Sammy

Sammy
WHAT IS YOUR NAME?

Sammy

Are you a boy or girl?

I'm a boy

How old are you?

I'm not sure how old I am! My best estimate is between two and four years.


What breed are you?

I am a stunningly handsome American Bully.


How much do you weigh?

65 pounds of LOVE and MUSCLE!

Who do you live with?

I live with my foster mom and dad, and I have become quite the mama’s boy. I love to play with my foster dad too, but I am more bonded to my foster mom. I become fast friends with anyone who shows me love.

WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE?

My foster family calls it my studio apartment, but really it is just a gated area in a temperature-controlled garage. I am working on crate training, and so far, I love to take naps in my crate. I am pretty chill during the day when I am home alone! As long as I have a lick mat or puzzle to start my alone time with, I am happy.

WHERE DO you sleep?

In bed with my foster mom. She thinks my loud snoring is charming.

DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH?

I get really excited for neighborhood walks… I love them so much! For the first five to 10 minutes of my walks, I am sooo excited that I tend to pull and just want to go-go-go! But once I have calmed down, I walk right next to my person--loose leash, chilled out, and happy

DO YOU HAVE ANY “NOT SO GREAT” HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?

I get sad when separated from my person and will fuss and howl my sad songs for a few minutes until I settle in my crate or in my gated area. It is helpful for me to direct my energy into a toy or lick mat during this time and I feel less sad if I have that distraction when I am first left alone.

Oh, and I am not sure I would consider this a “not so great” habit, but I have been told that I am not a tiny lap dog. (Shocking, right? That was news to me, too!) So I am working on giving people personal space and not sitting on them or giving them hugs or licking them so much. Even though I am gentle, I am big!

ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED (DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE)?

I sure am! I am really good at communicating when I need to go potty, so I am great at avoiding accidents.

DO YOU LIKE WATER?

I am not a huge fan of water. I will take baths without much fuss, because I am a good boy and do as I am asked, but it is definitely not something I would choose to do for fun. Is it really ANYBODY’S idea of fun?

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY?

I love to go on walks and explore the neighborhood with my foster family. I love how they play tug and fetch with me and they give me lots of hugs and kisses. I love that they let me cuddle up with them and give me pets and scratches – really anything we do to spend time together makes me happy.

WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE?

I was found running down a busy street, dodging cars. I was very underweight and covered in fleas. I am not too sure about where I came from, but I am so excited to see where I am going.

WHAT IS YOUR ADOPTION FEE?

$300

What do you look like?

I have the cutest pink polka dot skin that shows through my white coat. I have some gray patches throughout my body and the biggest block head ever!! I think my cutest features would have to be my polka dot ears and my tender eyes. 


WHat do you like to eat?

I love peanut butter and pumpkin lick mats and really any kind of treats. I'm always up for trying new things! But I am not a huge fan of fruit or veggies, if I am being honest. Yeah, it’s healthy and all, but I’ll take some peanut butter or chicken over veggies any day!

What kind of personality Do you have?

I am sweet, gentle, and such a lovebug - taking a nap and snuggling with my person is one of my favorite things to do. But when I’m not catching ZZZ’s, I love to be active! When I run, I hop around like a bunny rabbit. Playing fetch is loads of fun for me; I am still working on giving the ball back, but I love being chased around—catch me if you can! I can be super goofy when I am excited, and I really love people! Meeting new friends makes me so happy. I love giving kisses and hugs and being the center of attention. I am a social butterfly. Did I mention I LOVE PEOPLE??!?

Describe your perfect day

The most important thing…I would be by my human's side as much as possible. We would start out on a morning walk or playtime in the yard followed by a yummy breakfast, a puzzle or enrichment toy, and then we would take a nice long nap. I love to nap snuggled up in my crate or on my bed. I am happy to chill most of the day, but I just love being with my people doing anything and everything with them. As long as we have time to play and cuddle, I am happy.


What is your favorite Toy?

I love my bouncy ball – anything that can be thrown, really! Tug ropes are a lot of fun for me too. I also enjoy enrichment toys and puzzles. I am a smart cookie and love putting my sniffer to work! 


Do You Know any Tricks?

DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS?
I can "sit," "shake" with both hands, and "wait." I’m good at being patient even when tempted with my favorite treats! I am working on "lay" and "leave it." I really like to learn and am food motivated, so training is a breeze.

What Scares you?

I am pretty fearless overall. But I don’t really love water…Am I afraid of it, or am I just smart enough to avoid a thing that does not bring me joy? Probably the latter, right? 


Have you been around children?

I have not been around children.

Do you like cats?

My foster family does not have any cats, so I am unsure how I would act around them. No cats please.

How do you feel about other DOGS?

I have three doggy foster siblings with all different energy levels and play styles. My foster mom has taken things slowly with introductions and I am getting along with each of them. I have good manners and pick up on their signals well, so I should be able to integrate into a family that has dogs as long as you don’t rush things. Set me up for success and we will have an amazing life together!

If you could be anywhere, where would it be?

By my human’s side

HOw's your health?

I am a healthy boy! I am such a good boy that I even let my foster family brush my teeth and clean my paws to keep me healthy and feeling fresh.
