Sampson was rescued in the Dominican Republic after being an ‘island dog.’ He's officially listed as a Black Mouth Cur, and has some Rhodesian Ridgeback and Lab in his mix. He is about 2-3 years old. Sampson is super-friendly, smart, knows several commands, is housebroken, and just a big lovable lug. He isn’t a fan of strangers initially, but warms up quickly after he is introduced to new people. He’s currently in training to get over this slight issue. He loves a big yard to run in, preferably with a dog his size or larger to play with. He’s also a big fan of toys as well as sleeping – he’s a cuddlebug. Sampson is a great dog for just about any family.
