...for his furever family to find him.
This week's featured dog is Sammy, a 10 year old Labrador Retriever who has grown up in the shelter. He's a laid back, mellow kinda guy whose official position (he's been there so long, we just had to give him a job!) is "Visitor Announcer". His job description includes: patrol the fence, let everyone know that you saw them, ask for a walk, ask for a treat, take a nap.
Sammy is a pretty low maintenance dog, requiring not much beyond a walk of 2 a day, some kibble and a head rub (OK, maybe 2 head rubs and a chin scratch). Sammy has a personality that reminds us of the actor Sam Elliott - a big rugged, tough exterior with a twinkling eye and a soft heart that's as big as all of Texas. Oh, and don't forget all that distinguished gray - it really sets off his big brown eyes!
Sammy has lives at the shelter for more than 9 years and has a routine that could easily be adapted to a home environment: eat, play, sleep and repeat. He's crate trained, up to date on all vaccines, heart worm negative and neutered. He's one wonderful dog who has waited long enough, been overlooked way too often and deserves a loving home for the last third (or more!) of his life. Won't you take a second look at this handsome guy?
