Meet Samson. This adorable pup was given to a family in a pretty sad state. He was skin and bones and full of scratches and scars. They took Samson in, fattened him up, and got him ready to move on to a new home that will promise never to treat him like he had been treated in the past. Of course we agreed to help.
Samson is a 6-month-old pittie mix boy. He is everything you can imagine--adorable, funny, playful, cuddly, affectionate, and a little naughty. Samson plays well with other dogs and has lived with cats. We can't say for sure whether he did well with them or not. We would trust Samson with children who like a bouncy, friendly puppy. We don't expect Samson to get super big. He might weigh about 25 pounds now.
We need a foster or foster-to-adopt home for this guy because he needs to get his vetting brought up to date. We can't take care of that until he is officially placed with us. He will be neutered, receive vaccine, and be microchipped. He is typical puppy in that he needs help with housebreaking (although we are impressed with his skills so far) and basic commands. He is doing pretty well in the crate now. He sometimes protests a little but quiets down after just a couple of minutes.
If you would like to be consider as a short- or long-term home for Samson or if you have any questions, please fill out the adoption application on the website below. This application is also used if you are interested in fostering Samson. His adoption fee is $175. www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting.html
