They called her Pamela after the actress Pamela Anderson, because the two shared a prominent feature. Pamela the pup, though, had been overbred and though she had no puppies when she came to the shelter, clearly they hadn’t been weaned for long. She was a favorite of the staff and volunteers for her easy-going nature and her wide smile. Her legs were too short, her head was too big, and she and no tail at all, but she was a love bug.
When she was placed on the priority list because she was heartworm positive, I asked to foster her, but the foster program at the shelter had just been cancelled. I even called the shelter manager, but she said there was nothing she could do.
Then I heard that Lisa at Moonracer had pulled her, so I wasted no time in contacting her with the offer to foster. Lisa didn’t hesitate, and we introduced her to my household that day. It was a little touchy at first, but things soon calmed down and she got along fine with my two boxers.
We kept her for five months, through her heartworm treatment and until her forever home came along. She was adopted by a wonderful couple and lives with them and their three cats. Her new name is Sammi. We have great memories of her time with us, but we’re happy she’s found such a great life with her new family.
Here’s what her new mom says about her:
“Sammi has decided this is home. She is the ‘so spoiled dog, she’s rotten,’ says my husband. She greets everyone with a big smile and a wiggle. She loves to tag along with me wherever I go in the house or outside. She has no interest in going anywhere- unless it’s over our neighbor’s to visit their rescue dog- Boomer , who puppy sits her when we go out of town. We couldn’t ask for a friendlier, well behaved dog who loves us and we love back.”
