We have been casually looking for a dog for awhile, knowing that the boys would love to have one (and so would I!) We've been pretty particular about the specifications for this dog - not a puppy, doesn't jump on people, doesn't shed, not expensive, etc. (Now you know why we've been looking for a long time!) However, our patience (or procrastination?) has paid off!!!! Thanks to a wonderful friend and neighbor, who knew of a dog who needed a home due to his owner passing away, we are a dog family again! Sammy is a perfect fit for our family and we are all smitten already! He is 7 years old, half Airedale/half poodle and is laid back, tolerant, low maintenance, sweet and big!
It didn't take long for him to be comfortable enough to sneak onto the couch and apparently we have turned into big saps because neither of us have pushed him off.
We're all so happy to have Sammy join our family!
