My story

Hello –
My name is Sampson! I hope to find my forever home. I was last a beloved companion to a wonderful senior gentleman who took me for walks daily and tended to my every need. Sadly I saw a deer and pulled out of his hands and he did have to run after me loosing me temporarily. I don’t have “street smarts” and he lived off a busy road and didn’t want to see me be a victim to traffic. Here are a few things my new owners should know about me: I am a 4 year old lab/Great Pyrenees mix, neutered male, and up to date on rabies. Sometimes I forget how big I am and can knock down a small child by accident. I can be adopted to a new home that can provide for my needs at a discounted fee. GP’s are livestock guardians and known for exploring their areas. For this reason I should have a secure yard. I am housetrained and like to have a schedule, doing best when fed in the morning, having access to plenty of fresh water and let out on a regular schedule to potty. I would prefer to be the beloved companion to someone who is primarily home based and whom I can adore, laying at your feet, and enjoying your attention and loving touch. I would make an excellent emotional support animal as I enjoy your company as much as possible. As an explorer by nature, if I smell goodies on the counter – I am tempted and can consider it a self serve. This can apply to food wrappers in the trash as well. I walk well on leash and do best in my harness. If I spot something interesting – I will pull hard. GP’s are considered gentle giants but the lab in me, wants to chase the small wildlife such as rabbits and squirrels and I often don’t know my size or strength. I enjoy going for car rides with you when the weather is moderate so I won’t get too hot or cold and will wait patiently for your return, guarding your car while you are gone. I am not a barker – but will gladly notify you when someone comes over. I hope to find the perfect, forever, happy new home where I can be your next, best forever faithful furfriend. Thank you! Much love Sampson.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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