If you’re seeking a big, goofy love bug to complete your family, look no further than Sam. This 3-year-old brown and white Pointer mix is always eager to meet new people and lay his head against your chest to simply enjoy the contact. He’s an energetic guy, so he’ll need a large fenced-in yard where he can run, play, and enjoy in his favorite activity: rolling around on his back, giving his back a good scratch. He seems excited about the idea of playing with other dogs but isn’t particularly interested in cats. Sam likes kids, but he weighs 75 pounds and probably needs a household with only older children.
Her name says it all: Beauty. This solid black cat is as quiet and calm as she is pretty. She’s only 10 months old, but she already acts like a more mature kitty. She’s comfortable around other cats but prefers companions that are equally tranquil. The high energy of children makes her nervous, so she’s seeking a household that is going to provide her the calm atmosphere she loves. Beauty is sweet and affectionate, preferring gentle scratches and rubs to spirited playtime.
