Description:
Male - 2 years - 80 lbs - Microchipped - Neutered - FLHi there! My name is Samson and I am a 2-year-old, 80 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained, though I am a gentleman who does not need to be crated when left home alone.
I am a sweet boy who loves everyone I meet: men and women! Any children in my home should be older as small children may inadvertently hurt me. I actively seek affection and love getting belly rubs or massages! I am welcoming of visitors to our home.
I require slow, proper introductions to get along with other dogs. The other dog needs to be female and socially appropriate. I am currently fostered with two female Shepherds and I enjoy their company and will play with them in the yard! I like to carry toys and chews around and will engage in short games of fetch in the yard! I have done well with cats.
Before I came to Echo Dogs, I suffered an unknown traumatic injury leaving me with improperly healed fractures in three of my legs and my sternum. I am on pain meds and joint supplements which I will need to be on for life-they cost about $90/month. I am currently well-managed on my meds, but my orthopedic doctor suspects my health will decline in a couple of years and my life (of quality) will be shorter than most Shepherds. I enjoy going for short walks and can get into vehicles without assistance, though my adopter should have the ability to lift me should I need it in the future. I would do best in a single-level home where I wont need to regularly do stairs.
I love car rides and have learned my basic commands working with my trainer! I am a happy, loving boy who is ready to find my perfect adoptive home - could you be my family?

Echo Dogs fosters dogs in many states. Visit www.echodogs.org/available-dogs to see more of our dogs. Transportation for the adopted dog IS available. Remember, we are an all-volunteer foster rescue organization - we DO NOT have a physical shelter to visit. Our minimum adoption donation is $300. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Puppies under 6 months old may not be spayed/neutered. This would be the responsibility of the adopter at their own expense. Proof of spay/neuter will be required!
