I am already neutered, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.
NOTE: HOMES WITH CHILDREN UNDER 10 YEARS OF AGE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
Meet our big Sammy boy. He is a Yorkie-Shih-Tzu mix that weighs 18 lbs. Sammy is black and tan in color and is only two years old.
Sammy came into Puppy Pals Rescue as an owner surrender by a couple who had him since a puppy. Unfortunately, once their human baby reached 6 months of age, Sammy started to show signs of aggression towards the baby and members living in the home. He didn’t want to mind. It was obvious that he was simply jealous, but due to his potential for snapping at hands/fingers… we feel that we can’t adopt him to a family with younger children.
Sammy has been neutered and all of his shots have been updated. He was heartworm and fecal tested (all results negative) and micro-chipped.
The best situation for Sammy would be to be adopted by a couple who aren’t planning on children or an older couple whose children are all grown. His prior family misses him very much. He’ll be awesome in the right home. Sammy is strong-willed and needs a strong pack leader. He’s the type of dog that needs someone who is not going to let him get away with whatever he wants.
Sammy has been a wonderful dog in his foster home. He has been great and continues to make great progress. He’s the cutest thing. He is a big teddy-bear, and likes to be the center of attention. He has been groomed twice and he was well-mannered during these visits.
Sammy gets along with the other dogs here (from seniors to puppies). He loves to run out in the yard. We feel it might be best that he go to a home with a fenced-in yard. He loves to go in the car for rides and take walks. He will need some patience in house-training. His prior owner stated he was house-broken, but he’s had accidents in his foster home. (That might be due to having other male foster dogs in the home.) If there was someone at home that could let him out every 2 hours to go potty, that would certainly help.
Adoption Donation Fee = $250.
If you have any questions, please contact Sammy's foster mom at the link found at http://puppypalsrescue.com/Dogs_Sammy1675.html. Fill out an application if you are interested in adopting him - you can find those at http://puppypalsrescue.com/Applications.html. (Email his foster home and let them know you applied so they can be sure the application is received!)
Sammy just can't wait to find a forever home! Thanks!!!
