Ohhhh, that just breaks my heart. Sammy still cringes sometimes if one of the kids makes a loud sound. Poor babies, it's hard to believe that someone could treat them like that. Awww, I have a hunch that Cody is going to really love his toys if he has a favorite ducky already. We'll just keep hoping & praying that his follow up HW tests come back negative also. In your area is it almost unheard of for a dog to be HW neg. w/o HW preventative? If so, it's almost impossible to believe that someone that could starve, beat & dump him would give him HW meds, isn't it? I wonder if he came from somewhere else & was dumped? These are probably questions that will never have answers.
I sure wish that I had more info about Sammy, too.
