Critter Chronicles: Sampson


Looking for foster or permanent home. A foster home must be approved. Sampson was saved from a kill shelter in southern Ohio. Looking to find a place to live out the rest of his years in comfort. He is currently in a foster home, but, one of the dogs does not like him being there. He is not neutered. He is a very easy keeper. Gets along with other dogs, but, recommend other calm, balanced dogs. Too interested in cats, might be best in a home without any. Loves to go for daily walks. Loves to chase squirrels. Loves his comfy sheepskin bed. He is a healthy eater, and currently on liquid glucosamine for his old bones, and fish oil, for heart and skin health. He likes to chew on bully sticks.

Sampson displays timidness when hugs and kisses are attempted. Seems skittish going down enclosed stairs. He is showing enthusiasm when his foster mom comes home daily. Runs to greet her. He gets silly outside when the pack he lives with starts wrestling and he kind of wants to join in, but, maybe too aggressive for him.

He listens well (if you speak loud, LOL) and comes when called. He would do best in a home where he can be let out numerous times during the day to potty. For more info, contact
