My name is Sammy and I’m in search of my forever home. I was sprung in February from an LA shelter from my foster hooman. I’m only 1.8 years old and had already been returned to the shelter TWO TIMES. The first time I was returned to a shelter by my adopter for being “too low energy.” What does that even mean? That sounds like a doggy dream come true if you ask me. I was adopted out another time and then returned later because the people moved. I’ve heard doggies usually get to move with their hoomans, but I guess they didn’t want to bring me along. My foster mom says it’s their loss and my perfect person is out there waiting for me. Could that be you?
My foster family says I am a cross between Scobby-Doo and Jim Halpert (I don’t know what that means). I like to follow my foster mom around the house and keep a close eye on her. I’m a very good boy. I’m also mellow and calm and don’t jump on people. I get along with my foster family’s dog and their 5-year-old hooman, I love chasing balls, chewing on Nylabones and ice cubes, sleeping on couches, and getting treats.
My foster mom says no one is perfect. And that includes me. No one’s ever kept me long enough to teach me basic training and obedience (I know “sit” but apparently there are other commands I’m supposed to know?). My foster family also says I’m very interested in their cats and said I should probably be in a home that doesn’t have them (I am especially intrigued by one that they refer to as “Chunks of Fun”).
I had a lot of potential meet and greets, but I was limping and everyone wanted to find out why. So my foster mom took me to the vet and found out I have hip dysplasia in both hips. I get it. I hear fixing that sort of thing is very expensive. But a lot of dogs don’t end up having surgery and still get to live a full and happy life. I just can’t be your hiking buddy or go for long walks with you. But I wouldn’t ever abandon you if you weren’t perfect. Don’t I deserve to have hoomans who will love me despite my imperfections?
If this doesn’t scare you and I sound like the perfect match for you, PLEASE PLEASE write back and let my foster mom know you’re interested. I’ve been very patient but I’m very ready for my forever hooman and home.
