Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog [Mix]

Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn with White

Date of Birth: 2007

Medium • Adult • Male • Dog


DOB 2007

Sammy was hanging out on someone's front lawn when the homeowner called a dog rescue organization and asked if they would take him. Our shelter is now working with this organization to find this very sweet laid back guy a new forever home. He is heartworm positive but currently receiving treatment.

Sammy has all the qualities you want to see in a mature dog. He is house trained, walks very well on a leash and does not jump on the furniture (even when invited to do so). Sammy has a very low key temperament, gets along with other dogs (but not cats) and really loves people. He knows how to retrieve and likes to fetch but would just as soon sit and snuggle with you. Although he doesn't like the crate, he is crate trained and enjoys riding in the car but refuses to climb inside without assistance. He is being treated for an injury to his front paw and some sensitivity he has in his front leg.

Sammy is a mix of two of the most popular breeds around - the Labrador and German Shepherd. German Shepherds are highly intelligent, obedient dogs who are alert and eager to learn. The Labrador is a friendly, versatile breed - very even-tempered, easy going dogs with a keen ability to learn - both breeds make excellent family pets.

Sammy has had enough bad luck in his life and is really in need of a home of his own. Sammy is not at the shelter, but if you are that special person who has the love in your heart to give this very well-mannered deserving guy a chance, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or telephone (817) 714-8027 to make an appointment to see him.

This animal has been lucky enough to be adopted into a loving home! Please help us find homes for the others by contributing in any of these ways.
