Sampson is less than two years old, believed to be a coonhound mix. He is very smart and walks fantastic on a leash. He looks up at his person for direction while walking. He didn’t jump up and I was amazed at how great he was after just coming out of the kennel inside the shelter. He didn’t pull or jerk on the leash either. He enjoyed sniffing around when he was allowed to but when it was time to go back inside, he followed commands quickly.
