  Little Sam, 6 years Male Dachshund / Min Pin  Mix
Little Little

Little Sam is a very handsome 20 pound, 6 year old miniature pinscher/dachshund mix who is looking for a new home because he is nervous with the toddler in his current home. He has a lot to offer and would make a great dog for any number of homes. He LOVES car rides, so could go on your errands with you. He loves to go for walks and would make someone a great little running partner! He also would love to snuggle up on your lap or right up against you under a blanket in the evening. Sam is housebroken and crate-trained; if you say "go to your room" he runs right into his crate! He knows the basic commands sit, stay, down, come and shake. He is currently living with a toddler but is very fearful of him and needs a new home where he is able to relax. Sam was diagnosed with focal seizures in November 2009, sees a neurologist once each year and takes phenobarbital twice each day. He has not had a seizure since beginning the meds, and they are very inexpensive ($10-15/month). He enjoys taking them with a bit of peanut butter. Sam is playful, happy, goofy and loves to play with doggie toys. He gets along well with other dogs but would probably chase cats. He is a sweetheart who would make a wonderful companion to a couple or family with older children, and would love nothing more than to be the apple of your eye! Sam is healthy, UTD on shots and neutered. Please apply online so we can be in touch with you. Little Sam is not at the shelter so would need to be brought here for you to meet him.
