Arrival Story: Sam is the first dog that I adopted from the local shelter. He was very shy and scared, still I took him home. He was just 2 days from being put to sleep because he was one to many. After 2 years, he is the loving and goofy lab that he should be. I don't know what happened to him and he is still over coming obstacles (like meeting new people). I think everyone should look in the shelters when they are trying to find a new pet, there are some great dogs in there!
