Hi, I’m Sampson, but my friends call me Sam or Sammie. I’m a 4 year old Shepherd/Husky mix who needs a new home and family. My family lost their home and couldn’t take me where they moved. They had left me at the old house and were just coming to feed me when this nice lady, who has helped a lot of other pups find homes, said she’d help me find a new family. I’m so glad she did because my family was going to take me to the shelter and I was pretty stressed out then from having been all by myself for so long. The lady said something about how she didn’t think I would have made it out. I don’t know what that means but it didn’t sound good. She’s promised to find me a family that will be forever this time. Whew! I’m much more relaxed now.
I LOVE everyone! I love grownups and kids, cats and dogs, I’m even ok with ducks and chickens. I used to live with an 8 year old and 2 cats and they were the boss of me. I do have one obsession though – SQUIRRELS!!!! At my old house, I learned to jump our fence to go see the dogs next door to play, so the nice lady said I HAVE to have a 6 foot fenced yard at my new home. She said it’s important to be good neighbors and since I am squirrel obsessed and know how to jump a regular fence, this is for my safety and to be neighborly. I said, maybe the neighbors would like me visiting but she said no.
Just in case you want to know, I’m house-trained, crate-trained, up-to-date on my shots, heartworm negative and on preventative, neutered and microchipped. The nice lady also said I’m super sweet, kind of silly, laid back and very smart. She thinks I’m handsome too.
The nice lady said the best family for me would be an active family, who at least initially wouldn’t be gone long hours so that I could build trust and not worry that they were leaving me like my old family. They’d also have to be OK with 70lb lapdog snuggles. I love snuggles as much as I’m obsessed with squirrels. I really miss being a part of a family.
If you’d like to make me a part of your wonderful family or just have more questions, the contact info is below. Please forever family, come get me soon! Can’t wait to meet you!! Love, Sam
NOTE: One of our volunteers, Anne-Marie, took responsibility(legal ownership from original owner) for Sampson. She took care of all of his vetting and will handle his adoption just as the rescue would with a vet check, home check and introductions to any current animals to make sure it’s the best fit for Sampson and the family. She can be reached directly: call/text: 313 530-9490 or email: Thanks

About Providing for Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Providing for Paws goal is to help keep animals out of shelters and rescues and stay in their family homes, by providing food for family pets when in need. As well as lessen the homeless pet population by requiring all animals in the home to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated through Providing for Paws. Although no one will EVER be turned down for food assistance with or without spaying or neutering their pet. We ask that once the family is financially stable, to donate back to us for the next animal in need. Occasionally we are in the position to be able to help an animal with rescue. We do have animals available for adoption.
