Sam is a 3 year old, 27 lb Corgi/Terrier mix. He is absolutely adorable and is such a great medium sized dog. He may be a little shy at first, but he warms up quickly. Once he warms up, he LOVES spending time with his people, and will give lots of kisses. Sam excels at lap-sitting too. He is in heaven when he can get petted while sitting on his person's lap. He actually looks like he is grinning with joy and contentment. He likes to explore the backyard, but he hasn't shown any interest in playing with toys yet. He gets along with the other two dogs in his foster home, and he totally ignores the cats. He doesn't live with kids, but we think he would be ok with kids over the age of 6. He does tend to jump up on people when he is excited to see them. Sam is crate trained, but he can figure a way out if it's not securely latched. He likes hanging out in his crate when the door is left open. At night, he sleeps in foster mom's bed or on a nearby bench bed or goes into his open crate. He needs a little more practice on leash walking and general obedience. Sam is very food motivated, so he will be easy to train. He is also just a little bit overweight, but some exercise and good food will have him in shape in no time. Sam will do best in a fairly quiet, low activity home where his people are home quite a bit of the time. Sam will be a loving and loyal companion for the right adopters. Sam has heartworms because he wasn't kept on monthly heartworm prevention. Heartworms are not contagious, and Humane Tomorrow will pay for his treatment with our vet.
