Wanna play fetch? Of course you do – who could resist those eyes! Meet Sam, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. He’s a 12-year-old Cockapoo from Richmond, Virginia. Sam is already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Sam’s Tale:

Meet Sam!

Sam is food motivated. He can sit, down (lay), roll over, leave it and stay. However, stay is not his strongest command. He is always eager to play ball and fetch. He will bring you his ball and ask to play – such a smart boy. You can hide tiny treats all over room and he will find each one.

He has a couple of minor conditions which are controlled with a pill every other day and a spray once or twice a week.

Sam wants love and attention all the time. He thinks he is a lap dog and wants to be close to you. He loves all people but will jump up on them. He loves all dogs and does well at the dog park.

He is potty trained and has never had a problem. Sam uses a doggie door, but even when that is shut, he will wait at back door until you notice him. He has never had an accident since he was a puppy.
