Rescue Dog Comforts His Injured Friend Who Has Been Through Hard Times Just Like Him

Simon, a border collie recovering from his injuries, came towards Sammie, a 4-month-old boxer mix, and carefully rested his paw on Sammie’s. Even though both dogs wererescued weeks apart, it looked as if Simon knew exactly what Sammie was going through on a surgery table at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.

“They met at the vet and Simon was immediately drawn to Sammie,” Jackie O’Sullivan, said co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. “He is protective over him.” Sammie has been through hell. The poor pooch was not only spray-painted, he was shot in the head and dragged by a car. Simon is checking on his little friend all the time. Though Simon will recover and be available for adoption soon, Sammie still has a long way to go.

“We are not sure yet [if Sammie will be able to recover fully] because he just had surgery,” explained O’Sullivan. “The vet needs 2 weeks to see if his leg can be saved. Infection is the biggest worry. He is at risk of losing 1 or 2 legs, but we are doing everything to save them.” If you want to help Sammie recover, you can donate to the rescue here.

SIMON DOESN’T LEAVE THE SIDE OF 4-MONTH-OLD SAMMIE WHO SUFFERED ABUSE JUST LIKE HIM.
