View Full Version : Urgent foster home needed for Samson

19th June 2009, 04:11 PM
Samson is getting really stressed in kennels (Birmingham area), and we are desperate to find him a foster home before he can go to his forever home...


If you can help, pls contact me asap..

Samson is under the care of DogwatchUK...

Was Samson ever cat tested?

20th June 2009, 08:19 AM
yes he was, he does show an interest....he wasnt aggressive...would just need some training so he knows they arent play toys...

What about with other dogs and perhaps children?

20th June 2009, 08:32 PM
Sorry Verity but my cats aren't good enough with dogs to put up with waiting for him to learn. If you know what I mean. They're too worried about dogs.

I do hope something happens asap for him though.

22nd June 2009, 04:08 PM
I'm sure I remember seeing some none animal homes when I was looking through the foster list.

Will see if I can find them again and PM some people.

I would love to foster this little lad, he is adorable, but I have to put my little boy first. If he had been proven to be good with young children then I would have definitely have given him a home for a while but I just darent risk it.

Keeping everything crossed fo rhim. :glwave:

22nd June 2009, 06:45 PM
no problem about the cat (he knows to keep upstairs when we have house guests. lol)
aslong as he's ok around children (my brats know how to behave around dogs. lol) then i could help out.
would need help with food cost though as my mum has just lost her job so my spare cash is being used to buy her food,etc at the mo

:shock: That's awful. His head looks too big for his body. Poor mite.
I just don't understand the people who make them this way

Hopefully you'll be able to post updates in the not too distant, I'm sure he'll be such a good looking boy when he's back to full health. He needs a lot of big hugs and kisses :hug:

25th June 2009, 01:01 PM
wow that's really good news. can't get over how thin he was, but i'm sure he will piling on the pounds in no time. :hug:

25th June 2009, 05:18 PM
he got here at three this afternoon, and boy is he a bouncy chappy. lol (well once i managed to get him outside that is)
he's very nervouse of everything and races back inside at any noise.
came with me to fetch my daughter from school and was as good as gold (onlt slight pulling on his lead)

do have issues with him deciding to sptay everything and anything he can in the house and nicking my throws off the sofa but nothing to major so far.

he did manage to bowl my 2 year over but she just laughed it off as he got a bit excited at his new toys and friends.
he's just off out now for a another short walk before settling down for the night

will add the pics of took of him today later tonight once the kids are in bed.

25th June 2009, 05:21 PM

He sounds like a dream

25th June 2009, 10:23 PM
Naughty doggy making a 2 year old feed him

Tired after eating his blanket

Making sure he's scented everything including his food



Don't think he's settling in very well do you. lol


And to think aparanently (sp) someone had wanted to have this boy pts because of his breed so i'm told.

25th June 2009, 10:24 PM
Poor little boy - fallen on his feet there.

25th June 2009, 10:32 PM
Oh bless him!!! :hearts: He looks like he's lived there forever! :P :love: :hug:

25th June 2009, 10:35 PM
Aww, shall I move these across so he has his own thread? It's lovely to see how he's getting on! :4:

25th June 2009, 10:42 PM
i'll do it later as i'll open him a threaad for looking for a home once i've got all his details tomorrow if thats ok

25th June 2009, 10:44 PM
Of course! :DD He looks like such a sweetheart! :heartgrin:

25th June 2009, 10:56 PM
he's seems it.
just hope i have a kitchen to get up to in the morning as he's not good on his own and confined apparently, and didn't want to force him in the cage they left for him.
so will be working on that over the few weeks i should think. along with trying to my throws off the sofa to eat them. lol

25th June 2009, 11:10 PM
Aww! :lool:

Did Samson find a suitable forever home :grin:

21st September 2009, 06:23 AM
He had to go back to kennels from mine (had big problems with the locals) but the last i heard a few weeks ago was that he was going to a new forever home in birmingham.
