A volunteer writes: "Sam, Sam, he's our man, if he can't do it no one can". Sam's a little grey hippo, snuggly, fun, likely housetrained, good on the leash, loves a good butt scratch and loves to play ball. A miniature tank, a low rider, a little bulldozer, he doesn't care what you call him, as long as you do! He smiles, wags his tail, loved being out for a walk, but also loved hanging out in my lap in the backyard. He's a treat sneak, as he tried to casually dig into my treat bag for more...cute! But, he settled for more cuddling as he lay across my lap. Once we put a ball in play, his eyes sparkled, he sat to wait for a throw, gave chase and brought it back to settle down for a chomp. Sam's a chill dude in a grey suit; he has age-appropriate calluses on his pressure points, but other than that, his coat is clean and groomed. When our time together was over, Sam hopped back into his kennel, gave me a smile, drank some water and settled down on his bed. Our little hippo is waiting to meet his new family, so ask to meet him today! Another volunteer writes: The more time I spend with Sam, the more I'm in love. His little bunny hops in his kennel as I open his door, his love of butt scratches and cuddling, his love of balls and toys, his gentle, calm and sweet personality, are what dreams are made of. Dreaming of adding the most wonderful pup to your family, the pup who will sit quietly leaning into your legs and gently nudge you with his nose if you stop petting him? The pup who will put you first above all else? The pup with a megawatt smile and twinkling eyes? Run, don't walk, to meet this sweet boy today.

Head back to search more Boroughbreds just like Sam. All animals are microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered before adoption.
