This handsome boy is Sam, ARPH # 14345, a three year old neutered blue merle male weighing in at about 45 pounds. Sam was loved by his former family, but some life changes brought him to rescue. He is housebroken, crate trained, rides well in the car, knows sit, is working on down, and is very sweet. Sam is in the moderate range of the energy scale, although he will still need regular, consistent exercise. He settles nicely in the house. He doesn’t seem to be interested in toys or chewie things in the house, but he does love a good game of “fetch the stick or small Wubba” in the yard.. He doesn’t like to give either up but will for a treat. He is VERY food motivated! Sam loves long walks. But because he wasn’t walked on leash much, he would probably benefit from a harness. Sam has a tendency to put his paws on things(table, sink, counter), so he’s a wanna be counter surfer. He will get off when told. Sam will do best in a quiet home without much coming and going, a traditionally fenced yard to keep him safe(He likes to run around.), no cats and no children under 16. Sam has never lived without another dog but might be able to be an only dog in the right home. He’d probably like a canine companion, though, but only if it’s a female. He is very willing to please, loves his person and wants to be close by at all times. Sam is fostered near Honesdale, PA. If you think you might be a good match for Sam, please contact Kay.
