Sammy has a great story to tell and if only we could communicate with dogs we would love to hear the whole thing. Sammy was lost by someone and on the loose for at least a month but his wonderful foster mom was able to convince him it was safer to come home with her. Sammy is living the life now.
In the words of his foster mom: "Sammy is a big sweetheart! He loves dog walks and gives little baby kisses. He's opened up so much more. He likes to lay with me in the early mornings. He's become more outgoing, food motivated and likes to sit up on his back legs for a treat."
Sammy is a wonderful young boy with the most interesting hair ever - don't let his hair color fool you! He's not old! He simply has black wiry hair with white frosting on the tips and white markings. He gets along great with other dogs, small ones especially. He is not a Velcro dog but does love the companionship of humans. He would make a great companion for anyone that has a nice quiet home to offer him.
Let us know if you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting him. You can find the link for our online adoption application and more information about how to go about meeting/adopting him on the Adoption Process page of our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org. Or simply read on here.
All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.
Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
