Critter Chronicles

Critter Chronicles: Sampson



Sweet senior Sampson is here. Please don't let his age deter you; he plans on being around a long time. He hasn't had the easiest life. Before coming to Friendship APL, he was at a kill shelter. Boy, he's sure glad to get out of there. The trouble is, he's still in a cage. It's a lot nicer here, but it's sure not as good as being in a real home with people to love. He's a very easygoing guy. He's good on a leash and love to just hang out with his humans. He was never neutered. He's probably too old to be neutered now, so he's need to go to a home where he's the only pet or one where the pets are altered. He has some hip issues, but he still likes to walk. He's just a really nice guy that would like to live out his senior years in a loving home. Just because he's a senior doesn't mean he doesn't have a lot to offer. Please give him a chance, he won't disappoint you.
