Meet Sam

I have loads of energy and need lots of exercise. I had a rough start to life, neglected and dumped at the pound as a pup with my siblings I was then attacked by another dog and I really wasn't coping very well. I was then taken into care by my foster mum Kim to be given one on one attention and with lots of encouragement, training and in the company of a confident doggy friend, I am now a happy healthy young lad. I can give attention when requested, sit, lie down, leave things, stay, come when called and I walk well on a lead. I need an owner who has had experience with dogs, is kind, and only uses positive training techniques, because that's what my foster mum has taught me. I am a lovable boy who would do well in the company of another young dog, and also where I am able to live inside/outside with my family. I would suit a family with an active lifestyle that I could be a big part of. My foster mum is a dog trainer who is offering to help me and my new family settle in together with advice and ongoing training if needed.
