WALL TOWNSHIP - Samurai “Sammy,” the badly neglected cocker spaniel discovered last week, is taking some steps in the right direction today.

Officials at the Red Bank Veterinary Hospital posted an update today on their Facebook page showing Sammy walking and eating on his own. “We are also incorporating passive range of motion and massage for his hind limbs, which is helping build strength,” the post said.

Keith E. Morgan and Shauna Ewing Morgan brought Sammy to a Tinton Falls animal shelter claiming they found him on the side of a road in Wall Township. Police later discovered that the dog was reportedly registered to the couple in 2007. They both now face several animal cruelty charges.

“We keep telling Sammy how the world is rooting for him and he continues to gain strength through all of your support and love,” the animal hospital posted on a recent update.
