Sammy and Sophie’s Story
Meet Sammy and Sophie, two beautiful 15-year-old Staffies who sadly came into our care extremely emaciated and needing urgent medical assistance. They are the most emaciated dogs we have ever seen. Sammy and Sophie’s owner sadly passed away, and the pair were unknowingly in the property for three weeks – fending for their lives alone and scared. The siblings were picked up by the local dog warden service and were rushed to the vets. As you can see from these pictures, they are in a very poor state and Sophie is blind. To help this lovely pair recover from their ordeal and gain strength we placed them in a lovely foster home to get lots of TLC .
Heartbreakingly, Sammy has now taken a turn for the worst. He has not eaten for over 48 hours, and has become very weak. Therefore he is now back at the veterinary centre for intensive medical care. Understandably, Sophie is missing her brother but is doing well in her foster home and is loving lots of Staffie cuddles. Both dogs are going to need further extensive medical care, as well as potential palliative care for the rest of their days.
25/11 – Update on Sammy and Sophie
Sammy’s health sadly deteriorated rapidly over the weekend, he wasn’t eating and was very weak. We took him back to the vets, where they removed three blockages in his digestive tract during emergency surgery. Sammy is now doing much better, is eating and walking well, and has returned to his foster carer to be with Sophie – who was very excited to be with her brother. Both Sammy and Sophie are doing very well and are so happy to be back together. We’d like to thank everyone who has already donated towards the care of Sammy and Sophie, and other dogs in our care ❤️
