After the kids ran off, his rescuer was able to approach Sammy, and took him to a shelter. The shelter then transported him to The Netherlands, so he could find his forever homesammy-2
When Sammy’s mom saw him online, it was love at first sight! He initially had severe abandonment issues, but with love and patience, he overcame them. Now 9 years old, Sammy is happy and carefree with his amazing mom! She can’t imagine her life without him.
