Sam the Man was dumped at a home in Texarkana and luckily the lady that owns the home is an animal lover! Initially Sam was very skittish and would not let his foster approach him. He would smell her hand then back away. After getting him into the house, Sam wouldn't let anyone pet him for several days but has warmed up, however he can still be jumpy if there are sudden movements. His foster says Sam appears very smart as evidenced by speed with which he potty trained.
Sa gets along great with dogs after slow introductions. Sam's foster mom has a 3 year old son who he enjoys playing with. Sam seems to enjoy company and gets along well with all family members! His foster says he doesn't growl, and is becoming more playful as he is getting comfortable in his surroundings.
Sam's ideal family would be one who would love him and treat him as part of the family. Sam enjoys playing with children, so a family with children would be great for him. Sam might take several days or a little longer to adjust since he has bonded closely with his foster family, so a family with patience would be in Sam's best interest as well.
