Arrival Story:
Sam was a stray at a local dog pound. When I saw him lying in the cage, he seemed so unhappy. They told me he had been adopted, but returned after 3 days, because he jumped on the table while they were eating. He became mine that day! Sam had the most beautiful fur I had ever seen on a dog- such colors. He was cratetrained, and house trained. He loves to get brushed, and is excellent at the groomers. Someone must have loved him; I wonder about his background .

The vet told me he was around 3 years old. When I went to have him microchipped, we found he all ready had one! So I was able to find out his real date of birth, and his original name which was Rio. He is a great companion, a very velcro dog. If there was such a thing as chimpmunk search and rescue, he would be a champion. He can dig them out of the ground! (His favorite past-time.) Sam is now 10 years old, and is a great foster brother to the dogs we've fostered for a local rescue group.
