Dog Rescue Stories: Samara Was Given Away When She Got Too Big

Samara Featured

Samara’s story sadly happens far too often…

Before she was Samara, she was known as Ruby. The people that bought her believed she was a Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix, and they were excited to have a small puppy in their family. As she continued to grow (bigger than a typical Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix) the family no longer wanted her. Fortunately, the family tried to rehome their dog. The Foonz family received many messages because they were known as pet lovers. But the Foonzs weren’t ready to welcome another pup into their home just yet. But…then they were sent a photo of this dog and everything changed. All the practical reasons as to why they weren’t ready for another dog seemed unimportant as they gazed into the beautiful eyes of that puppy staring at them through the computer screen.

Mrs. Foonz was the first to meet “Ruby” and she fell in love instantly.  She still remembers the moment she saw her for the first time (“this little tan puppy on the end of the lead, facing the wrong way”). It was official. “Ruby” was adopted and would be known as Samara! Mrs. Foonz then took Samara to meet Mr. Foonz, her new “dadda”, at work . Samara didn’t want to run around or play; she just wanted to snuggle, and Mr. Foonz knew he had found his best friend.

Samara was welcomed into their home by her big sister Charlie (Kelpie mix) and a big brother, Atticus (white DSH – domestic short-haired cat). She went from being thought of as a tiny, unwanted Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix to her true identity: a beloved Staffy mix named Samara, who her family cannot live without.

Things have changed at the Foonz house since adopting Samara, with 3 more unwanted souls joining the clan and making their family complete: Brooklyn (Tuxedo DMH cat), Bellatrix (Torbie DSH cat) and Prongs the failed foster (Tabby DSH kitten).
