Hello! I am Sam and I have grown up around dogs and enjoy being around them. In my early days I was around a large Doberman/St. Bernard mix and once I grew up some, an Akita was our family pet until she was old. I loved being able to help train, play, walk and feed her and also had to take care of her when she had knee surgery. As I have gotten older, I've taken care of Labradors and Lab Mixes. Though it seems like big dogs have stolen my heart, I love dogs of all sizes and breeds.
