Parro Family

Sam's Story

Sam is a very beautiful 4 year old boy. He is very blonde. He has a delightful personality. Right away even though he had never been around cats, he walked up to them and tried to suck up to them. He was very gentle. He is also very good with my other dogs, both my boy and my two girls. He is a very calm dog and quite affectionate. He is good with small children....lots of them at once!! <g> His current owner is now pregnant with their 6th child...This boy has the patience of Job! His current owner rescued him from someone who basically sold her a "bill of goods" down-playing his skin issues. At the time she adopted him he was on medication that was holding the issues at bay although not curing them. When they adopted him, they were totally in the dark as to how sick and in pain he truly was. His current family is very loving and cares deeply for him but has realized that his issues are so serious that they are not able to help him. I appreciated their honesty and admission to their limitations. They have done the best they could based on their circumstances.

Sam will not actually be up for adoption until we know what is wrong with him, have a handle on his illness, and have him in a much healthier condition. This may take some time and certainly will be costly. I will not place a dog until they are in a much healthier place and hopefully cured... But at least on the road to good health. I will not unnecessarily burden another trusting soul. Sam will be in a far better place health-wise before a new home is considered. Until that time, he will be staying with me personally. I will be very proactive regarding his diagnosis and recovery.
In the meantime we will gladly accept any donations that will help us get Sam to good health again. I will keep everyone updated on his progress.
Hug and cherish your dogs! 


I just found out that after diagnosing Sam and getting him back in good health, he has found his forever home!  Woo-Hoo!  I am so glad that this beautiful boy has a chance to be with a new family who will love him and keep him healthy!  -web designer
