I have no blankets or toys. My smooth fur gets crumpled and worn from pressing my body up against the hard bars to keep away from the mess that’s left behind.
I’m a laboratory research dog.
I don’t have a name.
I’m trapped and scared.
We not only adopted a dog, but a dog’s life that ultimately helped countless humans. We thanked Sammy daily for his service to the bio-medical community. After sacrificing seven years to science, he enjoyed eleven years of unconditional love.
Sammy was a remarkable dog that taught many people the importance of gratitude, kindness and perseverance ……….
I hope Sammy’s story inspires you too!
A portion of the proceeds of “Blessed” will be donated to laboratory-dog rescue organizations.
