Sam's Story...
Say hello to Sam. Sam is quite a nice dog. Of course he is, he’s a pittie mix! He’s somewhere between 1 & 2 years old and about 60 pounds of stocky love. Sam was found wandering the streets of Philadelphia but is now safe as a guest at ACCT.

Sam is a curious guy. He loves to sniff around new areas to find out what’s there or who’s been there. Get him out walking at a good clip, and he’s a bouncy happy fellow who aims to please. He’s a pretty relaxed guy, walks well with an easy-harness, and could care less about your fumbling about him to put in on – he’s very patient that way. On his walks, he likes the company of other dogs, so he might be a good candidate as a second dog!

Sam's ideal family will be one who will allow Sam time to adjust to his new environment, giving him time to decompress after living on the streets and in the shelter. Please consider adding Sam to your family, he’s a beautiful dog who deserves a family that will love him forever.

Sam is part of the Pen Pal Program at ACCT and has TWO volunteers dedicated to finding him a great home or foster. His Pen Pals also spend quality time with him trying to keep him as stress free as possible while living in the shelter. Sam's Pen Pals also work on teaching him to be the best dog he can be, socializing him, teaching him some basic commands and giving him plenty of snuggles. If you have any questions about Sam or adopting from ACCT, please email his pen pals: larakelly@comcast.net or katherine.ACCT@gmail.com

Act quickly to adopt Sam. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sam, a Philadelphia Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
