Sam came to our rescue because his owner had died and the granddaughter put him in the shelter. He is 14 years old, so his chances of getting adopted from the shelter were slim to none. Our rescue felt that sweet Sam still had a lot of living to do and that someone out there was looking for a special dog just like him.
Sam is now in a foster home with multiple other dogs and does great with all of them. He is good with people as young as 7 (younger unknown), but he does startle when you wake him, so he would probably be best placed in a home with older children only.
Sam weighs 21lbs is totally, is housebroken and loves to have a fluffy bed to sleep in--he is super happy if that happens to be the human's bed!
His foster mom put him on glucosamine when she first got him and has seen a huge difference in activity levels. Sam now dances around and plays with her.
His right eye is what they call a "dry eye". This means that it does not produce enough tears and he will need lubricating drops in his eye two or three times a day to help stop infection of the eye. Sam also come with raging yeast infections in both ears. He is currently getting drops in his ears daily to get rid of the yeast. and it is getting better every day.
Sam's hearing has also improved as his ears and eye have started to get healthy. Sam loves to cuddle and ride in the car and he is just a wonderful sweet companion! A total doll!
If you are looking for a special boy, Sam could be the one for you! If you feel you may be his new person, please fill out our on-line adoption application.
