Sammy's Story
The Story of an Unadoptable Dog

Petit Pierre is … Adopted!










Petit Pierre isn’t French.

And he isn’t even a French kind of dog.

[Like Bichons are.]

But he is very “beau.”

Isn’t he?

That’s French.

(I think it is.)

At the beginning of February.

Pierre was found.

He was badly injured.

Because I think some people hurt Pierre.

And he had a bad injury to his left back leg.

Some kind people found Pierre.

And brought him to the hospital.

I am so glad they did that.

But they didn’t have enough money.

Because Pierre would need a lot of hospital things.

And that costs a lot of money.

So Mercy Pet Hospital said we can help Pierre.

If you sign Pierre over to us.

We will care for him.

And make him better.

So they did!

Pierre’s back leg was injured and infected.

So it had to be amputated.

That’s how you say cut off.

So then you have to walk on 3 legs.

But Pierre doesn’t mind.

And right away he started eating and drinking.

And wagging his tail too.

Even only on 3 legs!

If you would like to learn more.

And see all the things disabled animals can do.

You could go here: to Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sanctuary.


But then.

Poor Pierre.

He had to have even another surgery.

That’s called an operation.

And …

After that.

Then he had to have a blood transfusion too!

That’s because he needed some more red blood cells.

I don’t know why.

But I think the other ones got lost.

Or somebody took them maybe.


Pierre is very brave.

And he is coming back strong.

Mercy Pet Hospital says Pierre is a trooper.

[We say he is a right bobby dazzler too!]

And now that he is all better.

Pierre is ready to go!

Are you ready for Pierre at your house?

Because he would like to go and live with his new family.

As soon as he can.


Pierre said to tell them this about him.

He is about 3 months old.

He is sweet, loveable and plucky.

He is happy.

He is smart and clever.

Because he is learning how to do new things.

And he wants you come as soon as you can.


So if you are Pierre’s new family.

You can call the Mercy Pet Hospital to make sure he is there.

That’s in Citrus Heights California.



 Pierre goes home with some people from the hospital.

I am glad of that.



If you would like to.

You can make a donation to the hospital.

Even if Pierre doesn’t come to live with you.

Because that could help pay for all of Pierre’s care.

All of the amputation and transfusion.

And the new red cells and everything

For that you can call Mercy Pet Hospital at (916) 723-3456.

Or just go by and visit.



If you want to see Pierre.

Call first to make sure he is there that day.

And then Pierre will be there to welcome you.


Thank you kind people for rescuing Pierre.

And Thank You Mercy Pet Hospital for helping Pierre get well!

  1. I have a 3-legged Staffordshire Terrier that I adopted 10 years ago. She was abandoned with a “dead” leg, and it was amputated after I got her. I’ve been looking for another disabled dog that needs a special home, and found Pierre. I would love to come visit him, and it would be easy since I live in El Dorado Hills. Let me know if he’s still wanting a new home.

    • Hello Tricia: this is me Sammy Bourke. Thank you for coming to visit my website! You are very kind to help Pierre. There are links to the veterinary hospital where he was staying in my blog. Except this week they said he found his new family! If you would like to I think you could talk to them and find out more information about that. Thank you very much. From me Sammy.

  2. Thanks Sammy for the post! More photos of me soon. Love Pierre!

    • Thank You Pierre. How are you doing? Do you still have to wear that big white thing around your head? Please send me your new photos as quickly as you can so we can find your new family very soon. Love from Sammy.
