Meet Sammy

Sammy was surrendered to DCH because his owners will be travelling overseas for long periods on a regular basis and they didn't feel it was fair to kennel him so much. He is 8 years old and originally came from the RSPCA. He is in great health apart from needing to lose a few kilos. Sammy is a typical Labrador

always happy, food motivated, simply loves attention, follows you around constantly

very much your new best friend. He will fetch a ball a little but prefers to be at your side. Sammy has had basic obedience training (Come, Sit, Stay, Heel)

Sammy was adopted on 22 December 2012 after 3 months in foster care
