Sam is an adorable, bulldog mix who is about 4 years old. He’s a couch potato who loves car rides and lots of belly rubs! Sam prefers his canine buddies to be ladies only. He weighs about 60 pounds and has the cutest low rider stance. He will be working on his socialization and basic command skills during his time with us.


I have been taking Sam out to the big yard and he loves running around. This was Sam’s first time being without a leash on and he ran from me the entire time. After I stopped chasing him and walked around, he finally gave up and wanted to play. I worked with him on his commands and he did well. Every time I ask if he wants to go outside, he gets excited and comes up to give me paw and kisses. Sam loves attention and loves to be pampered.


Sam is getting so much better with his behavior and he is listening well. He loves giving hugs and kisses and is so energetic. Sam will give you kisses unexpectedly and jabs lightly at you with his paws when he wants to play. He will sit in front of my bed and watch TV with me. Sam loves to be outside and likes to be petted.
Sam and Ace play together for very brief interactions with no issues. Ace is the only dog that we can do this with so far. Progress!


Sam has been improving on his commands. He is starting to sit when told and will also stay when told while I am walking away. Sam is making progress on leaving things. As far as items in the cell that he would get into, he now leaves it alone when told leave it. When Sam really needs to go outside to use the bathroom, he will use his nose to hit my feet while I’m laying down or climb up on the bed and give me kisses before going to the door and sitting. When given a treat that he does not like, he will spit it out and hide it in the cage.


Sam is very intelligent and even though he can be a little stubborn, he does follow commands and loves to play. He loves being outside and going for walks. When you’re taking him for a walk, he’ll stay right by your side and won’t pull. When others approach you, he’ll sit by your side and observe. Sam gets bored when left alone and he will party and help himself to everything while you’re away.
Sam’s very cuddly and gives kisses.
When he needs to use the bathroom, you will know because he sits by the door and looks at you while wagging his tail. Overall, Sam needs work but is full of love and affection.


Sam is very shy and hesitant to approach people, but he does allow a few individuals to pet him though. He does not seem to know any commands yet, but I'm working on it. He hasn’t met all of the dogs yet and seems pretty calm so far. He’s been here for two days. I will give 100% in making him better and I'm looking forward to seeing his progress.
