The Story

We received one of the MOST HORRIFIC pleas to date today in our rescue lives and we've seen some REALLY bad ones as most of you know too well already!

This was it:

Desperately need your help! We have a 3-4 mth old boxer pup that was spray painted, shot in head, and drug behind a car. We were able to get him to a vet just to stabilize him. Could y'all please take him to save his life?

Sammie is a 3-4 month old puppy who has suffered the UNTHINKABLE!!!!!!! He was shot in the head, dragged behind a car AND spray painted!!! Seriously what the hell?! We are so angered by this story it's hard to find the right words. If we ALL are not outraged and angered by this story there's something seriously wrong with us.

The puppy was finally dropped at a SC shelter today as a "stray" which is very odd because the woman who dropped him seemed to know a whole lot about his story. But apparently because he's a "stray" & was "signed over" there will be no investigation.

Sammy has the bullet hole in his head which you can see in the photos. He's skin is ripped and sliced wide open from being dragged behind a vehicle and we are told the bones in at least one of his back legs are crushed. He cannot stand or walk and the suffering he has endured at the hands of evil makes us cringe to share the earth with the person or persons responsible.

His wounds are said to be 2-3 days old and the woman finally brought him to the shelter because "he wouldn't die" CAN YOU IMAGINE???!!!! If that doesn't make you want to go postal, we don't know what will.

You cannot hear a story like this without becoming just a little bit harder. How, why, there are no words to make sense of this type of sadistic evil.

Sammie will likely lose at least 1 leg and who knows what other damage will remain due to the bullet & dragging. We hope that karma will be swift & just in this case, but we know the only ones left to pick of the pieces here & help this poor innocent baby are those of us here. So we are going to once again, BEG for your help & financial support. We simply cannot take cases like this without your donations. If we didn't take him, the alternative was euthanization. We know no one reading this now would have thought that was the answer.

Sammie is en route to our SC vet partner now, so we won't have an update until tomorrow.

Please help us show baby Sammie that there is good in the world & that he is safe now. We will not stop fighting for him & we hope you won't either!

Please donate& share!!!! 

Thank you and God bless!

Sammie had his first surgeries yesterday which lasted over 3 hours!! The surgeon discovered that his back right leg actually had bone worn down from the dragging. We begged him to save the leg if at all possible & he fixed it w hardware as best as he could w a 3/4" piece of bone missing frown emoticonIt will never be 100%, but we hope it will be fixed and usable. His left front leg is also worrisome as the lacerations are deep & infected. The doctor isvery worried about infection in the bone as these injuries were 4-5 days old at time of surgery. His 2 bad legs are both splinted & we'll have to take it one day at a time. He will be getting daily bandage changes and be kept on strict cage rest for now.

As you can see, the spot on his head where Sammie was shot was also repaired & cleaned up. The vet believes he was shot w a 22 caliber rifle.

We still cannot believe a SICK EVIL person hurt this sweet baby & tried to kill him & was upset he "wouldn't die"!!!!!! At the same time we are overwhelmed by the HUGE outpouring of LOVE & support for Sammie & will focus on that. Sammie needs us, all of us, so our time & energy must be spent on getting him well. He's got a very long road back & we will be there with him every step of the way!!!

Thank you for your support! This is going to be a very expensive rescue & every dollar is appreciated!!!

sweet Sammie arrived at our Columbia, SC vet partner late yesterday. He had his initial exam & was put on IV fluids, antibiotics and pain meds. As his wounds were wrapped, they will take the bandages off today. He will have surgery today & every attempt will be made to save his badly fractured back leg. Please keep this sweet puppy in your thoughts and prayers-he needs them! Despite all his pain and suffering, he was giving the entire vet staff tail wags & kisses!
