Samuel's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Samuel's Story...
Samuel’s Story: We recently received the following email: "I’m with a humane society in rural Jackson County, Ohio, where we have no facility other than our county dog pound. A older husky was hit by a car. Lucky for him, the person who saw it happen was a good Samaritan, and she stopped, picked him up at the roadside, and took him to a vet to make sure he was OK. He had on a collar, but there were no tags. He was checked out by a vet who confirmed he didn’t suffer any injuries in the accident, and his heartworm test has come back negative. He was already neutered and we have had him vaccinated. Ads were placed in two local papers in an attempt to find the owners, but there has been no response . . . perhaps he had traveled a long way and been on the road for a long time. He is at a boarding kennel right now, but that is a temporary situation at best and if no one is found to help him, he will have to go to the pound, where he will surely be euthanized almost instantly due to his age (the vet said he's probably about 9 years old). He is a good dog. He has a great disposition and needs a place to live out the rest of his life. My heart just breaks for him because he was obviously somebody's pet at some time. I refuse to give up hope even though I have sent this plea to a number of other rescues with no response. Can you help him?"

More About Samuel: Samuel is coming into foster the week of April 10th and we will update this posting soon. I the meantime, his advocate, Diane (who wrote the letter above) and Kelly, who has kindly taken him in at the kennel, report that Samuel is a very "mellow fellow" who just wants pets and love. He has been bathed and brushed by a groomer, has had surgery to remove a benign cyst on his "back end", is being treated for corneal abrasions, and -- in good shape now after their tender care -- is getting ready to make the big move from the Ohio friends who saved his life to his foster mom in Illinois, who is offering him a chance at a new life.

Though he has that Husky tendency to think of cats as "play toys", he tested fine with other dogs. He's a little stiff (common in dogs his age) and will likely benefit from inexpensive glucosamine supplements, but this is not a rowdy dog who is going to create an uproar in anyone's home . . . he just wants a roof over his head, the love of a family where he belongs, good foot to eat, a rawhide to chew on, and a soft place to lay his head. If you have not known the special joy of the companionship of a "senior" dog, you don't know what you are missing! There is a depth of character, of "wisdom", of acceptance and stoicism and gratitude that younger dogs simply have not yet lived long enough to learn, and the look of "knowing" and love in a senior's eyes is a gift you get to re-open and celebrate with every day you share. And though Samuel is old enough to have earned the "senior" in his description, he is only 9, and Siberians live to be 12, 14, 16 and even 18 years old! He still has a lifetime of live to give that person who will appreciate and celebrate how special he is.

Updates: Coming soon!

This dog's adoption donation is $175. If you know how much it costs to give a new dog responsible vet care, you can easily see that this is quite a bargain! He has had a complete health exam, has already been neutered, is microchipped, has tested negative for heartworm, has been kept on heartworm and flea preventative, is fully vaccinated and free of parasites.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Samuel, a Various Locations Siberian Husky dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Siberian Husky for sale in Various Locations, or seeking a Siberian Husky dog from a breeder in Various Locations.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Various Locations already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Various Locations breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Siberian Husky breeders who help with Siberian Husky rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Various Locations paves the way for another one to be saved.
