Hi! My name is Sampson. I’m around 4 years old.. I was brought into a rural shelter in TN as a stray with a gunshot wound to my leg. Due to the extent of my injuries I had to have my leg amputated. This doesn’t slow me down though! I have compensated very well for being a tripod. I’m dog and kid friendly and just a happy guy! I’m up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and will be neutered soon by the rescue. I have been in a foster home in TN and making my way to Chicago. I’ve been doing really and housetrained. I hope I can meet my forever family soon!
