Twelve-year-old Sammy was abandoned after losing a leg. She now seeks a true forever home.
CAY HILL–She lived a dozen years moving around on four legs until a massive infection resulting from an injury left her with just three. Now, Sammy, a shih tzu, has lost more than just a leg on veterinarian Garry Swanston’s operating table. She has lost her home, because her owner does not want to deal with the perceived trials of a differently abled dog.
Saving Sammy’s leg was not an option due to the severity of the infection.
Sammy, weighing 3.5 kilos, is now a resident at St. Maarten Veterinary Clinic in Cay Hill where she awaits a true forever home with someone or, perhaps, a family who will love and care for her no matter her challenges.
She is completely healed from her surgery and does not require any other medical care as a result of it.
She is a sweet tempered indoor dog and is fully house-trained. She is in good spirits and just eager to run as fast as her remaining legs can take her and enjoy the warmth and love of family.
Potential pet parents will be screened by the clinic to ascertain their capacity to care for Sammy to eliminate the possibility of abandonment in the future.
