|Rescue Me ID: 13-12-06-00062SAMMY (male)|
My name is Sammy. I was found on the side of the road in a village called Lefkes on the Island of Paros in Greece. I was probably dumped somewhere by a hunter who bred because he needed another dog and left the rest to fend for themselves... I'm pretty sure my brothers and sisters didn't make it but I am strong and did whatever I could to survive, eating anything I could find, sometimes it was even bits of paper that food had once been wrapped in. I don't know how long I was alone but it must have been a long time because I was in really bad shape. One night I couldnt' go on, I was too tired and just too weak and cold so, I curled up into a ball in the grass and waited for death to come and get me... The next thing I heard was a ladies voice speaking to me softly, she was very kind to me but I still didnt trust her. She noticed my infected sores and yes, all the thousands of fleas crawling over me too, she picked me up and took me home with her. There she fed me and let me go to sleep in a nice warm room, I even had my own basket to sleep in. I was a little frightened when powder was put on me, but the itching stopped, so it must have been good for me, so I went to sleep. I was glad when the lady left because she scared me, why was she being so kind, what was she going to do to me? When I awoke the next morning I was washed and cleaned, the warm water felt so good. Now the lady could see the reality of the terrible shape I was in. She cleaned my sores and got every single on of those horrid fleas off and gave me medicine for my worms. She gave me good food and goats milk and some pink pills, I think they are for my sores. Everyone who has seen me thinks I am a pointer, and I love to be active now I am feeling a bit better, Im even starting to play a bit. They also found out that I am about 4 months old. The lady who rescued me cannot give me a permanent home, so I am looking for a forever home with a kind person who will cherish me and give me lots of space to run and play. I won't be any trouble, I am not naughty like puppies usually are, I didn't get any love or had people play with me when I was born so I am all grown up even though I am still so young. Please let me give someone all the love and devotion I have. All I need is just one person or one family to love and care for me and I will be the best and most faithful friend to them that they will ever have. When I am picked up, I melt into your arms, I love feeling safe... These are my photos from 7 days ago, you will see some more up to date ones soon.

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Greece|
Dogs can make good pets in Greece if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.
Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
