Samson is a 9-ish year old neutered male Griff, weighing 19 lbs. Sammy was found wandering in upstate New York in horrible condition. His eyes were crusted shut from untreated dry eye and mats all over his face and back. He had a severe skin infection from flea infestation. A kind volunteer picked up Sammy from the shelter and got him safely to NBGR.
Poor Sammy does not have great vision but gets around just fine. After treating his dry eye condition - which requires medication eye drops twice daily - he feels a lot better and has regained some of his eyesight. While he still doesn't see well - he navigates his surroundings very well. He may need extra guidance with stairs in his new home.
Sam gets along great with the other small dogs in his foster home. This guy is a funny boy - rolling over and wiggling on his back for anyone to rub his tummy! He will be a great addition to most any home. He is housetrained if kept on a schedule, walks well on the leash with guidance, LOVES his food and adores attention.
Sammy is being fostered in Millis, MA.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Cristen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
