We adopted Sam 2 years ago, from a rescue group that had come into possession of German Shepherd puppies. When these puppies became available we figured a puppy would be best as we also have our rescue cat, Eddie Betts. Sam is the most gentle boy, especially towards our daughter, Maeve who is now 5 months old. He does not go many places without her in sight, and I can’t wait to watch them grow together. We now couldn’t picture our little family home without him.
