Dog of the Week: Sampson

Stephenville Empire-Tribune
Sampson is a 3.5-year-old Pyrenees and Shepherd mix. He came in tagged as a feral dog and it was advised he be euthanized. Sampson was not aggressive; he was just scared of people and didn't know what love was. Since being here, Sampson has opened up so much and shows his personality so much more. Although he is still reserved, he is learning that he likes gentle affection.
Sampson walks well on a leash but is not dog friendly. He will need to be the only dog in the household. He is already neutered, microchipped, and is heartworm positive but already started on treatment. Sampson has been here at the shelter since September of last year. He deserves a chance.
