Family Heath Emergency

Samson's journey to finding a new home hasn't been without its challenges. His family had to surrender him due to a family health emergency, but his heart is still full of love to give. He's a resilient pup with a wagging tail, ready to create new memories with a loving family.

Currently, Samson is spending his time in a foster home where he's been showered with affection.

Samson even takes thunderstorms in stride!

One of Samson's favorite pastimes is receiving pets and belly rubs. He's a people-loving pup who's always up for cuddles and making new friends.
