You may remember Sammie as the abandoned sad, skinny diabetic pit•À%BD'•À%BD|well, she's still diabetic, but she's knocking the rest out of the park. She's gained weight (still has a ways to go but she's on the right track), is playing, and trotting along on walks with the rest of the pack. That tennis ball she has•À%BD'•À%BD| she found it on a walk and decided it was something she had to have, so she carried it all the way home. This girl doesn't give up on life. It's been challenging at times, bringing her back from almost losing her, but it's also been extremely rewarding to watch her gain her strength, and get healthy and happy. It doesn't hurt that this angel is full of love and that's really all she asks for in return. Walk into the room, you're guaranteed a tail wag•À%BD'•À%BD|sit on the sofa, and you've got a snuggle partner. She just wants to be loved, but she's also comfortable being left alone when life calls mom away. She has no separation anxiety, doesn't chew things up, is house and crate trained and does well with calm dogs that aren't overly pushy. She's currently living with 4 other dogs of all ages and sizes and does great with 3 out of 4 (#4 makes it his mission in life to harass others so you can't blame her for not being a fan). She's great with kids, and a very easy girl, with one requirement - that her mom or dad be conscientious of her diabetic needs. What that consists of is a quick prick to check her glucose levels before feeding, feeding 12 hours apart (with a snack of veggies and chicken cuz who wants to go 12 hours without eating?), followed by her insulin injection, which she's a champ about taking. She knows the routine almost as if she knows it's for her own good. She's got an amazing support team that comes with her, in the Canine Diabetes Support & Information FB group. They know her history, are very responsive, and are experts at keeping her on track (they know more than most vets when it comes to diabetes). Her foster mom isn't going anywhere either, as she's fallen head over heels for this girl, and only wants the best for Sammie and her future. The diabetic pit can be a scary label to some, but everyone who meets Sammie (including non-pit people) falls in love with her sweet demeanor. She's with A Girl's Best Friend Rescue and her foster mom, Chris, is more than happy to answer any questions since she knows Sammie best ([email protected]). Sammie didn't give up when things seemed hopeless. She's so deserving of a home that will take care of her, love her, and show her that life can be good. If you've got the time and love for an amazing girl who needs a little extra care, you'll get back so much in return.
