What Sammy’s Foster says: Looking for a loyal companion that will adore you? This easy-going gentle giant is one big hunk of love. He loves everything in life - kids, rides in cars, walks/hikes, other furry creatures, scratches under his chin, and of course, treats! Smart and eager to please, just tell him what you want. Sleeps in his crate all night without a peep. Barks only as appropriate. Easy on his leash, and quite eager to meet other dogs as we walk. Great at dog park, with dogs small and large! Not motivated by toys, and not a swimmer (he backed out of the river as soon as he couldn't touch!) A dedication to daily exercise is necessary to continue to maintain his ideal weight (a few more pounds to go).

What Sammy’s Rescue Rep says: Sammy is half-Lab/half-Samoyed. One huge fur baby. His former family advised that he was a big shedder. Besides fur, Sammy needs to continue to shed some weight (he weighed 116 lbs when he joined our program) – so his adopter better come with a committed fitness/exercise program. Sammy is very sweet and loving, but also excitable around new people and dogs.

Medical Information: Sammy is in fine health… current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, and neutered. His ideal weight is around 85 pounds… so he needs to drop another 20 pounds.

Sammy is located in: Oakland.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
