Meet Sam

Sam is the most beautiful 4 year old shaded sable male Collie Rough. He is great with children, small animals including chickens, cats and other dogs. He has been a joy to care for as he is very gentle and extremely affectionate, he loves to be brushed, taken for walks and loves drives in the car, he just so wants to be part of the family. Sam has been really easy to train and can sit, stay, come and drop. Sam is happy just to lay at your feet, loves pats and cuddles and needs to be wherever you are, I often get a paw on my lap when at my desk to get a pat or a wet nose in my face to get me up out of bed for a walk. He has big brown eyes that melt your heart and you can't but fall in love with him, he will need to go to a home where he can be inside when the family are home as he loves human attention. Sam is so well behaved inside, I put a soft blanket on the floor and he snuggles up on it and falls asleep and stays there as long as you let him. He is such a handsome dog, I am forever getting stopped to pat him on walks and he will bring so much love to whoever adopts him.

Sam is currently in foster care in the Newcastle area and he will only be allowed to go to a family in either the Newcastle or Sydney area and a property inspection will need to be done before an adoption can take place.

Sam was adopted on 31 July 2010 after 2 months in foster care
