I am Sam the German Shepherd
by Wayne, Sue & Sam
Sam had a bad start to life. He was left to guard a “grow shed” on the property behind ours.
He had no contact with people or other dogs. He went without food & water and finally contracted parvo.
We had been feeding him and giving him water through the fence (I broke out 2 panels that I could slide back in place after he was fed & fussed).
My wife & I contacted the police on numerous occasions & eventually he was taken to the vet.
Making a long story short we adopted him and have had him one year this weekend.
It had been 19 years since our last dog (a border collie spaniel retriever mix) which broke our hearts when he passed.
We dog-sat many dogs over the years, but having our own since moving to America 12 years ago was not feasible due to apartment living, job relocation etc.
We would have never thought of having a German Shepherd, but it was not our choice it was fate.
We soon moved after rescuing Sam and now we have the best dog we could ever wish for.
He was 66lbs a year ago when we first had him, now as you can see he is a healthy 89lbs & will be 3 years old next March.
He loves children, all other animals & makes us smile every single day.
Please consider Sam for your GSD of the month.
Wayne, Sue & Sam.
