Hi! My Name Is Samson

We're happy to tell you that Samson has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.
Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Samson, He was born in foster care in August 2019 and is one of Chloe's babies. He weighs almost 16lbs and has a short hair coat. Samson was adopted out at 8 weeks of age. He was returned in late February as the family said he kept attacking their cat. In his foster home, we have found him, loving, sweet, and loves having other dogs to play with regardless of their size.  . This is where he seems to get his energy release. In March he was adopted a second time, this time the family had two other dogs and children aged 6 and 4.  He was returned as they said he jumped up at the 4 year old while he was eating his breakfast.  Details were not provided other than there was no breaking of the skin.  He has been great around the children we have taken him to meet. He is a darling sweet boy. His family did a wonderful job of crate training him. He goes in it with no problem and currently is fed in his crate. As he is still a puppy, crating would be required when no one is home. Currently, he sleeps with a family member at night. He loves toys and playing with other dogs. He needed to learn how to play nicely which two of the foster dogs have taught him. If puppies are not socialized enough with other adult dogs after 8 weeks of age, they do not know how to play. Adults teach them, especially females. Samson's previous family looked after his health care extremely well. He has been fully vaccinated, neutered and also had Cherry Eye Surgery done at our vets which was deemed a success! He is also on flea and tick prevention. Samson is just still a puppy who will continue to learn manners etc from his new family. He is extremely food motivated and is best fed away from the other dog in the home.  He takes treats nicely but children should ensure they are not using it as a tool to tease.  The ideal home is one where there is another resident dog to keep him company and to teach him the rules of the home. He needs more exposure to going on walks. He does well in the vehicle.  He is very social with people and loves to meet new friends on his outdoor adventures.   Samson is neutered, up to date with vaccines, microchipped, and on flea and tick prevention. If there are children in the home they need to be 10 years plus.  A fully fenced yard, another resident socialized canine, and a Veterinarian History of Compliance are mandatory to apply for our Samson.
