Sampson 2017

Dear Santa,

Hey Santa!!  Hope you are doing great.  I am doing much better this year than last year.  I was saved by BRBR from a shelter and have been able to live a good life these past few months.  Foster Mom told me to tell you what I want for Christmas and that you will do your best to get it for me.  She also told me that I had to be good to get it so I have been on my best behavior.  I would LOVE a FUREVER FAMILY.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my foster family but I think my furever family is out there waiting on me.  We just have to team up and find them.  I would love to go to a family that had another young dog for me to play with (because we all know I love to play).  I would also like a family that either has a tall fenced in yard for me to run in or a family that takes me to doggy day care a couple times a week.  I love to go to doggy day care.  I would also wish that my family had a nice bed for me to sleep in (preferably with them, LOL).

Thank you for helping look for my furever family.  I will be sure to leave you some milk and cookies out this year.  I will try to not eat the cookies first.

Love,

Sampson

Sampson is a very sweet and lovable boy and fun to be around.  He loves to play with people and with other dogs but will also settle down and lay on the couch while you are watching TV.  We have been taking him to doggie day care twice a week and he LOVES going.  We are working on house manners and he has come a long way.  He loves to play with rope toys and balls.  He also enjoys chewing on his Nylabones.  Sampson would do best with a family that has a 6’ privacy fence or no fence at all.   He can jump a shorter fence.  If you don’t have a fence then he would love to be able to go to doggie day care a couple times a week to run his energy off.  He could use some training on a leash but is much better when you use the right kind of leash and collar.  We use a figure 8 leash on him and it helps keep him calmer while outside.  He does good in a crate.  He needs a family that will be stern with him and not let him takeover.
