Little bit about Sam

Hi there, my name is Sam and I am on the lookout for my furever home.

I am a happy little guy that wants nothing more than to spend my day playing endless games of fetch with you AND getting all of the butt scratches. These are two of my favourite things. I love pats and attention and have a very waggy tail when I am getting pats. I have been lucky and spent some time out of my kennel in the office with some of the shelter staff. They tell me I am the best dog to have in the office as I curl up on the bed and fall asleep.

I have previously lived as an indoor/outdoor dog and would be best suited to continue this lifestyle. I need a yard to do my zoomies in and play many games of fetch with my family as well as come inside to have a nap when I am all fetched out.

I can sometimes be a little jumpy when super excited, so would be best suited to a home with no children under 16 years. I need an owner that is experienced that can recognise when I am uncomfortable in certain situations like coming across a dog unexpectedly, and be able to work with me on how I should behave.

While I absolutely love hanging out with my people I am not a fan of dogs and would be best suited to a home with no other pets. I would prefer to go to a home where the area is quiet with not many dogs around walking the streets. I can sometimes be a bit vocal towards them so would be best suited to going on adventures where there isn’t many dogs.

If you have a Sam-shaped hole in your life, please ask about me.
Love, Sam
