Sam was near death when he arrived in rescue a few days before Christmas 1998

Responding to a "free to good home" ad in the local paper, we were shocked at Sam’s condition and rushed him for emergency vet care. Malnourished, matted, infested with fleas, underweight, barely able to stand; Sam's immediate trust in his rescuer was recognized. Shaved, bathed, vetted, and feed, Sam went with his rescuer to his foster home where he dined on good food and met his family. Weeks passed as Sam grew stronger, and his new friend Romeo gained weight. Sam and Romeo became inseparable; they played together, slept together etc. But still Sam did not’t stop shaking. Finally after many visits to the vet, a series of tests and x-rays we learned Sam suffers from 3 slipped vertebrae in his neck. No one knows for sure what trauma Sam experienced; however the vet’s believe his injury to have been during a beating to the head with a heavy blunt object
