VIDEO: Dog of the week – Sammmy Pig

SAMMY Pig will make a great companion once settled in a new home.

But the new owners will need to take time to build a trusting bond before the seven-year-old Staffy feels comfortable enough to leave Dogs Trust Shoreham.

The charity says: “Sammy likes to take his time getting to know new people and would love his new owners to visit the centre to build a trusting bond before going to his new home.

“Sammy will become a great companion once settled. He has a really fun character and loves being in company.”

Sammy is great with other dogs and has made a name at the centre for helping nervous dogs build confidence.

Operations on his legs in the past mean Sammy needs only short, 20-minute walks throughout the day and Dogs Trust will pay any future vet bills that are related.

Tracey Rae, Dogs Trust Shoreham rehoming centre manager, said: “Sammy has been doing really well with his training. He is a very bright boy and really cannot wait to find a family to call his own and enjoy some home comforts.

“Sammy walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car. He would happily live with a dog in his new home.”

Call the Brighton Road centre on 01273 466970 for more information, or visit any day apart from Tuesday to see a varied of dogs looking for new homes. Opening hours are midday to 4pm, Thursday to Monday, and midday to 7.30pm Wednesday.
