Meet Sammy, a 9 year old black Cocker Spaniel that was dumped at the shelter by his heartless family who claimed they did not have any time for him. This sweet boy was highly neglected in his previous home and came to us with one of the worst cases of fur matting we've ever seen. The shelter even reported that his ears were weighty and painful due to all the mats. Once he arrived to rescue, we quickly shaved him down and now Sammy's personality can really shine. Sammy is relaxed and playful. He's a bit fearful of large dogs but does well with all others. Because he once growled at a child in his old home when they touched his food, we are recommending an adult-only home for him. Sammy is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all his shots, and tested negative for heartworm. He will be treated to a professional dental cleaning before going to a foster or adoptive home with a new leash and collar set. After all that Sammy has been through in his lifetime, we're happy that his family gave him up because now he can finally begin the life he was always meant to have! Will it be with you?
