My name is Sammy!
I am not good with kids and good with dogs.
Sammy is an adorable 9lb Chi-mix who was pulled from the Wise County shelter's urgent list. We've only had Sammy in foster care for a bit so are still evaluating his personality, but here's what we do know:
He's a sweet, waggy, happy little man, but is slightly afraid of quick movements. He's tolerant of his foster mom's 8 year old kiddo, but would prefer a home with no kids (calm/quiet teenagers would probably be okay, though.) We're still evaluating his opinion of other dogs and cats. Sammy will need someone who is committed to doing some training to work through his fearfulness/reactivity and build his confidence.
Sammy likes other small dogs quite a bit (both males and females) and gets along well with them, but he is intimidated by large dogs who are not very calm. We think his ideal home would be with another small dog (or no other dogs) and a person who wants a lovey lap dog.
Sammy may weigh 9 pounds, but he is a LITTLE BITTY guy. He learns very quickly and has relaxed in his foster home- he might be fun for someone who wants a tiny agility or obedience prospect! (He'd jump 4"!)
