SAM = Friendly & Fun's Story...
SAM - ID# A008354

SAM is a neutered male, 46 lb. Black and Tan Basset Hound and Norwegian Elkhound Mix. The shelter thinks Sam was about 1 year old when he arrived on June 5, 2007. Sam is a great dog! and a "real looker"---just makes you smile because of his delightfully unusual breed combination. He is happy, outgoing, VERY friendly and lively, and seems to like other dogs. Sam likes exploring the play yard, sniffing all around the parameter. As he is part basset - you need a fenced yard for his protection, as he will follow his nose. He is pretty good walking on the gently leader and doesn't fight it much with it, but Sam would really thrive if his new owners will keep up his training. Read below for the training assistance we offer with all shelter dogs.

Sam was brought in from another shelter as part of our THIRD CHANCE Program. Although he is very adoptable, he may have run out of time at the other shelter. He now has a Third Chance to find his forever home because of Pet Project Foundation's pro-humane effort.

Starting the adoption process you need to be 18 years or older, complete an application http://www.petprojectfoundation.org/dogadoption.pdf, be interviewed and it is strongly recommend all members of your household and any dogs you have at home must be brought in to socialize with the dog you wish to adopt in our play yard, to make the best match for everyone, and be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. Understand we reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.

Dog adoptions are $100 and include a microchip, spay or neuter, current shots, flea treatment if required, "New Owner" folder packed full of helpful information, and one free basic health examination within 5 days of adoption from a veterinarian on our list.

Our adopted dogs come with a SPECIAL BONUS of up to $80.00 toward training expenses within 6 months of adoption. We hope to provide a smooth and lasting transition into your household. Ask for complete details at the time you adopt your new companion dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SAM = Friendly & Fun, a San Clemente Basset Hound/Norwegian Elkhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Norwegian Elkhound for sale in San Clemente, or seeking a Basset Hound/Norwegian Elkhound dog from a breeder in San Clemente.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Clemente already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Clemente breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basset Hound/Norwegian Elkhound breeders who help with Basset Hound/Norwegian Elkhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Clemente paves the way for another one to be saved.
