Sam went to the Jasper County Animal Shelter when his owner was arrested and extradited to Nebraska. The rest of Sam's family wanted him to return but were not able to get him. The shelter was full and I've been thinking I need to become more accustomed to little dogs so I said I'd handle him.

Sam stayed at the kennel and didn't get much attention from me because I was concerned that he might slip through the interior gates in areas I use with the bigger dogs and I wanted another person available to help with introductions.

After a couple days we discovered that a friend of ours from Caring Paws was driving to Omaha, right near Sam's family! I accompanied Sam to be chipped and vaccinated for the trip. He was such a great dog, especially for a Chihuahua!  Even the vet and tech. were impressed with him.

I delivered Sam to his transport that evening and he did surprisingly well with the two Rough Collies who were very excited to see him.  Sam was reunited with his family the next evening.

I'm watching for more exceptional small dogs...
