In his foster home, Sam gets along swimmingly with his 3
or 4 foster brothers, and 3 foster cats. He's a very soft
dog who doesn't like raised voices and avoids confrontation
- to the point of allowing himself to be bullied by dogs
with stronger personalities. Sam just wants to hang out
and be part of the gang!
As far as Border Collies go, Sam is relatively low-energy.
He definitely needs daily exercise, but he's not all go-go-go
like some. He'd do very well with any type of family.
He grew up with a child in the house, and is reportedly
very gentle with children. He has no guarding issues from
people or dogs. Sam is crate trained, house trained, and
has some basic obedience, including a great recall. Sam
only barks when a stranger comes to the door, or when he
is playing with other dogs.
