Sam’s family can no longer take care of him due to circumstances. The owners surrendered Sam, a thirteen-year-old Senior Staffordshire Bull Terrier, to RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) South Godstone shelter. As soon as the staff saw him, they figured that a family would adopt Sam right away because of his sweet personality and cute face.
Sadly, a year passed, and Sam is not yet living in his forever home. The poor dog watched 134 other dogs at the shelter find a new family. The staff feels baffled because Sam is an adorable dog.
He may be a senior dog, but Sam is still active and is said to be young at heart. He loves running around, and playing outside; those are not the things you would expect from a senior dog. Sam is also sweet; likes to snuggle his favorite people. He got the perfect qualities of a family dog.
What a great garden to play in…now he is hoping for a garden of his own where he can play til his hearts content. Sam may be 13 but he's still a spring chicken.#adoptdontshop #findeachother #official_rspca #playtime #garden #sticks #fun #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedogsarebest #rescuestaffy #staffyrescue #ilovestaffies #staffordshirebullterier #goldenoldies

One of the staffers, Emily Jefferson, said that they are not sure why people overlooked Sam for so long, he is friendly but the time has come for him to be away from the kennel life. She said that Sam needs a place where he can relax and enjoy being a dog.
The staffers at RSPCA South Godstone dedicated their time to find his forever home because they knew that Sam deserves all the love he can get. They post his pictures and activities regularly on all their social media platforms to reach more people.
They even had a photo shoot for him when he celebrated his first anniversary at the shelter. They got him a cake, and the idea of the photo shoot is to display how ready he is ready to go home to his forever family. His packed bags signify that he is hopeful for a new family.
