Comforting A Friend In Need
At just 4-months-old, Sammie the boxer has already been through the worst times in his life. He was shot in the head, dragged behind a car and then spray painted and left for dead until he was found.
Sammie was taken into Rescue Dogs Rock New York as soon as he was found. That’s where this story takes a turn for the best. It is in the dog hospital that Sammie met Simon, a border collie, who was also rescued and was recovering from injuries. The moment in which Simon met Sammie was magical! It’s as if Simon knew that Sammie had just gone through what he did.
The empathy showed in the way they communicated with each other:
Simon walked over and put his paw on the surgery table. Since then, Simon would routinely check up on his buddy to make sure he was alright.
