Sam is an 8-month-old male Hound mix. He is brown with white markings and quite a good looking boy! Sam currently weighs 34 pounds so he is considered to be a medium sized adult dog. He came to the shelter as an owner turn in because he apparently really likes a chicken diet. His former owner suggests Sam not be with smaller farm animals or cats. Sam’s family shared that he is almost house trained and with just a little patience from his new owner he should be completely house trained. He is smart and eager to please–he already knows the commands sit, shake, and speak. Sam is very friendly and affectionate. He is also quite active and playful. Sam is just a large puppy who is always ready for a game or a romp in the yard. He would be great in a home with children and other dogs. Please come meet this big baby who is ready to be a family dog.
