This is Sam, our [almost] two-year old sable and white Papillon. Sam is also our miracle dog! When he first came into our lives, he was sickly and non-responsive. Pictures of him as a young puppy are sad to look at. He was suffering from protein deficiency and my stepdaughter nursed him back to health. We later found out that his littermate had died as a young puppy. Today Sam is a healthy, friendly dog with a beautiful coat of fur and ears that betray his emotion.
