Doctors at the Red Bank Veterinary Hospital report slow progress in the recovery of Sammy, an abused Cocker Spaniel brought to the hospital on Thursday by a couple that turned out to be his owner.

In a post Monday afternoon on its Facebook page the hospital reports that Sammy is eating food when offered. However, “he has yet to stand on his own without support,” and it could take some time. Sammy seems to be experiencing less discomfort in his feet.”

Earlier, the hospital posted that “(Sammy) is tolerating his syringe feedings and antibiotic therapy, and is now able to hold his head up for short periods of time. The doctors and technicians are monitoring him very closely to make sure that he receives pain medication if he shows even the smallest sign of discomfort.”

Supporters have inundated the hospital with offers to adopt Samuari (Sammy for short) and cards. “Keep up the fight Sammy! Slowly you will gain your strength to overcome this . We are all rooting and praying for both you and your dedicated staff at Red Bank. Stay strong little guy!,” posted a supporter on the hospital’s Facebook page.

A fund has been established to help care for Sammy according to the Jersey Shore Hurricane News Facebook page. Donations may be sent to Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, 197 Hance Avenue, Tinton Falls, NJ 07724. Be sure to note that your donation is for the Morgan/Samurai Fund.

 

 

Sammy was brought to the hospital by Keith Morgan and his wife Shauna on Thursday, claiming they had watched a car put a bag with Sammy inside along Belmar Boulevard in Brick.

Further investigation by Victor “Buddy” Amato, chief humane law enforcement officer for MSPCA, revealed the dog, which was covered in waste, was actually owned by the Morgans, leading to their arrest on charges of animal cruelty and filing a false report.
