Hello, let me introduce myself, my name is Sampson. I sat, and sat, and sat some more, for months at Guernsey County Dog Pound, people would come in and take home all the other puppies, and dogs. You see, I am not big, but I am not little, I am not a purebred, I am a mix, I am not a puppy, I am not the right bred. These are all the things that have been said about me. I just do not understand, because I think we are all special. I was rescued finally, and I was so excited! I went to a home with a foster, she was really nice to me. I really liked her. She told me I would only be there for a little bit. You see, I am heart-worm positive. I went and saw the vet, and they did these awful treatments in July, but I started to feel better after a while. After I felt better, her cat and I decided that we didn't like each other, and so I had to leave. I have been to so many foster homes now since August, because no one can foster me long term. Oh people have offered to foster others, but, you see, its the same thing, sigh...I am too big, or too small, not the right bred, I am too young, not young enough, or too old. I am not a purebred or I am a boy, All I know is that I think I am really special and wish someone could foster me or adopt me! It makes me really sad that I do not have a family to call my own. Do you think you can help me? So many of us sit in pounds and wait and wait, then we go to a rescue and wait some more. If you can't foster me because you are too far away, please call a local rescue. There are so many dogs just like me!
Love, Sampson

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sampson, a DOVER Labrador Retriever/Weimaraner dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Weimaraner for sale in DOVER, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Weimaraner dog from a breeder in DOVER.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in DOVER 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 DOVER 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 Labrador Retriever/Weimaraner breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Weimaraner rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in DOVER paves the way for another one to be saved.
