Breed:Greater Swiss Mountain Dog / German Shepherd Dog

Samson was surrendered to the shelter by his owners on 9/26/11 because they had a newborn and did not feel they could care for both the dog and the child. He is a German Shepherd / Greater Swiss Mountain Dog type mixed breed. When he arrived, Samson weighed 52 pounds and was approximately 3 years old. He has been neutered, is current on vaccinations and is now available for adoption. Samson is our current office dog and spends his day in the office with the staff. He is shy around new people when he first meets them, but is friendly and loving once he gets to know you. Samson is not a dog who could be kept in a kennel, but he would make a great house dog for someone with no small children. Samson's adoption fee is reduced. He is listed as special needs because of his need to have time to get to know his new family. Unless otherwise stated, the adoption fee for one of our dogs is $110 if the dog has already been spayed or neutered. For dogs that have not yet been spayed or neutered, the adoption fee is $60 plus a surgery deposit of $50. The surgery deposit will be refunded once the shelter receives proof of the completion of the spay or neuter surgery. Our shelter is open to the public on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm and other times by appointment.
