Hi, I'm Sam! My foster mom calls me sweet and gorgeous. I'm a 7 year old neutered male that weighs about 85 pounds. I'm very active for my age and love to go on walks or runs. I also like to have a job and put my all into everything. I'm housebroken and crate trained and love everyone. I do a good job meeting strangers while on a walk and at home but like to chase people on bicycles. My foster mom says I probably shouldn't be around kids under 12 because I get really excited and can be mouthy. I love my two calm male German Shepherd foster brothers though. One of them is playful and the other one likes to herd. I like cats a little too much to be considered cat-safe, but I'm fine with chickens as long as they are behind a secure chicken run.
Did I mention that I love to play? Toys are my favorite!! My mommy even says I'm obedient because I know basic commands like sit, come and stay. I even walk on a leash decently, run next to a golf cart beautifully, don't resource guard, take food carefully from a hand, etc. I'm also trusted to roam the house freely with my foster brothers when my foster mom is not home.
I think I would do best in a calm home environment without a lot of activity as the overstimulation can make me anxious. Please consider me as your furever companion. I will give you my absolute all. I long to bond closely with my own person. My foster mom will tell you that I am her shadow and I like cuddling. I will give you my whole heart with enthusiasm.
I am being fostered near Fayetteville, NC. If you are interested in adopting me, please contact your adoption coordinator, or fill out an application at www.southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com. You MUST live in NC, VA or MD to adopt me.
