Sam is owned by Craig and Laurie Stapleton of Knoxville, TN. As a therapy dog registered with HABIT, he has done therapy work at the University Hospital in Knoxville, and when he was living in Florida with me, he did therapy work at the Good Samaritan Center in Advent Christian Village, Dowling Park.
Sam has never met a stranger, and is a star everywhere he goes. He was chosen by a major, internationally-known hair salon, Salon Visage in Knoxville, to pose with young models for hair ads. He is a frequent visitor to Petsmart, where he goes in and picks out his own toys!
Laurie keeps me up to date on Sam, and tells me how he seems to have an uncanny trait of understanding whatever she asks him to do. Like how he fetches the newspaper each morning for her. And picks out whatever toy from his box that Laurie asks him to get. And anytime she and I are talking on the phone, if he hears her mention his name to me, he immediately begins barking.
When you hear the term “gentle giant”, Sam is the perfect example. He is a special boy that will continue to be an ambassador for his breed.
