Henri has lots of puppy energy and LOVES to play. While he enjoys being outside, he really prefers being inside and close to you. He   loves chewing on fingers and has developed an interest in flip-flops…..he doesn’t chew on them…he just wants them in his collection of stuff!!
He can be protective when people are at the door but as soon as they are inside, he wants attention and petting.

He would really love the company of another dog to play with. He is a cute little fellow…..just waiting for a loving home and a furry buddy!

Henri is showing higher levels of activity now that he has grown and really needs a fenced in yard to run and play. He is very sweet and LOVES to play but also VERY hyper!!!

UTD on shots, Heartworm positive, Microchipped, Neutered. Sammy is undergoing slow kill heartworm treatment due to his advanced age.

About this Pei :
Samurai, “Sammy” for short, came into rescue after being found as a stray in Orlando, FL.  Those who found him took him in and provided for his short-term care but were unable to keep him long-term so reached out for help with him and FSPR answered their call.

Sammy is an older boy with arthritis in his hips, he is also heartworm positive, and may have some hearing loss due to chronic ear infections.  Sammy requires medications on a daily basis for management of his arthritis pain and is receiving treatment for his heartworms, as well.  He did have ear infections upon initial vet examination upon coming into rescue and was treated for those.  Due to Sammy’s need for long-term medical treatments, donations are much appreciated so we can continue to provide for whatever care he needs.

Sammy’s foster mom says he is a very sweet old guy and he gets along well with her other dogs.  He has learned the household routine and is fitting in nicely with the pack.

Please consider being a Guardian Angel for Sammy as he will likely remain in the care of FSPR until he crosses the rainbow bridge.  If you would like to adopt Sammy to allow him to live the remainder of his life with you, please complete an adoption application.
