Sammy's Story...
Sammy is a beautiful, 1 to 2 year old Shepherd-mix, with a real love of life, and a perpetually optimistic attitude. Sammy just weighed-in at a long and lanky 45 pounds and he's looking for a caring, forever home, where he can stretch his legs and soak up some love! Sammy is still new to foster care, but here's what his foster parents already have to say about this FABULOUS fellow, " Sammy is being a good boy in his foster home, getting along well with the resident female Catahoula and no longer afraid of the cat. He's also quiet and clean and dry in his crate overnight."
For more information about meeting or adopting Sammy, please contact (225) 205-9330.

You might also be able to catch Sammy at our Dog Adoption House at 8476 Highland Rd! The hours are M-F: 11:30-5pm / Sat & Sun: 11-3pm! However, be sure contact Sammy's foster home first at to make they will be there on that day.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammy, a Baton Rouge Retriever (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baton Rouge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Baton Rouge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baton Rouge paves the way for another one to be saved.
