Sammy Girl is approximately an eight month old, tan, female Pitbull. She was rescued from a junk yard in Ft. Worth in October 2016 she was chained without any food, water, or shelter. However once she was brought into her new foster home she has shown nothing but a loving and playful demeanor!
Due to her past unknown treatment, her exciting and affectionate nature towards humans, including children, we found to be pleasantly surprising. But she has not been socialized with other animals, so will need a home willing to properly and safely take the steps to do so. Since being in our care, we have learned that Sammy loves to play with her squeaky stuffed animals, go on walks/jogs, play fetch, and cuddle. We’ve also learned that not only is Sammy intelligent, she’s also so eager to learn! For example, in the short time we have had her she has learned to sit, shake, and lay down with the reward of a treat.
Sammy’s currently (Nov 15) recovering from gastritis (intermittent vomiting of greater than one to two weeks caused by stomach inflammation) and is now doing much better. Due to her sensitive stomach, Sammy will need to stay on a recommended diet until her symptoms decrease as well as, potentially long term. Thankfully, this is an easy and inexpensive way to insure her health. Sammy will be spayed as soon as she is medically cleared.
If you feel your home might be the right place for such a great dog - the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!
The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Sammy Girl is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.
