Sam ( Named Ethan at Dogs Trust) from Harefield (West London)

When I first saw Sam at the centre, my decision was made, I knew I would be taking him home. He is about 2 years old and seemed friendly but unsure and we were told he was deaf. That didn't stop him from making himself at home. From the first night he decided his bed would be mine even if that meant kicking me out of it so he could spread out. He has thrust himself into his new family and though he has only been with us for 3 weeks it feels like he's always been with us. I am also delighted to find that he is not completely deaf as we were told and that after the first few days of settling in he seemed to be able to hear certain sounds after not responding to any sounds. His hearing has improved greatly with only a partial hearing loss. He is now well and truly one of the family.
