• Animal ID#: A303633
  • Dog Name: Sammy
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 1.5 years
  • This big boy is the most lovely and gentle dog ever. We all love him! He’s absolutely terrified in the shelter environment, but perks up when he sees other dogs. He’s been in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. He’s extremely submissive with people, but wags his tail when you sweet talk him. In a loving home with plenty of TLC, he’ll flourish and make a wonderful pet!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
