Description:
Our beautiful boy Samson is a true testament to the miraculous nature of animals. Surrendered to a high volume, inner city shelter with his elderly yellow lab mom, both long neglected, he was shy, overwhelmed, and confused.  He clung close to his mom they had to be separated at the shelter and he was alone and frightened. Years of neglect resulted in fur loss, dry, patchy skin, and low body weight.  However our pup Samson was gentle, sweet, and very responsive to anyone showing him love.  We knew immediately he was a special pup, with a joyful spirit and loving nature just waiting for someone to show him it was ok to trust humans.  

As his condition improved, his inner puppy began to shine. As a matter of fact, he seems younger than his 7 years (and he may be).  He is a champion fetch player, and if there are no takers to his offer to play catch, he just pushes the ball by himself, and tail wagging, runs to catch it and beams with pride at his success.  At home he is the perfect, calm, easygoing couch potato. Sweet Samson just loves to be around his humans, and goes with the flow of the situation. At home TV time, is perfect for some nap and cuddle time.  

This beautiful pup with the gleaming black fur is all good things that we love about dogs rolled into one gentle package. Dog friendly, human friendly, wonderful house and company manners, and a loving, entertaining, companion (and a terrific listener). Samson will be that special once in a lifetime companion to his forever and ever humans.
