.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 $175

About Paws For Life NC An FCHS Program

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
