Sam is a Pit Bull that was rescued from a dog fighting raid that took 16 other dogs from horrifying conditions. Sam was a champion fighting dog who wears his trophies on his face – in the way of severe deformities. During his dreadful career, Sam was so seriously injured that he is missing part of his upper jaw completely. When the Humane Society of the United States rescued these dogs, they were happily surprised to see that, although apprehensive at first, Sam welcomed their love and attention as any dog would. Today Sam is a happy-go-lucky dog who is loved and played with, treated just like any other pet dog would be treated. He is certainly living a different life – a life that lets him be free.
Without the love and support of other dog lovers around the world, dog fighting would be a far more widespread sport and so many more dogs would suffer the cruel life that it brings. But now these rescues can take place and these dogs can be brought to new homes that will love them and treat them with the care they deserve.
