My name is Sammy (aka, “Scampers”) and I am a delightful and adorable little guy!

History

I am the most delightful, adorable, sweet, funny, silly, loving, affectionate, and friendly little guy! I used to live in Katmandu, Nepal, on the streets (like a ton of dogs there), and life was awfully hard.

I had no idea how much harder it could get, but then I was struck by a motorbike or motorcar and became paralysed from the waist down. Oh boy, that was really rough. But when faced with challenges, you just kind of figure it out, so I learned to drag myself around pretty well using my front arms! Thankfully, a wonderful Nepal rescue group found me dragging myself … Continue reading

Why I am Looking for a New Home

I was rescued from the streets of Tucson, Arizona when I was only 1 month old. I was very skinny and scared, but was nursed back to health by Tucson Cause for Canines. When I was 6 months old, my parents moved to Tucson and adopted me as a companion for their older dog Petunia!

Petunia and I became fast friends, and have shared many exciting adventures and afternoon snuggles together. However, I occasionally feel threatened by having to share my space with my sister (maybe due … Continue reading

History

I used to have a family, and lived with other dogs, but my owners ran into hard times, couldn’t feed us very well (I was very skinny) and eventually had to surrender us to their local shelter in Kentucky. That was very sad and also very scary, because I heard a lot of people say that the shelter was overcrowded and that older dogs never get picked for adoption. I just hid my head under my paws and waited for the end to come.

But wow, how life can change on a dime! The shelter staff saw what a total sweetheart I was, and … Continue reading
