PET OF THE WEEK: Sam is affectionate and beautiful dog

Sam is a gorgeous 1-year-old dog that looks like a cross between a chocolate Labrador and an Australian shepherd. His size is closer to an Aussie, but his coat is a beautiful chocolate brown. He has a fantastic disposition and is very affectionate. For more, call the Highland Lakes Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at (830) 693-0569 or visit to see other adoptable pets.
