At A Glance
Sam is an 8-year-old, gorgeous Golden Retriever mix (his surrendering owner stated that he is mixed with Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever)! He has such soft fur with beautiful markings on his chest and feet and gorgeous feathering!
Sam was adopted from RAGOM 5 years ago, and recently returned to RAGOM after the SO's (surrendering owner's) young daughter climbed on him and he mouthed her, leaving a scratch on her cheek. For this reason, Sam will be adopted out to a family with older children.
Sam is about as calm as they come! He loves to lay down and chill for hours on end if you will let him, and LOVES to snuggle. On the flip side, Sam gets really excited when he gets to go on his daily walks and run around the back yard. He does the most adorable little “pounce” when he gets very excited. Sam knows basic commands (sit, shake, lay down, heel) and is very much a people pleaser! Sam also has free roam of the house during the work day and is always waiting by the door with tail wagging when we get home! He does great in a crate if needed and respects baby gates. Sam is house-trained and will let you know he needs to go outside by nudging you with his nose, and if that doesn’t work you might get a couple dog kisses to get your attention!
Last week while mowing the lawn, Sam would make his way around the house to “watch” through the windows – he was very intrigued by what was going on.
Sam and our RD (Resident Dog) have not warmed up to each other yet. The SO (surrendering owner) stated that Sam would sometimes have aggression issues with other dogs, but not all. We are hopeful that the two will come around soon!
Sam is UTD on all vaccines and is in great health according to his vet visit! Sam is such a great dog and will be a great addition to your household!
