Facts about Sammy

  • Breed: Pointer/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Sammy was in desperate need of rescue at the East Valley Shelter

His left eye was swollen to five times the normal size and he could not close his eye and he was in horrible pain. We are NOT posting that picture...it is pretty horrifying.

So we got him, took him to the vet and had the eye removed - no choice. He had severe glaucoma and ocular trauma.

Sammy is now pain free and one of the happiest dogs on the planet. Since he couldn't see out of the damaged eye, he isn't bothered at all by the surgery.

He's about a year old and does need some training. He walks nicely on a leash once you get going but you know how these youngsters are.....very enthusiastic about going on outings.

Sammy loves people...he is quite the snuggler. He is good with other dogs but needs to tone it down a bit....like we said....he's very enthusiastic.

This guy will bring joy to you life. He's a good kid.

“TheAdopt-A-Pet system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.”

Our Adoption Process...

If you find an animal that you are interested in, we do require that you fill out an adoption application. A home check will be done and we ask that all members of the family, animal and human, be present when we bring the new animal to your home. An adoption contract is then signed and a minimum donation is requested. Adoption donation is $300

Please note filling out an application does not guarantee an adoption. Please note we only adopt to Southern California. No out of state adoptions.
