.Hi! I am Sam and the sweetest 65 pound hound dog you will ever meet. I don't know my birthday, but am guessing I am around 5. My foster mom was told about hound dogs and I have been out to prove her wrong. I do well in the crate, but don't use it much because I am great out of the crate (when left at home and at night) I am great at using the bathroom outdoors - my foster family tells me many times how much they appreciate that so I take it seriously and never go in the house! I do love to lie around, but have pep when needed. I am great on a leash. My only issue is I have to be encouraged to keep walking, but a little tug gets me going again. I am great with my foster sister, even when she tries to tell me she is in charge. I also live with 7 kids in the house (age 17 to 8 months). They love me a lot and like to give me lots of attention. My foster mom praises me on how wonderful I am with kids of all ages. As I age, I take my sleep seriously. That is the only time that I don't have as much self control and sometimes growl or snap (I don't bite). For that reason, I might do better in a house with older kids. If younger kids understand that, I love them at all other times.
The streets weren't always easy. When I came to my foster family's house, I was neutered, had 10 teeth pulled, and a BB removed from my side. I never complained and healed quickly. Then I was diagnosed with a tick disease called Elrichia. Again, they gave me medicine that made me feel so much better. My foster family calls me "Sweet Sam." I can't wait to find a forever home because I will be a loyal and loving dog for you!
I am heartworm negative and on heartworm prevention as well as flea/tick prevention. I am neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention, up to date on vaccinations, and on flea/tick prevention.
Adoption fee is $225
