Sammy has decided to hang up her muzzle and retire after 4 whiplash races.  She is still new to us here at AFG and we are getting to know her better.  She joins her siblings, Suki, Shelley and Stanley at AFG in the search for their homes.  Could Shy Sammy be the one to make your family complete?

Hello my name is Sammy. My favorite things are snuggles, pets, bones, going on walks and playing in the yard. I am very skeptical of strangers at first, so it may take me a few minutes to accept pets from you. I mean, do you let strangers touch you? Once I get to know you, I’ll show you that I’m a sweet, sassy, playful girl who loves pets and snuggles. I’m a big leaner and I am so happy to greet my foster parents when they come home. Even though I have a little stranger danger, I’m generally not afraid of other things like loud noises. If something surprises me, I just pace a little and get over it quickly. I have no problems with stairs or smooth floors. Even though I am pretty independent, I need another confident dog in the house to help encourage me to try new things. I get a little jealous when another dog is getting pets or trying something new, this is generally more powerful than my concerns so I want to try what they are doing. This will likely help with my transition to a new home. I also prefer not to potty on the lead so I would like to have a fence. I have become much more confident since I have been in foster care and although I am still working on some things (like taking treats), I have come a long way and become more and more outgoing every day. I’m probably never going to be a social butterfly with human strangers (dogs are great), but I don’t mind keeping to myself when you have visitors.

I’m a very good girl. I listen very well and am very easy to correct. When I’m not getting snuggles and pets I like to quietly hang out in the dog bed and chew a bone. I haven’t had any accidents in the house. I have no problems going in the crate. I stay in it during the day or when people are out and choose to sleep in it at night. I like the crate and it was a nice safe space for me when I first came to foster. Now I realize that doggie beds are great and I like to be around my people and pack chewing a bone or taking a nap. I don’t mind if you clean my ears, clip my nails, or brush me. We are working on brushing teeth. I don’t mind too much. I’m a good girl on the leash and don’t seem to be bothered by distractions on my walks. I do very well on car rides. I jump right in and lay quietly or sleep. I quickly learned the difference between people stuff and dog stuff and I don’t mess with your things.
I apparently live with four crazy cats, but I just ignore them. I also live with several other dogs (greyhounds and non-greyhounds) and I like to snuggle them and play with them in the yard. I really love other dogs regardless of the type of dog. I will be a good sister for your dog(s). I haven’t had any issues with them about space, food, or toys. I like to follow along with the pack and follow the lead of the other dogs in the house. I haven’t spent much time with little humans, but the ones I met weren’t any more intimidating than adults. I think I would be fine with calmer, older children once I gets to know them. Little humans like to give pets too.

If you are looking for a well-behaved, affectionate, funny, playful girl and are willing to give us a little time to get to know each other, I could be your new best friend.
