Meet Sammy!

Sammy is a quiet, sweet, adorable a little guy. His little tongue sticks out most of the time, which just makes him even more endearing. He was rescued 12/21/08 and is already almost house trained which tells us he is pretty smart too. He's learning about leashes and love and is doing very well. He has quickly discovered that love is the most important thing of all.

Once Sammy gets beyond his initial shyness, he does well with young children, as well as adults. However, because of his small stature, children should be supervised when with him. Sammy would be happiest if at least one of his humans works from home or is retired.

Sammy gets along well with other dogs as long as he doesn't have to share your lap with them. He didn't have someone to love for his first 4 years of life and all he wants to do now is be close to you. He wants to please us and is trying very hard to learn how to share his humans!

Little Sammy weighs just 9.6 lbs. and was born 8/14/04. He is neutered, current on all vaccinations, microchipped, heart worm negative and on preventative. He is located near Davenport, Iowa.

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

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.

Sammy has been Adopted!

Sweet little Sammy's adoption was approved on Friday and his new forever parents were so excited that they drove over 100 miles the very next day to bring him home! Sammy's beginnings were filled with fear and neglect. With this wonderful couple, he has found more love than he could ever imagine before!
