The touching friendship story of two ladder dogs who are always close by to comfort each other warms the hearts of readers.
As an example of this boundless compassion and empathy, Sammie, a four-month-old boxer mix, was admitted to an animal shelter. Sammie was in poor health and terrified of his new surroundings until Simon came into his room to calm him down.
“Sammie was terrified and bewildered when she first arrived at the shelter. Who could blame him? They spray-painted him, shot him in the head, and dragged him behind their car. “My stomach hurts reading these stories.”
However, shortly after his arrival, another abused dog named Simon seemed to recognize his need for a companion. Without being asked, Simon walked into Sammie’s room and lightly rested his paw against Sammie’s. If this image doesn’t make you cry, I’m not sure what will.
Simon no longer abandons Sammie. They have become friends and seem to have a special connection.
Even though they were rescued weeks apart, the two dogs appear to be aware that they came from similar circumstances.
This little one desperately needs love and care. How could you do something so atrocious to this sweet little face?
According to Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, while Simon will be available for adoption soon, Sammie’s recovery will take some time. “Animal compassion and understanding are beyond my reach,” she told her friends. That’s something I completely agree with.
We’ll never know how Simon knew Sammie needed a friend at that moment. Fortunately, he was conscious and could help Sammie in a way no human could. This little guy needs all the help he can get, so help us in any way he can.
