Samsom is a gentle giant who is a smart, affectionate, calm, easy, submissive, confident big companion who is not only a self proclaimed professional hangout buddy but he is equally passionate about playing ball and car rides. He is great with older kids (due to his size, no small children), women, men and dogs. He really enjoys going to pet friendly events to make new friends. He currently lives with 6 other large dogs and 2 parrots. Samson likes to follow you from room to room but also enjoys alone time. He is crate and housetrained with or without a doggy door. Since his foster home has multiple dogs, Samson is crated when his foster family is not home. At night Samson sleeps where ever he wants, which is usually in his foster mom's bed. Samson sits, shacks, lays down and stays on command. His weakest command is stay. In his most recent home he is used to have a bff male canine companion, but he appears much more people motivated and would be fine as the only dog. His previous owner took him to the dog park regularly. 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 familky surrendered him back to the Arlington Animal Shelter on 3/21/17 along with his bff Maximus (still at the shelter in adoptions - Who is an awesome dog!) 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 AARF. 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 6-7 cups of food a day and is gaining weight.
