Labrador Retriever - Samm-in Training - Medium - Young - Male
at the Green River Correctional Center
Age: ~10 mths Weight: ~40 lbs
Sam is a sweet dog who is a little shy for the first few minutes, then he's a playing machine! He does well with other dogs. He will even do some fetching. Any family would be lucky to adopt him!
This dog is currently enrolled in the Death Row Dogs program and will graduate in October 2013. The Death Row Dogs (DRD) Program is a 12-week course with a specific curriculum designed for both dogs and inmate trainers. The program has two goals. The first goal is to save the lives of dogs. The second goal is to help individual inmates. The program is located in the Green River Correctional Complex (GRCC) in Central City, Kentucky. Each dog lives in a cell with two inmate trainers. Dogs are taught basic obedience, house training, crate training, and even some tricks. Before graduating, almost every dog passes the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen Test on their first attempt.
The adoption fee for this dog is $200.00 and it helps to cover a portion of the dog's vetting costs and a 1 hour training session with dog behavior experts at Tri-State K9 University for the adopters. The adoption process includes the completion of an application followed by an interview.
