Was found wandering in our neighborhood 1 yr ago
Skills: Sit, listen when told to get inside kennel.
Sam loves attention he's a big teddy bear, he loves to rubbed on his head, and back. If you don't give him attention he'll continue to come and rub on you till you show him love.
He doesn't really care for toys but he loves to run and chase birds. He hates water, so if he sees the water hose in your hand he won't come near he will wait till he sees that you've turn off the water before he comes near again.
With that, he's not a fan of taking baths but with a leash he seems to understand he can't go anywhere and just gives in and let's you take him a bath without problems 😊
Sam has a sweet older boy temperament, but can still play with the younger brothers. He loves his family and would be great as an only dog or with another older dog.
He will make your family complete!!

Something to Consider:
Puppies don't train themselves
If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.
Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.
Puppies turn into dogs...
