Owner surrendered shepherd to Dallas shelter because this neglect was allowed to happen

At Dallas Animal Services, a German shepherd named Sam was surrendered by his owner to receive medical care. Animal advocates agree there was no excuse for Sam’s terrible neglect; this dog’s condition didn’t get like this overnight.

Sam’s advocate tells us this boy is “a diamond in the rough.” Provide this dog with a good home, lots of love and care, and surely he will soon transform into one hunk of a German shepherd.

“Sam walks surprisingly well on leash, he a natural and he didn’t react as we walked past kenneled dogs. He’s also a champ at catching treats that are tossed to him,” a shelter volunteer stated.

As for Sam’s physical condition, he has generalized hair loss, patches of thickened skin, goopy green eyes and stinks. Sam received cytopoint and antibiotic injections and is also receiving eye medications.
