SAM is a 3 year old neutered black male Lab who weighs 69 pounds. Sam's owner surrendered him to the shelter with no reason given. He was surrendered with another dog. Based on the flea bites, dirt, and condition of his coat, he was most likely living outside. Sam is very sweet and friendly. He is good with other dogs. Unknown with cats. There is no history of Sam living with children so he is approved for ages 10+.

Update: Sam has completely relaxed in his foster home and now is a lover of being petted and getting ear scratches and everything else. He does not get on the furniture but loves his dog bed and hanging out there with a chew toy nearby. He did not enjoy his recent bath time but now his coat is so shiny that he looks and smells great. He is a very handsome boy. Sam would be a wonderful addition to any home as he is so gentle and relaxed

From the transporter: Sam is very friendly and rode well in the car.

Update: Sam arrived and is taking it slow in his new foster home, getting used to the whole indoor dog thing. He spent a good deal of time outside after he arrived. We left the door open and he came in and out of the back yard, stopping to sniff us on his trips inside and taking little treats very gently before heading out again. He capped off his evening by picking up one of the dog dishes and running zoomies with it out in the yard. He's super sweet but still shy of people. He is cautious around people and doesn't like too much petting right now, although he finally settled down on the floor with foster dad and received his pets very nicely. He and the resident labs are getting along famously and tomorrow we are going to see if he likes stuffed kongs. He was not a fan of peanut butter tonight so he will get yogurt and wet dog food in his kong tomorrow. He is a gorgeous dog with a big head and fluffy coat.
