Samuel Clemens. Literary, lively, loving. This 13 year old Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher mix is named after Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens was his real name) because he is intelligent, funny, and just like his namesake, guaranteed to make you smile.

Housebroken, crate trained, and good with other dogs as well as cats, Samuel is an easy addition to a household. This little 9 pound dude is always smiling and full of wags and kisses. He came to SCCR through animal control and clearly has had more than his share of bad luck but he is sweet, sweet, sweet, and you’d never know that he’s had his woes.

Samuel enjoys being outside and, given a crack in the fence or any other opportunity, would love to go adventuring, much like Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn. He will need an attentive human to serve as his sidekick and keep him nearby.

Little Samuel deserves the best. Can you provide that for this special guy?
