Rescue Me ID: 15-09-19-00378Sam (male)

Boston Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sam was adopted by our son almost two years ago. They bonded immediately and let's just say, Sam picked my son.. They both moved in with us after about six months, so my son could save for a first, everything was fine, we gave him baths, played fetch the ball and he was very affectionate. After about three months of being here, one day, Sam seemed to turn on my son. He didn't bite him, but growled at him, while in his crate.He also got hold of the football my son and grandson we're tossing back and forth and when my son tried to get it from him, he growled and nipped. Since that episode, my son has been fearful of him. He has since ... (Read More)moved into a house, but was afraid to take Sam with him, mainly because he has a nine year old, that he is concerned about with Sam. We kept Sam at our house and for the most part, with me, he has been fine. He has yet to growl at me or even try to hurt me, at all! One day, on the back porch, my husband went to hand me the IPad and Sam growled. My husband corrected him and it went into something where my husband grabbed him and laid him on the floor. He then became submissive and came out of it. This has only happened once. Our Bull Mastiff was taken sick and in August, passed away. Since then, we also found out that our other dog is having kidney failure. I cannot give Sam the attention, patience and compatibility, that he needs. Adding on, some family matters, it breaks my heart to have to find him a home. I refuse to take him to the shelter, knowing, more than likely they will put him down. Being a dog liver, I cannot let this happen. I am hoping that someone out there will want to give Sam a new home, full of love, which he so deserves. Unfortunately, when getting a dog from a shelter, you don't know what their past was and it's almost as if, certain things scare Sam and that's why he reacted the way he did. As I said, there haven't been any recent episodes and we have been working with him, every chance we get. I wish we could spend more time with him, he is such a love bug! I hope someone out there wants to spend time with him and make him a part of their family. He truly deserves that. I love him so much and just want him to be happy with the right family, that can bring him, around! I do hope you will screen people, that are interested, as I don't want him with someone that will abuse him, or use him to attack other people or dogs. Sam needs a gentle, understanding and loving family or person that will make a big difference in his life! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-23-00229Sam (male)

Boston Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sam is, for the most part fine and is easy to get along with. However, there are times he growls and gets dominant. He has been hand fed, because he was having food aggression. This is my son's dog, but after Sam growling at him, he fears Sam and the well being of his young daughter, so he has been staying with us. We have been working with him and he has seemed to be better, but still has moments where his dominance kicks in. I am a dog lover and it breaks my heart, because I love him so much, but he needs the patience and attention of someone that wants to somewhat rehabilitate him. We aren't young adults anymore and we have two other ... (Read More)dogs, as well that are reaching old age. I want him to get the attention and understanding that he needs to be in a great home, with people that will love him and give him a good life. We have contacted shelters and also asking around for someone to adopt him, but the shelter will euthanize him, due to his issues and it isn't fair, knowing for the most part, he is a good and lovable dog!
