Facts about Sam

  • Breed: Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Sweet, sweet Sam. I want to turn his frown upside down. He is so sad at our shelter. We rescued him from a high-kill shelter in North Georgia and feel he used to be somebody's pet but don't know his history. We do know he's a little shy but wants to be petted and loved.

He's a short and stout little guy weighing in around 24 lbs. and was born around February 2014. We can't wait to see him become part of a family again.

Sam is healthy but has a case of heartworms which we'll see him through. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from him. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Sam is taking a medication (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows he's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.
