TailWaggers of the week: Sammy & Carmella

Meet Sammy and Carmella, a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups.

Sammy

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you see Sammy? Probably how gorgeous he is, right? There is no doubt that Sammy has unique colorings, but he is much more than just looks.  ​ Sammy is a super smart, active 2-year-old pup who gets bored easily. When he gets bored he can get into trouble, so he needs an active home with lots of structure. Sammy knows "sit", "down", "place" and much more. He also enjoys puzzles and playing in the water! He's not overly affectionate but does tolerate head scratches and belly rubs once he gets to know you.

Sammy is housebroken and loves his crate. He walks well on a leash and is completely loyal to his people.

Sammy is up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, and weighs about 45lbs. If you're interested in adopting Sammy, please submit an application with Lucy's Hope Sanctuary & Rescue at www.lucyshoperescue.com. You can also message them on the Lucy's Hope Sanctuary & Rescue FaceBook page or send them an email at lucyshope@yahoo.com to learn more about this handsome boy.

Adoption includes a 30 to 60-day foster-to-adopt period to make sure that he's a good fit and the rescue covers all of Sammy's training and medical during this time.

Carmella

Meet Carmella! This 3-year-old girl is 45 lbs of love and muscle. Everyone she meets calls her a lovebug and is awed by the way she will sit in your lap and cuddle. ​

Carmella has gotten along with other dogs, although she does not like sharing her food and toys with them.

Carmella has come a long way in terms of manners although it is hard for her to keep them up while in boarding. When she was in foster she would sit before meals, wait before entering rooms, and she was even picking up a heel! Carmella is working on walking well on a leash, too. This compact little lady doesn't like blow dryers, has an allergy to chicken and is going to need a home without young children.

Carmella is up to date on vaccines, spayed, and microchipped. Want to adopt Carmella? Please submit an application with Lucy's Hope Sanctuary & Rescue at www.lucyshoperescue.com. You can also message them on the Lucy's Hope Sanctuary & Rescue FaceBook page or send them an email at lucyshope@yahoo.com to learn more about this adorable girl.

Adoption includes a 30 to 60-day foster-to-adopt period to make sure that she's a good fit and the rescue covers all of  Carmella's training and medical during this time.

Disclosure: Maria Coxon-Smith is the director of HardLuckHoundsAz.org, a nonprofit local dog rescue group.

Save a life

Most Tucson animal rescue groups are small, volunteer-based nonprofit organizations that rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals' lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption. If you are interested in saving a life by becoming a foster, please contact a local rescue group today.
