Update on Sammy

Josh Cromer, Sammy, Jason King
As most of you know, Sammy was rescued a little over a week ago.  He was found lying in a field in northern Henderson County.  He appeared to have been used as a bait dog for dog fighting based on the injuries he had sustained. Since then, he has been on the road to recovery and is now in a new home and awaiting further medical treatment.  The outpouring of support Sammy has received from all over the world has been amazing.  Thank you all for keeping him in your prayers and sending along your thoughts and best wishes.  Raising awareness of animal cruelty, abuse, neglect, and fighting is critical to reducing these problems and making our community as safer place for everyone to live.

Sammy is, as we speak, being prepped for surgery on his left eye. They "think" they can save the eye, and hopefully keep the ability to see light and dark (shadows). They also said the right eye was damaged but they feel with medical treatment, can make a full recovery. The person who has him says he has been out on walks, and LOVES to go on walks, but gets tired very quickly. This is GREAT news.. We're happy to see that he is striving to make a comeback, for all the dogs that have been put in his situation in the past..
Sammy the day he came in.
