Our girl Sammy with our niece.Sam is a Leopard Catahoula mix rescued from a high kill shelter in Alabama.Fostered in Washington D.C. And almost two years ago she came into our house.Not long after we rescued her she became very sick she could hardly lift her head and when I took her to the vet I never thought I would see her alive again.After preforming emergency surgery they found cloth impacted in her stomach and intestines.They told me that this was bad and after removing all the material [probably from a toy we had giving her],they weren't sure she would make it.After several weeks at the vet,[we went on a scheduled vacation and thought since her stitches were still in the best thing to do was to let the vet board her so they could keep an eye on her.They even sent use updates and pictures of Sammy's progress when we were up in New Hampshire!].That was a year and a year and a half ago and as you can see she is doing great-we love her so and her and Molly are best friends.It was a lot but worth every penny.The unbelievable thing was my wife had signed them both up for insurance right before it happen,but it takes a month to kick in,so we couldn't use it!You can't write something like that.When the Vet opened her up he found a shotgun pellet in her.She is the second dog we have rescued that had pellets in them,what terrible life some of these dogs must have and it's a great feeling to rescue a dog from almost certainly a dark future,I encourage everyone to think about rescuing a dog!1-20-18
