SAM* - ID#A224728

My name is Sam* and I am a neutered male, black and tan Miniature Pinscher.

The shelter staff think I am about 6 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Jul 02, 2017.

This information is less than 1 hour old.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
This sturdy handsome little guy was a bit shy when he first came to the shelter but every day he becomes more relaxed and confident. He likes to play with toys and he's friendly with other dogs and has a great time in our shelter's small dog playgroup. His sweet disposition has made him a favorite of many shelter volunteers. His previous owner said he was good at the dog park and house trained as long as they let him out often enough.

Sam deserves a new start as one of the family. Would do best in a quiet home, without loud children running around. Responsible children 8 and up should be ok. Strongly recommend training to help boost his confidence, and form a bond with his new owner.
