Biography

We don't know why but Sam's owners turned him into an animal shelter. He is a pretty low key boy with old man aches and pains, but happily living life.

Sam is not a lap dog or cuddle bug. He will tolerate sitting on his foster mom's lap for a few minutes. She has been the recipient of a kiss once and a few snuggles though. Sam loves to eat. Dog food, dog treats, meat, and cheese... no veggies or fruit. Sam has arthritis in his hips and shoulders, he cannot do stairs. He takes meds to manage pain - he would not be able to walk without them. Sam is housetrained but he does have accidents.

Sam can be vocal when he chooses. He will bark if other dogs bark or if he hears a loud noise (a cough or sneeze). But what his foster mom loves most is his "Old Man" grunting, he sounds like Arte Johnson from Laugh In. This is his way of letting us know he needs something or is unhappy with something(baths). At 15 Sam sleeps a lot but he prefers to sleep where the action is. He enjoys being part of the "Pack". He gets along with other dogs and cats in his foster home.

Sam is very happy in his foster home, and with his foster mom he will stay. Though he is not eligible for adoption, Sam is very appreciative of all his sponsors that help support his medical needs.

Sponsorship

It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog!  I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more!  The caregivers at Carolina Poodle Rescue will do the rest.  Just think, without ever having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.
