To View Slideshow,
my name is Sam and I am one happy dog! Want
to know why? Just read my tailer tale!
A few weeks ago I was just another street dog. I'd been
kicked around a bit (really hard), so I limp a little.
That made it hard to find food so I got really skinny.
Just when I thought things couldn't get much worse,
another dog took exception to my face and gave me quite
a bite. My face really hurt and got all big.
I usually try and keep happy, but that bite took me low.
Just when I figured there was nothing let for me, I was
taken off the streets and then some nice ladies brought
me to a hospital. By then I was pretty sick and it
was so nice to just have a quiet place where I felt
safe. I thought this was where I might find the
Pretty soon, after lots of help from the nice people at
the hospital I started to feel so much better! My
bite mark is almost gone and my face is back to normal.
But that's not the best part. The people really
like me here!! They give me good food, treats,
lots of pets, and kisses (yeah, me getting kisses!) One
of the ladies who always visits me has promised she will
help me find my very own family who will love
me forever. I think that would be even better than
finding the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven!
The nice lady says I need to "display all my good
features" whatever that means, but here goes.
I am told I am six or seven years old. That means I'm
wise enough to appreciate a good home and a loving
family! I'm very smart 'cause I already know sit
and down (sometimes). I'm getting pretty good at
telling the people when I have to go potty. If you just
show me where I can do my business, I'll do fine.
I love to play with toys and especially chase balls.
I'm also pretty good at catching them mid-air!
I have one favor to ask of my new family and that is
they let me be the only dog. Because of that bite I
got, I really am nervous of other dogs getting too close
to my face. If you'd seen my face before it
healed, you would understand. That's about
all I can tell you. What I lack in the looks
department (I'm not just another pretty face!), I make
up for in strength of character, a Golden heart, and a
sunny personality. If you give me a chance,
I'll be the best companion you could ever hope for!
