Reston Pet of the Week: Sampson

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Sampson, a Collie in need of a home. If you are up for adopting him, let us know and we will reward you with treats and gifts from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.

Here is what his people at Collie Rescue, Inc. has to say about him:

Meet Sampson! He’s a sweet boy who is 6 years old. He just came to CRI and we gave him a nice grooming and dental cleaning. We do know that this friendly guy has poor vision, so we are having a specialist check out his eyes. But so far, he seems to get around just fine.

He is super friendly, affectionate, and very sweet. He longs for attention and will sit on your feet and lean into you to ask for some hugs. Sampson loves to play with other dogs, both big and small. He is a wonderful big boy!

Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a health exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, heartworm test, heartworm preventative, flea and tick protection, microchip, neuter/spay, and a bath. Visit to learn more.
