The only reason Samster has no family is because he is 8 years old. It is difficult for mature dogs to compete with the younger dogs but the truth is that they are often far more suitable companions ... even for families with children. Samster is a companion to all. He is most comfortable when he's with people but he certainly gets along well with all other animals. He is housetrained and perfectly content to snooze in a soft bed until opportunities arise to chase balls, play tug-o-war or join in a long walk.
