Updates from Foster Home: 

Pupdate 1: Hi, I'm Sampson. I'm somewhere around 3-4 years old and I was rescued in Texas from an owner who abused me. Because of this, I can be apprehensive about new people -  particularly men. I warmed up to my foster mom right away but it took my foster dad a few hours of patient ignoring for me to warm up to him. I was fostered in Texas for a year, where I was neutered and taught how to live with a family. I learned what cats were, and found out that I'm very interested in them, but they aren't in me. I also got to know a few kids and both my Texas and Wisconsin fosters suggest I don't go to a home with small children, I just don't know how to control my size. When I moved up to Wisconsin, I didn't know what snow is, but I sure did learn! I found out that I'm definitely a summer dog because I have a lot of energy so walks and playing are a must. After playing though, I'm always down to snuggle the rest of the night. I quickly learned that a treat meant kennel time, and so sometimes I sit next to the kennel to try and trick my fosters into giving me a treat. They never fall for it. I do like playing with other dogs, but sometimes I can get a little rough and can be a bit intense when toys are available. My fosters love me, I give the best snuggles, and are looking for a special home for me to thrive.
