The world has lost one of the greatest canine teachers this past week. Sam taught us about forgiveness, renewed trust, will and unconditional love. He was one of those dogs that knocked the air out of your lungs when you heard his story and saw his injuries.
SPCAI staff first met Sam after he was rescued from a dog fighting ring in Romania. Sam was repeatedly used as a bait dog because of his gentle disposition. He was held in captivity, tied down and attacked, over and over again. When he was finally left for death and saved by a passerby, his snout had been eaten away, his front leg was severed and many other body parts were severely wounded, but nothing compared to the look of despair in his eyes.
Two years ago he had more living to do and that act made it possible to save more lives. I know we will all miss him. Rest in peace beautiful one, we will always love you and continue our work in your honor. - SPCAI Staff
