Sam – updated 23.08.17

Posted August 19th, 2017 by sarah

Sam is a 5 year old neutered Jack Russell male. Sam came in to the rescue with his sister Cici as their owners no longer had the time to look after them. Sadly Cici was very poorly with a long term condition and passed away shortly after arriving in to the rescue.

Sam has not really experienced much in his little life, his previous owners did not have the time to walk, train and socialize the dogs. When he arrived he still was not completely toilet trained, he had no idea about other dogs and was a little confused about the outside world.
Since being in the rescue Sam has learnt to play with toys and is really keen on playing fetch, he is a real water baby, he is great off the lead and is learning lead etiquette (he doesn’t pull just criss crosses in front of you and goes round you like a maypole) This has improved dramatically since being with us. He is good with cats that ignore him, however if they run or try to attack him, he thinks it is a game and will keep pestering. He is not good with small furries, but is great with ducks, geese, chickens, horses, cows and donkeys. Sam is good with other dogs, but he basically ignores them as he is not quite sure how to interact with them, he is walked with up to 8 dogs of all size ages and nuttyness and he is slowly coming out of his shell and has been seen to having the odd play.
Sam can be left for up to 3 hours, however after this he will start to bark.
Sam is a really sweet dog who has live with children 8+, he would ideally suit someone who is looking for a companion to go walking with and who has visiting family.

Sam is fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and will come with 5 weeks free insurance. If you feel you could offer Sam a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]
