then Sammy and the resident dachshund got into a fight. It repeated a few days later. The two are now being kept separated. Sammy continues to get along wonderfully with the other dog, but we still are recommending she be the only dog as her selectivity is not fully understood.
Her foster mamma describes Sammy as the sweetest, smartest, happiest lil wiggle butt anywhere. She was approx. 30 lbs. when she arrives & has probably gained 2 pounds. Maybe more. She is looking so much healthier. All her bumps, scrapes, scars, scratches, broken nails, and bites are healing beautifully. Her eyes are shiny. Her coat is smooth and even a bit shiny. She is such a love.
We are listing Sammy as a courtesy. There is a $200 rehoming fee to help recoup some of the much needed vet care her current caregiver has provided. She will be sending her Christmas presents with her to her Furever home! And balls! Lots of balls!
