Fea­tured pet: Sa­muel

Sherbrooke Record - - THE BORDER REPORT -

Sa­muel is a happy, ac­tive and play­ful pup. He is very peo­ple ori­ented and be­ing a bit sub­mis­sive, he is quick to roll over for a belly rub. A real charmer, he knows how to work his magic on every­one he meets.

Al­ways ea­ger for an out­ing, Sa­muel walks well with a front clip har­ness and just needs a lit­tle more work to master his leash skills. He loves his treats, so they are a great mo­ti­va­tor for train­ing. When out in our dog park, he takes full ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to run and play but he calms down when asked and for the most part he is very obe­di­ent.

One lim­i­ta­tion is that Sa­muel must be the only dog in the home and be­cause he does not tol­er­ate dom­i­nant dogs, he is not a dog park dog. He isn’t, how­ever, re­ac­tive when see­ing other dogs when out on walks although he will some­times get a lit­tle ex­cited when he spots an­other dog.

Sa­muel is 2.5-3 years old and he is be­lieved to be a Ber­nese/rot­tweiller mix. He isn’t overly large but has a solid, stocky build and he is strong. He weighs ap­prox­i­mately 80 pounds.

Sa­muel re­ally en­joys his walks and he will do best with an adopter who is com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing he gets the ex­er­cise and men­tal stim­u­la­tion he needs.

To in­quire about adop­tion, send an email to fron­tieran­i­mal­so­ci­[email protected] or bet­ter yet give our adop­tion co­or­di­na­tor Brenda a call any day of the week be­tween 8 a.m and 8 p.m at 819.876.774. For more in­for­ma­tion about our shel­ter, visit our web­site at safas.ca
