This post has been revised to show the clip from Dr. Phil and with a new photo just moments after Shaggy and Sampson were adopted this morning, enjoy!
Dr. Phil did a show where he confronts animal abusers - a must see for anyone who supports animal rights. Near the end of the show, Dr. Phil highlights animal rescue and promoting adoption. Paris Hilton walked out on stage with you-know-who! That's right, our gorgeous bonded pair of boys, Shaggy and Sampson. As it turns out, since the taping of the show, Shaggy and Sampson found a lovely pair of adopters who went through great efforts to adopt them. The adoption became official just hours before the show airs. But that's okay, we are hoping that the boys will enjoy their fifteen seconds of fame and that perhaps anyone who visits our website looking to adopt them, might consider our other bonded pair of dogs, Ernie and Bert? There is no shortage of really nice dogs that need homes!
We want to thank Dr. Phil and his staff for inviting Shaggy and Sampson to appear and even more importantly, for promoting animal rescue and telling his audience how rewarding it can be to adopt a rescued dog (we love his dog, Maggie, so cute!). Also, thank you so much to Suzanne from Trinkets and Treasures in Studio City, for all that she has done for Shaggy and Sampson. She has been integral in helping to spread the word that they needed to find a home together. And now Suzanne's hard work has paid off. We could not be happier for Shaggy and Sampson. Below is a picture taken moments after their adoption today. Their new mom and dad, their new doggie grandma, their grandma's cousin, Suzanne, Rena their foster mom, Brenda their dog walking friend and Victoria their dog walking friend (not all in that order). These dogs are SO loved by so many people!
For anyone whom may not have known Shaggy and Sampson's story, here is a video below that will tell you why they have meant so much to so many people. You will understand why we really wanted them to find the best home ever, that would keep them together as a pair. Grab your kleenex wiggle butt lovers, because now that you know the story ends happily, some wet stuff might start rolling down your face. This is for you John . . . this is for you.
