Hey do you like my ears, everybody does. I am a middle aged gentleman, seven years old, hoping to find a place where well mannered dogs are appreciated no matter what age. I want you all to know I am neutered and house trained, now what more can you ask? I was found as a stray by nice people who kept me for two weeks trying to see if I had a previous owner. Well nobody came for me so I arrived at the shelter all ready to search for a new family. I am nice with other dogs and really like kids. I am a mix breed dog; I look a little like a Beagle but my wonderful ears are more Hound like. In any case I am just looking for a place to be loved and cared for as a family member. Even if you canít add me to your family will you please tell everyone you know that Sam with the big ears is available!! I too am middle aged, eight years old, but donít count me out! I still love life and know I have many years ahead of me. You will be glad to know that I get along with children and like other cats. I even get along with dogs. I am spayed, declawed and litter trained. I had a home but my previous owner can no longer care for me so I need to find a new home fast because I am not used to shelter life. Please donít pass me by because you think I am too old. We mature animals need to be loved too but best of all we have so much love to give. I am anxiously awaiting your arrival at the shelter to take me home.


This wonderful little girl asked that everyone donate to the shelter instead of buying her presents for her 7th birthday. What an awesome young lady she is and we and our furry friends thank her very much!
