Sam is a 1-1/2 year old Basset Hound - Shepherd mix looking for his forever home. He had a very rough start in life. He came from Southern Georgia where he was found as a stray, malnourished and just skin and bones. Thanks to his caring foster mom, Sam has gained his weight back and is now ready to find his “forever home”.

He is house trained, walks on a leash, loves other dogs, and gets along with cats. Sam has a gorgeous black coat. He is long like a Basset Hound, but has the head of a Shepherd. He has a perfect weight of 43 pounds, is full grown and is short in stature. Sam is a very loving and social dog who will be a perfect fit for any household. Sam is spayed, up- to-date with his vaccinations, and micro-chipped.

For more information on Sam or any of the other dogs available through Home for Good Dog Rescue visit the Home for Good website (www.homeforgooddogs.org), call (908) 598-8212 or email info@hfgdr.org.  If you are considering adopting Sam or one of the other Home for Good dogs, please complete an online application.   A pre-approved application is required for all “meet and greets” and adoptions.

Dear Editor:

I’m proud to support Colleen Mahr for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee  (UCDC) and am encouraging my Scotch Plains peers to join me.
