Sampson requires an experienced owner who has experience with more difficult dog behavior and is a strong alpha owner. Sampson's home needs to also not be bothered by a dog that may snap at times to challenge authority, especially early on with meeting new people. He is not the average little white fluffy dog. No young kids, and he would do best in a quieter house without a bunch of people constantly coming and going. That being said, Sampson can be successful in the right home and he does fine in his foster home.

Sampson is a 9 year old maltese mix who weighs about 15 pounds. He's a sweet boy! He loves affection, wants to be a lap dog, and likes to play with toys at times. He is does okay with other small dogs, but would do well as an only dog as well. No large dogs for him, as he can be scared of them.
He can be a barker when he wants something, and is crated while his foster is not home.

Sam can be fearful of new people and new situations. He needs a home where he will be given time to adjust versus just pushed into new things. He wants to warm up to new people before they are trying to pet him a lot. Sampson can get snappy when he is being made to do something that he doesn't want to do - so he does best if he can be coaxed into it. (coming out of a kennel, petting with new people). He does just fine with grooming as long as the groomer is willing to give him some time to warm up into the process.

Sam is dominant and will stamp his feet a lot in a home, and he will try to scent rub up on people at times. He can be a marker, especially around other dogs so he needs a family who is willing to use belly bands if needed. You can get a 5 pack of washable ones on Amazon for $20.

Sam likes his kennel and likes to hang out in there even with the door open. Sam had bladder stones removed last year and needs to continue on a special food for the rest of his life to make sure the stones don't come back. This will run about $45 for a ~10 pound bag.

Sam is a good boy who just needs someone to give him a chance.

Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home. Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
