PHOENIX — Sam, a two-year-old Doberman Pinscher, has gone down an extremely rough path, but is now healthy and up for adoption!

The Arizona Humane Society says Sam was rescued in September of 2019 after he was found to be “extremely emaciated with muscle atrophy, sores throughout his body and green ocular discharge.”

After being taken to AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital, Sam received medical treatment and was put on a feeding schedule for two months.

He was then taken to a foster home as he continued to recover. When he was first brought in, Sam weighed 26 pounds. He is now about 54 pounds and has recovered from hair loss and wounds.

Sam is now available for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope Campus off of 13th Avenue and Hatcher Road in Phoenix.

AHS describes Sam as, “A huge love bug whose favorite activity is to snuggle after a long day of play! AHS recommends the whole family come to meet him to ensure the perfect fit due to his high energy level.”
