Dog Waits A Year For Home

Grace Higgins | April 10th, 2019

Through no fault of his own, Sam found himself in the dog shelter. The only family he had ever known had a change in their situation and they could not care for him anymore. So, they dropped him at the RSPCA’s South Godstone shelter. He was a senior dog but everyone at the shelter knew that his sweet loving personality meant he would be adopted in no time. But unfortunately, that is not the case for sweet Sam. He’s been waiting for a year now with no interest from a potential adopter. In that time, 134 other dogs have found a home while he sits and waits. No one at the shelter knows why, but it seems no one wants Sam.

Emily Jefferson, who works at the RSPCA South Godstone says she and the rest of the staff just love Sam to pieces. He is older, sure, but he has plenty of energy and love to give someone. He loves being showered with attention and love his peace and quiet—something he doesn’t get at the noisy shelter. He needs a quiet home to relax and finally just be a dog. Sam is thirteen years old, but he certainly doesn’t act like it. The shelter staff says he loves to play and run around outside, and he also loves to curl up and relax with his people. For the right family, he would be the perfect companion.

The shelter staff is determined to find the perfect home for Sam. So much so, they have been posting about him on social media as much as possible in the hopes that someone will take notice of him and give him a loving home. On his one year anniversary at the shelter they gave him a party, complete with a cake. They also photographed him with his “packed bags” so he could go to a forever home. Sam needs a home with no children and no other dogs. He needs a family who can be patient with him as he overcomes his anxiety and can give him lots of love. To get more information about Sam, contact the RSPCA South Godstone shelter.
