Wow! Thanks for sharing Sammi's story with us Barb. What incredible work they did to get him from his original state to actually running around. His Mom sure was happy. :)

I am overjoyed to see how Sammi progressed with all the physio and enthusiasm of those helping him. There are so many other animals who could benefit from such care and attention. There is a video close to Sammi's entitled "The Saddest Thing" showing a small dog pulling herself along a highway by her front legs. The sides of the road look strewn with garbage. I don't know if the person who videod her did anything more than film her. How I wish all these dear animals could find people to take them in and give them a good life.

what an inspirational story, and also the owner what she gives back to her fuzzy friend, animals recover faster than human, because they do strive more when a lot of tlc is involved, and never giving up on them.
