Sampson, is an 6.5 year old neutered male with some pretty significant health issues that the heartland humane society just can't cover. He is incredibly sweet and loves everyone that he meets! He has met a few dogs while with us and he's done great! We know that he did live with more dogs too. I'm not sure about him with cats, he is suuuuper interested in them, not sure if it's a good or a naughty interest. He seems to enjoy people alot!
Sampson's vet check reveals the following concerns:
-extensive dental disease and work needed
-a mass in his abdomen that was hard to palpate because of his size
-He is also morbidly obese, nearly 30 pounds - His belly drags on the ground and he does need to take a few resting breaks when he's out in the yard.
-If you think you might be able to take him, or if you have any suggestions on a reputable rescue that can provide him with the care he needs, any help would be greatly appreciated!

ODR, INC. ADOPTION CRITERIA (aka Our Fine Print):
Based on 30 years of experience with rescue doxies, we have pretty strict criteria for dogs that we adopt and that we recommend to owners whose doxies we list courtesy posts for, the sole aim of which is to facilitate a successful adoption with a forever family.
*Do you work from home/stay at home/work part time?
*Have a securely fenced yard?
*We do not place same gender dogs in a home unless they were raised together, and *Children need to be 12 or older (some exceptions IF the dog is a puppy or the child has been raised with a doxie).
*We prefer non smokers and a home with no other small animals (ferrets, hamsters, etc). *Cats are on a case by case basis depending on the dog.
Remember these are rescues, many were surrendered because of these or similar issues.
