Little Girl and Family Rescue Stray Missing Half His Face

Samuel was a stray that no one wanted. Once he was found by his Ama and her family, he found love and healing, and is a happy dog today!

The Journey of SamuelWatch how a stray’s life changed

Posted by Puspa Rani on Sunday, October 4, 2015


Poor Samuel was a stray wandering somewhere in Malaysia.  He was missing half his snout, and because of how he looked people feared and shunned him.  One person, his Ama, saw him and took pity on him.  He was rescued, and today lives with people who love him and take care of him.

At first, the rescue was slow going.  No one really knows just how Samuel ended up in the state he was in, but just looking at him speaks volumes as to why he’d be a bit afraid of people.

After a while, his rescuers gained his trust, and Samuel was rescued.  He was given proper medical treatment, and lives with a loving family.  His face has healed up, and now he can eat food like all the other dogs in the area.  He’s happy, healthy and alive, because one person took the time to care.

Sometimes, no matter how tall the mountain may look, having someone that loves you with you to make that climb makes all the difference in the world.

I think there is something poetic and powerful about tears. I want to write a post about tears, about when we let them fall, and when we don’t. Thanks for the inspiration

  2. Thank you admin for sharing the story about Sam. He is now happily living in our shelter. Ama Puspa Rani founder of MIAR rescued him last year.

  3. He’s a handsome boy, you can’t judge by looks, I’ll bet his heart is as big as her love is for him. I hate people that judge a book by its cover

  4. MIAR….in an awesome dog rescue/shelter that could use a lot of help from us animal lovers. Puspa Rani a beautiful hearted woman and her small band of helpers do amazing rescues and cares for The abused, sick and tortured dogs.
