Meet Sam

Take a look at this handsome fellow! His name is Sam! He and his brother, Dean, were found abandoned by a boat ramp as little puppies! They are hoping to find great homes this Spring!

He has been vetted, and he is ready to find their fur-ever family!

Here is what we know about Sam:
- He is about 4 months now, and weighs approximately 35 lbs!
- We did a DNA test on his brothers DNA, and it turns out he is 59% Aussie, 16% Plott Hound, 5% Mini American Shepherd, 4% Tree Walking Coonhound, & 3% Catahoula Leopard Dog.
- Since Sam is still so young, he should do okay with kids over 8 years and older, but parent should be aware and mindful of some puppy antics, like nibbling and jumping!
- He is good with dogs!
- We are not sure how he is with cats, but if the cat in his future home is dog savvy, he should do just fine!
- Sam would love an active home, One of his parents was likely full Aussie, which means he will likely be a more active dog, and would thrive on both mental and physical stimulation!
- Sam is not potty, crate or fully leash trained yet, so he will need a home that will help work on those things!

What we love about Sam: He is a fun, and happy puppy, who loves to play!

Is Sam the one for you? He's got his doggie bags packed and is ready to make his way home to you!
Their adoption fee is $400! That covers all his vetting and care up until the point of adoption.

If interested, please reach out to Brittany @, and she will break down the adoption process for you and send you an application link!
