Hi there everybody, my name is Sam. Samba Sam.

I am a golden oldie here at Dogtown. I was adopted with my brother Benji years ago, but my mom had to go work overseas and couldnt take us with her. So now we are both looking for new forever homes where we can retire in peace.

I love being cuddled and touched. I am a very affectionate old fella and if I can make myself comfy on your lap, that would be the best moment ever! Just fuss me and cuddle me and tell me how much you love me, that’s all I really need.

I love food and I can be a bit of a greedy eater but at my age, I am not really watching my weight anymore so an extra biscuit here or there is not going to hurt anybody, right? 😉

These joints of mine are not what they used to be. I heard the humans say that I have severe spondylitis which means that I get really sore, but I have meds to help me cope. A warm bed in a loving retirment home every night would also really help me. Despite my spondylitis, I love going for walks, short ones though.

I am a bit of a grumpy old man when it comes to other dogs, I just dont really like those youngsters in my face all the time but I love my brother very much. So maybe if my retirement home has a furkid like my brother, we could be best friends. I must however admit that this grumpy boy and cats…. not gonna happen! So please I need a home without those feline creatures.

Please come and meet me, I am an old boy with a heart of gold.
