My Story

Date into Rescue: 10/11/19

Reason for being in rescue:  Sampson was released by his owner due to their busy lifestyle which did not allow time for a growing active puppy. He spent the majority of his days in a crate.  Sampson DOES shed.

Special Needs:  Sampson had a growth removed from his shoulder that was a calcified mass.  Our vet suspects it was a one time thing from some sort of accidental trauma event and will not reoccur. 

What kind of home would be best for me: An active home who wants a Velcro dog that is ready for any family adventure. Sampson is crate trained, enjoys carpool lines, knows basic commands and enjoys just about any activity as long as he is by your side. Sampson will require regular exercise to burn off his puppy energy. He loves to play ball, but will relax once his family settled. Puppy training would be recommended.

What is my personality like: Sampson is a happy fun loving puppy. There is not a mean bone in his 65 pound body. He will chase a ball as long as you are willing to throw it. He displays typical puppy behaviors and consistently searches for human interaction. Has the ability to walk on a leash; however, barks at most living organisms.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Sampson greets everyone with puppy excitement, at times he does bark to warn you that someone is approaching, but once approached loves everyone.

Tips and Tidbits:Sampson's exact birthdate is 1/8/19.   Note Sampson is an F1 (first generation) and he DOES shed.

House trained:  Sampson is bathroom trained to an extent. He should be crated when no one is at home until he breaks out of the puppy stage. When playing in the house he gets really excited and had a few peeing incidents. He does not go to the bathroom in his crate during the night. Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
