What is your name:Sampson!
Are you a girl or a boy: I am 100% little boy
How old are you: about 1, still a pup
What breed are you: not sure?, cattle dog mix/adorably handsome
How much do you weigh: about 40lbs
What do you look like: My ears could take flight! One is almost always standing straight up. I am a perfect medium size pup, not too big or too small. My arms, legs and tummy have the cutest spots on them. 🥰
What do you like to eat: I enjoy puppy food, dog treats bone 🍖 and frozen peanut butter.
I might put some other stuff in my mouth too 👞 but that’s neither here nor there, I am a puppy what do you expect.
What kind of personality do you have: Fun, affectionate, energetic. 🧨 , is bouncy a personality trait? I love to play, I can entertain myself but would sure love to have my people to play with.
Describe your perfect day: I’d prefer to eat my breakfast and see where the next party is at. I can run around the house, the yard, roll around on the couch until you rub my stomach or just sit and stare at you longingly.
Do you have a favorite toy: Yes, all of them.
Do you know any tricks: I can sit and sometimes will shake a paw, foster mom says I am smart and once I am settled into a home have potential of learning lots of things. I am a smart 🍪 .
What scares you: Not much, the vacuum annoys 🙄 me but it doesn’t scare me. That’s one of those things I want to eat but am not supposed to I guess. I just tell it who is boss. ✋
Have you been around children, do you like them: I haven’t been around a lot of kids. My energy level would be much better suited for bigger kids. Though I will grow up and learn, right now I am sort of rough and tumble w/ my play time. Still learning the difference between playing with people and dogs.
Do you like cats? Cats and squirrels are not my jam. 🛑 🐱
How do you feel about other dogs: I feel excited! I love to pester my foster brother Squish, he is super patient and ignores me so eventually I leave him alone and we just chill. If a dog can accept my playful attitude I will do well. Dogs that are impatient or easily annoyed, don’t want to play….hard pass.
How is your health: After a few weeks of recovery from being hit by a car, I am in good health! ⭐️ We will see how I progress but due to an injury to my snout I may not become a long distance runner especially in the heat. But I do enjoy a good cool weather trot! 🐕
So far nothing seems to bother me though.
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion: I have a foster mom and dad who I love but mom gives me a little more belly rubs so she wins. There are two boy dogs and a girl dog in the house.
Some of them are grouchy old things so I hang w/ Squish, he is a chill dude who doesn’t mind me poking at him to play.
Where do you hangout when home alone? I am crate trained so I can hang in there while you are out or at work.
I haven’t been destructive when left out short periods either but one day the toilet paper was causing some issues so I showed it what’s up. 🧻 🧸
Where do you sleep: In my crate, its my cozy den. 💤 😴
Do you like walking on leash: As a matter of fact I do, it gives me the opportunity to smell every single thing I see. 👀 💦
Do you have any not so great habits: I am still a bit mouthy and learning not to jump on people when I am excited. If you stay calm and ignore me I can take a hint or if you bribe me to sit w/ a treat I totally will. Foster mom sprays me with a water bottle sometimes when I jump. Believe me I am learning fast!
Are you house trained: For the most part yes, I only had an accident or two at my new place, which is pretty good. Also, I have never done a number two in the house. Consider yourself lucky 🍀
Do you like water: 💧 A little unsure but will dip my toes in the kiddy pool and chase the yard hose.
What do you like most about your foster family: They did what was best for me and kept me crated while I healed and didn’t mind me signing tunes 🎶 to them. I don’t howl often but when I do it is quite spectacular.
They have been patient with me being a little behind in being a grown up boy and learning proper in-house etiquette. Apparently bouncing of the walls or shot out of a cannon is frowned upon. 🤡
What I love about them is they love me, I have food, and a nice yard to play in.
What was your life like before being brought to NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I was hit by a car and brought to the shelter, my side was open and my upper jaw separated from my nasal cavity. But the past is the past and I am healthy and excited to put it behind me. To new beginnings!
