Sammy Wants a Home

I am a smiling, tail wagging, snuggly, three legged lab. I was found as a stray in Tennessee. A rescue group helped me get to the Animal Service League. I am estimated to be 7 to 8 years old. It is unknown how Sammy’s front right leg came to be missing. The strain of trying to get around, has created damage to his hind legs. Thanks to the generosity of many kind folks, Sammy now has his very own custom built cart. He enjoys being taken out for a real stroll once a day for about thirty minutes. He can get around a home fairly well with the power of his three legs. Sammy is now doing physical therapy at a rehabilitation facility (to strengthen his muscles and help his gait), goes on outings to the park, and loves riding in the car.

So what does Sammy need now? A loving home... of course loving Sammy is the easy part. He needs a home that will not feel sorry for him! Ideally, he will need to continue therapy with monthly visits to keep help with the strain of his lost leg. He gets along well with other dogs in public settings but he is a food and toy guarder. If there are no toys or bones etc. and supervised, set feeding times, he would probably enjoy the company of another dog. He has excellent manners, is non destructive and is housebroken. He loves children, and is very easy going. He will snuggle his way right into any  family. His favorite activities are curling up in laps, pets, and of course long walks in his cart.
