Meet Sam

Sam is a unique looking dog. With beautiful Merle markings that get darker around his back and tan over his legs. We're not sure what Sam is but he has the body shape of a Pointer or Great Dane type and is looking to be a large size boy when fully grown. Sam knows basic obedience commands but needs work on lead and when out and about as sadly he's been a bit unsocialised during his puppy months. Sam is very friendly and loves people. He's good with other dogs and very playful, but a home with another playful dog who is older and can teach him some doggy manners would be ideal. Sam is still learning not to jump up and like many large breed adolescent dogs, he's unaware of his own size. So small kids could easily be knocked over, but Sam's intentions are well meaning. A big puppy, Sam will make a loving and playful addition to a home experienced with large dogs.

Sam was adopted on 10 August 2008 after 1 month in foster care
