It took our family a year before we were ready to have another dog. Our previous dog, Shimmy, was an amazing pet and his loss left an absence that couldn't be filled by just any other dog. From the first moment we laid eyes on Sam, we knew right away he would be the one and that he would be coming home with us. There weren't many details on his time before the shelter, other than he was born in Virginia, but it didnt much matter. All we cared about was that he needed a home and that we would be giving him the love and care he deserved. It has been 3 amazing years since we adopted him and it has been the best decision my family and I could have ever made.
