Meet Sammy

Sammy is a 2 year old mix who was born into Brookline's care when his mom, Nora, a labrador mix was in foster care. Nora was in a kill shelter in MS housed with an unaltered Husky mix. Both were saved by different rescues, and it was later discovered that Nora would be having puppies while in foster care. Sammy, along with his six litter mates were adopted out at 8 weeks old. Sammy was adopted by first time dog owners and at 11 months was returned to the rescue due to training issues.

Sammy has learned his good dog manners while in foster care, and is ready to find his furever home! Sammy would do best in a home with a confident, experienced owner with no young children who can take charge and is home more often than not.  A large fenced property that is in a quiet, low activity area is optimal so Sammy can play, roam and explore at his leisure. Sammy also loves to swim. Sammy can burn off a lot of mental and physical energy roaming, splashing in the water and sniffing, and just loves spending his time outside. Sammy is not a high energy dog and settles well in the house as long as he gets both mental and physical activity throughout the day. He enjoys puzzle games, the Kong wobbler, frozen stuffed bones, antler chews, squeaky rope and ball toys, and playing chase, tug and fetch. Mental and physical activities help him settle readily, take a good nap and be the best companion he can be. He would probably enjoy having a job that let him use his nose, and/or tracking skills or chasing off pesky geese in your pond.

Sammy can be a challenge because he is very smart, and sometimes stubborn, and he absolutely knows when you are trying to trick him and doesn't fall for it, except maybe when it comes to ice, olives or American cheese!  He is definitely food motivated which makes training easier.  Sammy is a great dog that deserves to find just the right forever home so he can live a long, happy and carefree life full of exploration of the outdoors and loving his people.

Sammy is loving, funny, loyal and playful but he can also be independent, persistent, and protective.  He needs someone that will prove to him, through time and absolute consistency, and positive reinforcement training, that you mean what you say so he will respect and love you.
