“Exuberance for Life” describes Sam in just 3 words.He is friendly, silly, happy and smart. Sam is a Jack Russell Terrier and Dachshund mix. Prior to his rescue, Sam lived his life on a chain, and his happy enthusiasm seems to express his gratitude at the new life he has been given. At only 1.5 years old, he’s still got lots of puppy in him. Sam’s zest for life is infectious. He loves people and is very friendly. He needs a securely fenced in back yard to safely run and play. Sam is ready for his forever family to love him.
He needs an owner willing to continue his training and who will spend a lot of time with him. He has separation anxiety and will need help and understanding. Like all JRTs he needs a little exercise, Hiking, biking, jogging, walking, and retrieving a ball are things Sam is good at!! He doesn't really have to be walked or exercised as long as you're with him he acts perfect. He certainly does love snuggling and lap sitting. Sam acts great too when going to other people's homes. He will be okay with cats and female dogs. No males. No kids.
Here's Maggie! This beautiful girl is a retriever mix -- we think maybe flat-coated retriever -- who has the shiniest softest black fur. Everybody loves to pet her! Maggie is ecstatic to go for long walks, play with other dogs, ride in the car, and chase after squeaky toys. She is 18-20 months old and about 50 pounds, and she's a smart girl who knows several commands including sit, down, watch me, and leave it. Maggie rarely barks (unless someone rings the doorbell, of course!) but lets out a super goofy noise -- 'rarr-arrr-arr-arr' kind of like a pirate :) -- when you're taking too long to get the leash ready for a walk. She loves kids and is working on not jumping when excited, but because of her size and activity level, we think she would do best in a home without small children. She is a playful, active girl who would enjoy having a fairly big yard and a companion (human or canine) who likes to play as much as she does. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. To inquire about Maggie, complete a pre-adoption application at www.caninesoulmates.com and we'll be in touch.
