ALEXANDRIA, VA – Sammy is a 1-year-old male dog, who had a very rough time at the shelter. The shelter was a loud, scary place for him. Thanks to AWLA’s incredible network of fosters, Sammy was placed in a foster home, where he can grow his confidence and blossom. Sammy is an extremely sweet and affectionate dog, but he can be shy and timid meeting new people and when experiencing new things. With a little love and encouragement, he can make someone a wonderful companion. Sammy is quicker to come out of his shell when there are other confident canines around. He does extremely well with other dogs, and his perfect home would have a doggie friend to serve as a role model. Sammy does need a little more time, patience, and TLC, But he is so worth it! Since Sammy is in a foster home, please email [email protected] or call 70-746-4774, option 2 to inquire about a meet and greet.
