Cute, little oldie Sam was rescued after being found on the street, where he was run over. He is quite small and has a short, tan coat. He suffered a fracture to his hip, but made a complete recovery and has no trouble jumping on his foster mum’s bed. He went into foster and has been there for about a year. However, Sam has to share with several other foster dogs constantly coming and going and is not that happy about it. He loves to sleep, mooch about and cuddle up. He can be a bit grumpy at times, but then at his age I think he is entitled. He has had in the past some kind of injury in his eye which has left him blind in that eye, but it doesn’t seem to bother him. He doesn’t have many teeth left, although he still manages to eat his small biscuits, treats and meat. He loves sleeping under covers, so spends a lot of time sleeping in his bed covered up. Poor Sam deserves a quieter home, where he can be the centre of attention and enjoy lots of pampering in his senior years.
Sam is a special little chap and has just had donations made for him by generous Dog Watch supporters, that allows his travel costs to be subsidized, so now he is travelling with Lesley in her car with 4 other dogs to the Uk, so he will be quite comfortable

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
