Facts about Sam

  • Breed: Mastiff/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet Sam! He is an exuberant sweetheart looking for his loving forever home. Sam still very much has a puppy mentality and loves to bound around playfully. He is a huge fan of playing with balls but hasn't quite figured out how to drop it. Sam is a highly energetic boy who will need lots of active playtime and exercise daily. I can't overemphasize just how much energy this guy has! Sam can get a little mouthy when he is excited but with proper training this should be a correctable behavior. Since Sam is a jumpy and mouthy boy, he will need to be signed up for positive, reward-based training before he can go to his new home. These classes will not only teach him some more manners, they will also provide him with bonding time with his new people and valuable socialization. Sam has a history of chasing chickens and other small animals so he needs a home without any cats. He gets very excitable around other dogs and will do best as an only pet in his new home. Sam doesn't always know his own size and needs to live with children older than 13 or adults only. If you are looking for a goofy playmate and think Sam might be the dog for you, please come to the front to fill out an application.
