I got Sammie at the Pima Animal Care Center, he is going to be 2 years old in March and weighs around 27 lbs., so he's on the light side where you can still pick him up easily. He is going to need a house with a backyard, as he has lots of energy in him. He enjoys being outdoors most of the time and when he is, he can run very fast just for fun. He loves playing fetch, but when you try to get the toy back, that's the difficult part because he wants you to chase after him, its a game to him. Finally he loves the attention and being pet quiet often. He is neutered and current on vaccines.
