Meet Sampson (Sammy) (ID5441)

Sweet Sammy, lived the majority of the first 10 years of his life outdoors. Since coming into rescue he has discovered he LOVES the luxuries of what indoor living comes with. While he coexists with the female dog in the home, he has shown that it would be best for him to be an only dog. He craves the companionship of humans and wants to follow you around, getting all 85-ish lbs of him underfoot. He will shove the other dog out of the way so he can get closer to his person and get all the treats offered. He does not like to be outside long and while he is not soiling in the house any more, he does appreciate a personal escort outside. Given his glomming on so quickly and vying for attention, he needs to be crated when left alone. Since he lived the bulk of his life outdoors, he picked up some unbecoming habits, like fence fighting with the neighbor’s dog, but he does respond if you call him off. He also has some pressure sores that have calloused over from lying on concrete. Aural hematomas have made him look like he is a world class MMA fighter too. He also thinks he is part rooster and will ‘cockadoodle-doo’ every morning at dawn (5:30am) . . . having Sammy around insures you will never have to set an alarm ever again and will never be late to work! But once he has been let out to do his business, he will go back to sleep on a dog bed for a couple of hours. Also, as with most ridgebacks, he is a countersurfer and trash hound. Don’t let his outward appearance fool you, he is the sweetest boy yearning for every ounce of love someone is willing to give him. Do you have a dog bed, or couch and love to spare for a sweet senior looking for his soul mate? Sammy is also good with dog savvy children, though he definitely needs to be taught to be gentle when taking treats. He also needs leash training and a fenced yard.
