Meet Sam!

Sam was born July 2005; he is two years old. Sam isn't like most of the Brussels Griffons you meet in the United States: his tail has not been docked. Sam uses his tail to the max to show how he's feeling. When he's happy, he carries his tail high, curled over his back, and wags it constantly.

Sam weighs 25 pounds, is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on shots. He is heartworm negative and is on preventative.

As long as he is kept on a schedule, Sam does very well with his housebreaking. He is crate trained but barks when he is left alone too long. He likes to go on long walks and is leash trained.

Sam would also appreciate a doggy friend who likes to play as much as he does. Sam is quite timid and needs a friend that will show him the ropes and make him feel welcome in his new home.

Because Sam is afraid of most humans, he will need a family who is very patient and loving with him so he can gain confidence. Since we've been letting Sam sleep with us, his attitude has improved dramatically. It allows us to get closer to him and lets him know how much he is loved.

Sam is very gentle with cats. He would do best where there is someone home most of the time.

Sam is being fostered in Grove, OK.

If you would like more information, contact Pam. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
