Uncle Sam came to us as a stray. Uncle Sam lived in the woods with his 2 sisters and 2 adult dogs before coming into our rescue. He is a timid guy that is learning that life with people, pets, and a house to live in are good things! He is learning that life is great but feels most comfortable with people near but not touching him! We hope that Uncle Sam will learn that people are not the scary things that he must have encountered in his past. Uncle Sam is comfortable with other dogs and he learns from their guidance. He is bonded with his sister Liberty. The ideal home for Uncle Sam would be one where he could have his sister with him, but he will most likely adjust to any dog as a buddy. Uncle Sam is a flight risk as he is a timid dog. His adopter will need a secure fence. Uncle Sam is house trained and knows how to use a doggy door. He loves dogs and cats. He has been around children. If you are interested in adopting Uncle Sam, please fill out an application at www.arffmo.org. You must have a secure fence!
