Samson (aka Sammy)
Posted on: April 27, 2018

This 10 year old terrier mix is adorable and loves cuddling, which suits his foster mom fine!  He loves car rides & likes to be able to see out the window.  Sadly he isn’t a fan of a crate or being left alone and can become quite vocal – so he would prefer to be your constant companion. The more love & attention the better! & Don’t let his age fool you, he is still peppy and full of personality!

He has been inquisitive about his foster-cat-siblings, barking at them to see what they will do, but isn’t aggressive — just playful!  He is a very well-mannered pup, extremely sweet, loving & cuddly — just an older gentleman looking for his place to retire!

Ideal home : He would love a family where someone is home more often than not, and he would be more than happy to go everywhere he can with his people!

 

Breed: Cairn/Wheaten Terrier/Westie
Colour: Cream, wire hair
Age: 10 years old
Size: About 30lbs
Sex: Male, neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped
House trained: Yes
Crate trained: I am working on this training as I currently do not love my crate — though I am non-destructive when left out.  Sadly my person moved into a retirement home and I was unable to go with them. Since I am not used to being left alone, I protest vocally hoping you will return promptly! I take some time to settle into a new home and can make some noise, so an apartment or attached housing is not for me.
Loose-leash trained: Yes, I have pretty good leash manners!
Commands: I know my basic commands, & listen very well!
Dogs: Yes – I prefer calm, gentle, independent and non-dominant dogs!
Cats: Yes — Dog-savvy cats only please! If they run I may chase.
Children: Yes — My foster mommy has grandkids ages 5+ and I adore them & the attention!

Would you love me fur-ever?
