Sammi was dumped at a shelter by her previous owner who said she was the “family” pet. My guess is she would disagree with that statement, since it was obvious she had been shown little attention or affection. The only thing Sammi had been allowed to do was have a couple litters of puppies even though she was still pretty much a pup herself. Needless to say, her prior life was definitely nothing to write home about.

Fast forward a few months and Sammi isn’t even the same dog. She knows sit and down, and is getting much better at stay. She’s completely housebroken (no accidents), sleeps all night in her crate, stays baby-gated in the kitchen during the day with my dog and hasn’t chewed up or torn up anything except toys.  My 6 yr. old grandson fell in love with her and her him so I can say without a doubt she’s good with kids. She gets along great with my dog and they love to play, inside and out. The only thing I would add here is she’s all over my dog all the time, so if you have a dog that doesn’t take to that, Sammi isn’t the dog for you. She is also one happy little girl and quite capable of entertaining herself (see video).

Sammi would do best in a home with a yard where she is able to run off some energy, but an active apartment dweller would probably do fine with her as well. Having another furry friend would be a bonus, as would kids, but those definitely are not requirements. She would also need someone who is patient and with her. It takes her a bit to warm up to someone new, but once she does, she's Velcro!

This bio doesn’t do Sammi justice, but you’ll have to trust me when I say she is about the sweetest dog I’ve ever been around, and given what her past must have looked like, that is saying a lot! She deserves nothing but the good life going forward, so if you think you’re the one to provide that, please complete an application and thank you for adopting instead of shopping!!





The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
