Meet Sam

Sam is a very big, very sweet, wonderful rough collie boy! I love him already. 🙂 It’s so nice, actually, to have a healthy collie rescue in our home for once. Cheyenne was in such bad shape with his broken leg, bad teeth, and matted coat. And Jewel was also awful with her poor cut down coat because she’d been so matted, and had that bone stuck in her jaw. Both of them had been found as strays.

Sam is an owner surrender. He’s 8 years old. They couldn’t keep him anymore because they are having human children. 🙁 I’ve posted him on Petfinder.

He seems to think he is a top dog, so we have to watch him with Lucy. Since he’s so big, he has to have manners, I really can’t move him around much. 🙂 I bet he’s about 100 pounds. He towers over Levi, who is 24 inches at the shoulder and 65 lbs. But he is sweet and loving and very smart. He knows how to sit and shake, and we’ll see what else he knows. He was even starting to play with me this morning.

As usual, Chase hates him. So Chase and Levi are separate today. I have the web cam on, not sure if we’ll get a glimpse of him though. He’s not crated today because he’s 8, and mellow, and I don’t think he’ll chew on anything. He was crated last night and he whined only a little bit but settled down quite well.

*sigh* another collie boy I’m sure to fall in love with. 🙂

  2. What is it with people that give up their pets just because someone’s pregnant? Geez. All that love, loyalty, and devotion that pet gave means nothing to them I suppose.

  5. Gawd that burns my butt! Hello! have they never seen Lassie?! Kids and Dogs, when brought up properly do wonderfully together!

    Of course THAT might be too much work…

  7. How could they give up a beautiful 8 year old dog just because they were having children? Was the dog just a bookmark in their lives until something better came along?

  9. I also get angry when an older dog is given up. 🙁 However, I’d rather have him with me than in the shelter. And I have to look at it as another wonderful dog soul gets to touch my life, and I am honored for the brief time I spend with all my fosters.
