My husband and I just wanted to share Sammy's happy ending with ABTC Rescue. He and his big sister, Brady, fell in love almost immediately. They romp through the forest with us daily, snooze on the couch together, and of course, wrestle almost constantly. Sammy loved the snow this past winter (though he prefers to wear his fleece jacket when it really cold). Despite his hilariously loud bark (which sounds more like a seal than a dog), Sammy has made lots of doggie friends. One of his favorite new pals is a basset named "Harry." Here's a couple of pictures of Sammy and his sis, Brady.
Sammy really is such a joy!! I can understand why the trainers loved him so much—everyone he meets just adores him. Yesterday we took him and Brady to the reservoir and let Sammy swim out to some loons! Although he hates stepping through mud puddles, he loves to swim after ducks and loons. He meets other dogs almost daily on his walks in the town forest (we have miles conservation land with trails behind our home). His favorite new friend is a purebred basset named Harry (he looks just like Brady, but shorter). When Sammy jumps up to pounce on Harry, the basset barrel rolls away. Sammy thinks it’s so hilarious, he does circles in mid-air!
Please let the trainers know that Sammy has maintained his extraordinary manners, and that he is getting tons of love from his new family. He’s filled out a little, but still just a lean little guy compared to 80lb Brady, who has lost 10lbs since gaining a brother to play with. Easter Sunday we are talking him hiking with Brady and his pal, Ginger (a yellow lab) and our 2 nieces and 2 nephews (ages 5 to 13). He’s wonderful with kids. We honestly couldn’t have wished for a sweeter dog!
