ADOPT ME: Charismatic Samuel needs home with room to play

Barrie SPCA says he's ideally searching for family experienced with Australian shepherds or similar herding breeds

BarrieToday, in partnership with the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Samuel is a beautiful, charismatic two-year-old Australian shepherd who is looking for a loving forever home where he has plenty of space to run and play.

Raised in a rural community, Samuel had the freedom to roam and contribute to daily tasks and duties. Sam is highly intelligent and responsive to commands, and also incredibly task oriented.

His playful spirit shines through, making him an ideal candidate for someone who can provide him with plenty of attention and stimulation. Samuel is diligently working on managing his dog-to-dog manners, but he would thrive in a spacious property with limited exposure to other dogs.

To ensure his happiness and well-being, Samuel is ideally searching for a family experienced with Australian shepherds, or similar herding breeds, who can dedicate the time, training, and affection he deserves.

Are you ready to embark on a rewarding journey with this unique and lovable companion? Contact the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre to meet Samuel and take the first step towards making him a cherished member of your family. Your heart and home might be just what Sam is searching for.
