|Samson and friends Nov. 2012|
from his new home
10/13/09: Sam is doing well.
He hates the rain and doesn't want to go outside when it's raining.
He's picking up in some of the training pretty well. He's got sit working on lay down. Any suggestions on "whoa" and recall would be appreciated. He has a playful and affectionate nature. I got his tag over the weekend and will send yours back tomorrow ......He does pretty well on the leash as long as you stay on it, and after he gets some energy burned off he is just fine.
Still owe you some pictures. TW
10/03/09: Thought you'd like to know Sam is doing very well. Seems to have adjusted very quickly.
I've socialized him with my neighbors and girlfriend as well as her two dogs, a Catahoula and an Australian Red Heeler, both deaf. He loves that little red heeler.
I took him in to my vet Friday morning, and they gave him a thorough checkup, bordatella vaccination and cleaned his ears and a bath. He was very well behaved so I'm told.
I am out of town and my girlfriend is house/Sam sitting. I've got several pictures I'll send you when I get back.
8/12/09: Samson has been pretty sad since his playmate got adopted. He has been trying so hard to get the other dogs to play with him. He loves to romp around, bouncing from place to place in the yard hoping one of the dogs will chase him. He is just a big playful boy who is looking for someone to love him and give him attention.
On June16th a person called about a huge dog that
he had been leaving food out for. He had just found the owner and when the
owner came and got the dog and shot him!!! The dog had shotgun pellets in
his ear, on his ear and in his neck. The vet got most of the pellets out.
He has recovered nicely. Considering how much pain he must have been in,
he was a real sweetheart when we picked him up. Obviously he is a great
dog to have gone through so much misery and still be willing to give his
trust and his heart to people so easily. We named him Samson.
