My story

Friends to the Forlorn


Name: Sampson
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
Gender: Male
Estimated Age: 3 years
Size: 50 lbs
Location: Woodstock, GA


Sampson ended up at Fulton Country Animal Control. We are not sure what his story was, but we know that one of our amazing fosters stepped up for him and he got his Freedom Ride out of the shelter on 12/20/21.

Sampson is your perfect side-kick! He loves car rides and is a great walking buddy in his foster home. He is a medium energy guy that is already crate trained and housebroken. He is a smart dog that is food motivated, so learning new things is so easy! He already knows sit, shake, and down. His favorite activities include snuggling, traveling, walking, and just being close to his people. He is great with dogs, but please no cats in the home. Sampson has an excellent temperament and personality.  He has done wonderful in his foster home and he is going to make a great addition to a family.  He lives with small children and does great with them too!  Sampson also loves toys and will entertain himself for hours with a plain and simple Kong, or other tough/strong toys.  He never meets a stranger and is always gentle when he greets you. His foster family loves when he “talks” if he wants something and says he is such a wonderful boy that just wants to be by your side.  Someone is going to scoop this beautiful brindle boy up soon!

Sampson is neutered, current on vaccines, dewormed, heartworm tested negative and microchipped.  He is on monthly heartworm, flea and tick preventative.  He is eating Nutrisource Grain Free Lamb & Pea dry dog food.  His adoption fee is $300.  If you are interested in meeting Sampson to see if he is a good fit for your family, please complete an online Adoption Application at If you have any questions, please email

More about this rescue

Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue is a 501 c 3 no-kill, charitable organization dedicated to the care of homeless, unwanted, abused, and neglected pitbulls, particularly those who are considered hard to place or with special needs. All dogs under our care are provided with food, shelter, veterinary care, as well as basic house-training and obedience until placement is found. We will try to match the dog and appropriate, loving, and permanent home based on the dog's temperament & personality evaluation as well as the prospective home's vet & home check. Veterinary care provided will ensure that the dog is in general good health, up-to-date on vaccinations, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Additionally,"Friends to the Forlorn" Pitbull Rescue Inc. takes pride in educating the public in the importance of proper and responsible pitbull ownership, spaying & neutering, as well as the humane care and treatment of all animals.
