Adopted!

Samuel is worried that he’ll never have a fur-real home!

The basics

  • My name is Samuel
  • On my last birthday, I was 7
  • I am a boy
  • I've been homeless since October 7, 2011

The good stuff

  • My best trick is just being me. I never had a person or family of my own to teach me tricks, but I'm willing to learn some! Unless of course being handsome is a trick. If it is, I'm quite excellent at it!
  • Me in three words: Sweet, reserved, loving
  • How I feel about other critters: I love other dogs, but am not a fan of the kitty kind.
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to take long walks or just hang with my special person. Oh, and did I mention that I love getting rubs and scratches on my neck?
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a quiet, adult-only home. You see, I've spent nearly my entire life in a shelter. It can be kind of noisy, you know? So at this point I need a confident guardian who can make me feel safe and loved. I’m just looking someone to end my years of loneliness, to take me for leisurely strolls, listen to the crickets, and just let me be me!

      Amy, we’ve sent an inquiry to Stray Rescue to ask about Samuel’s status, though he is still listed on their site as available.

    Have you considered sharing Samuel’s profile with Susie’s Senior Dogs? They do a great job of getting visibility to senior dogs in shelters that need homes. While I am not personally in a situation to adopt Samuel, I’d love to help if I can sponsor him in anyway.

    Samuels story broke my heart. His story is the same as many around the world and its so sad. I’m in South Florida and we are in the process of adopting a shelter dog as we speak…wish we could do more for more dogs

    Hi! We’d LOVE to have Brittni adopt Samuel!! Samuel does require a couple of meet and greets (or a bit of wining and dining first) before he’ll feel comfortable enough to go home with you. Brittni, if you could please email me at valerie@strayrescue.org I’d be more than happy to set up a time for you to meet him!

    5 years is a long time to be without a loving family and a place to call home. Something about this guy’s story, maybe it’s his patience or his strength and ability to still love people after being overlooked by adopters for so long. Please consider Samuel if you are looking for a loyal companion.
