Sammy is a Black Lab/Border Collie mix and is approximately under a year and a half old. Sammy was rescued from a very high kill shelter and was rescued in the nick of time. At the time of Sammy’s rescue, Sammy was very thin and starving. It is likely that Sammy spent most of his entire young life on the streets, never knowing the comforts of a home or an owner. He was also a bit shy and would exhibit submissive urination when approached. However, since Sammy’s rescue, those days are long gone!
Sammy is now a very happy, friendly and healthy boy! Sammy is still young and flourished quickly once safe in rescue. Sammy wakes up every morning as if it were Christmas every day! Sammy is full grown and weighs 59 pounds. Sammy is an active boy and loves to play. Sammy loves attention and loves to be anywhere that you are. Sammy loves his playtime in the yard and will run and play with his toys but when his foster mom goes inside, he is ready to follow. Sammy will need a fenced in yard but an owner who will keep Sammy indoors when away or at work. Sammy is comforted by the safety and security of being inside when you are away.
Sammy is a very affectionate and lovable boy. Sammy is both house trained and kennel trained. Sammy also now knows the commands sit, come, and go pee pee. Sammy enjoys his playtime and at moments can play with such exuberance, he may be too rough for a very small dog or small child. Sammy is at times, still a puppy at heart and gets very excited during play. In addition, Sammy also loves lying quietly with you as you watch TV or just enjoying quiet times being pet. Sammy will play if you are ready or chill and relax just as easy. Sammy also likes to quietly hang out in the kitchen as you cook. Sammy enjoys healthy snacks such as bananas and baby carrots even broccoli!
Sammy is a beautiful boy and sports a shiny black coat with white paws and white markings on his chest. His tail is black with white on the very tip. Even though Sammy is very well behaved during car rides, the car rides tend to upset his tummy. There are safe meds that Sammy can take if he needs to travel. Sammy recently got to enjoy his first Christmas when his foster mom took him with her to a family members home. Sammy enjoyed all the attention from family members and friends. He was well behaved during the hour and a half drive there. Please note: Sammy would chase cats, so a home without cats would be best. Sammy would not intend to hurt them, but would be excited to chase them! Sammy will make an excellent companion. Sammy is also microchipped!
