Samson Homed

Post  Sheba'sMum on Thu Sep 08, 2011 5:32 am

From Gill in Ireland:

Samson is travelling over to John next week and will arrive in Chertsey on Thursday, 15th Sept.

Basic info:

Very BIG fellow, approx. 49/50kgs. 10 years old & in great health. Neutered/fully vaccinated & microchipped.


Due to his family emigrating to Australia, Samson needs a home. His owners are not rehoming him without serious consideration, but because he is such a big fellow, the sheer cost of flying him to Australia is enormous.

Samson has not been under Gill's rescue, so all the information in this thread is supplied by his owners and Samson is going to John directly from his home.

Firstly, Samson will need a calm, confident & experienced GSD and/or large dog owner. He is not good around dogs, though he has lived for the last few months with another dog in his home - a GSDx ,male pup - Samson's owners carefully introduced him to the pup & he accepted Buster ( pup) after 6 weeks of supervised introductions:

Samson & Buster ( GSDx pup)


However, other than Buster above, Samson is not dog friendly.

*He is a strong dog on the lead.
*Travels well in a car
*Samson has lived with cats - again after very careful introduction & supervision to the cats by his owner
*He loves swimming, but he does not like to be bathed and will only tolerate some grooming.
*He also does not like visiting the vet and needs to wear a muzzle for any vet visit.
*He will seriously chase - swans/ducks/hens.....so he is prey driven & this needs to be taken into account as he is not a dog to be let off lead in public areas.

He is very obedient in a calm home and will sit & give the paw.

He loves his comfort & his special little toy which he has minded since a pup and it will travel with him -he is used to all the comforts of home living:


His owners said that Samson is very young at heart & very lovable, he does love his nose rubbed & will bury his head into your stomach so that his nose gets rubbed.

Samson's pal Buster has got a new home , so Samson will need time to adjust to the changes in his life, loosing his little friend & his family.

His owners desperately want Samson to have the chance to live out his golden years & are very grateful that John is helping Samson to get that chance.

His owner has just emailed some more info. on Samson:

"He loves playing fetch, DROP IT is the command to drop the ball..

LEAVE IT, is another one if you don't want him to be at something. If ever feeding him something by hand, it's quite important to say EASY, especially if it's meat, otherwise he can get a bit excited. He doesn't like food scraps, he doesn't like most dog treats, except for 'Bonios' dog biscuits, he loves them, he usually gets one after a brush and when he's going out to bed in the evening. "

IF you feel you are the special person to give Samson his retirement home please call John: 01932 571268

Samson is a beautiful looking dog and sounds like a big pussycat too. Fingers crossed that he gets his loving forever home soon.

If anyone on the forum is thinking of adopting him don't be put off by his age as hes more than likely got many many years of loving to give that special person.

Whilst waiting for his new home Samson has found himself another girlfriend by the name of Lottie. As I type they are both laid out behind me relaxing after a 20 minute chase around the garden. Lottie is with me for a couple of days whilst we find a way of getting her to Preston in Lancashire

from Helen a behavourist /trainer. http://www.abcdogs.co.uk/

Samson came to stay with me for a few days to see if he would be suitable as a therapy dog ..... Bless him but the chaos we live and work in was just not fair on him HOWEVER: this is my assessment of a truly special dog:
Samson IS wonderful!!! He is kind gentle, easy going ... IS actually quite good with other dogs - he had to cope with 6 here plus daily visitors ... he just didn't need the competition!!! And why should he have to at his age???
That said I would never have believed he was ten!! More like seven .. very strong on his legs, looks mature but def NOT old!!
He is an easy traveller - a fabulous companion and if I were looking just for a pet/companion - well you would have to go a long way to find as great a pal as this dog!!!
Sincerely anyone who give this dog a chance will NOT be disappointed .. my 15yr old daughter adored him .... he is truly a gent, loving, loyal and extremely impressive too .. I LOVE HIM and if I thought he would enjoy the work we do, he would still be with me .. so please DON'T DISCOUNT THIS BOY BECAISE OF HIS AGE.. HE IS INCREDIBLE!!!
