SAMSON 5 yrs Mastiff mix 93 lbs
Samsom is lazy giant who is a smart, clever, confident, social & affectionate big companion. He livens up fast when a stuff dog toy, car ride or walk is offered. He has been great with kids, (due to his size, no small children), women, men and dogs. He takes treats oh so gently. He currently lives with 5 other large dogs and 2 parrots. Samson is good with female dogs in his home but is very selective when it comes to msle dogs. Samson likes to follow you from room to room find a comfy place to lay and hang out with you. He does enjoy alone time too and goes outside through the doggy door too explore by himself. He is crate trained and house trained with or without a doggy door. Mastiff have a reputation of not doing well being confinded. This is true with Sammy. He is no longer crated while his foster home is not home. He is the only dog in his foster home that is not crated while their foster mom is away. Samson is a perfect house guest. He has not had any accidents and has not chewed or destroyed anything. Samson sits, lays down and stays on command. Samson enjoys getting on the 1st step of his foster mom's pool. Big bonus-Samson doesn't mind going outside to potty in the rain!
RESCUE STORY - Samson was adopted from the Arlington Animal Shelter in 2013. This family surrendered him back to the Arlington Animal Shelter on 3/21/17 along with his bff (who was adopted from the shelter) after his owner divorced and moved into a apartment that did not allow big dogs. He was then adopted from the shelter, but the dogs in the home did not like Samson and tried to attack him, so he was surrendered to his foster mom. He should be around 115 lbs, while at the a Arlington Animal Shelter he weighed 83 lbs. His owner says Samson appetite significantly decreased when her husband moved out of the house, who Samson was very bonded with. Now that he is in a foster home, he is eating 4-6 cups of food a day and is gaining weight. His appetite varies.
