German shepherd puppy found in parking lot with severely injured back legs

Sammy is an adorable four-month-old German shepherd puppy with a serious problem. On Sunday, he was found in an Atlanta, Georgia grocery store parking lot barely able to move. Apparently Sammy had been hit by a car; one leg is literally crushed and the other is broken in multiple areas. 

The local shelter immediately reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for help, and Sammy has since been rushed to a partner Georgia emergency veterinarian hospital where he has been administered intravenous fluids and pain medication.

“Sammy’s medical team is scrambling to stabilize him while our orthopedic surgeon hopes to save at least one of his back legs,” Jackie O’Sullivan, the rescue organization’s co-founder stated on the group’s Facebook page.

It is unknown if Sammy accidentally escaped from his family’s yard, however the puppy is both emaciated and dehydrated indicating he had been scrounging around trying desperately to survive. And what does a four-month-old puppy know about living on the streets? 

“We are heartbroken for Sammy, but as always, we will do our best for him,” added Jackie.

Sammy is heading via private transport on Monday to an orthopedic surgeon specializing in difficult cases. To help with Sammy’s medical expenses, donations can be made by clicking here or PayPal: Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org or mail: RDR NYC PO BOX 101 NY, NY 10028.

    Heartbreaking and Sad! Please, please give this precious puppy the best medical care and love that he desperately needs during this painful, difficult, and stressful time. Precious Sammy, you are in my heartfelt prayers for a speedy and complete recovery. I’m praying that both your legs will be saved, and heal properly. Also, I hope and pray Sammy is placed in a loving and caring home where he can live a safe, healthy and happy life. Good Luck, sweet baby, you are dearly loved. Baby Sammy, I’m praying for you. ♥️????♥️ P.S. I had a wonderful German Shepard named Sammy, he was eight years old when the Lord called him to Rainbow Bridge. My Sammy was the love of my life; 38 long years have gone by since Sammy passed and I still, to this day, lovingly think about him every single day! He was a very special sweet soul with such a big and loving heart. Sammy, I love you and miss you so much. My Beautiful Sammy, Rest In Sweet Heavenly Peace in the tender loving care of Jesus and the Angels. I’ll see you at Rainbow Bridge and I’ll bring you a yellow squeaky toy! Lots of Love, Hugs and Kisses to you, my Beautiful Sweet Sammy, and Happy Heavenly Birthday on April 11th! ♥️????????????♥️
