Sammi will show off her tricks in exchange for a family

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - We'd like you to meet Sammi. She's a 4-year-old Australian Shepherd Labrador mix who is well-trained and full of energy and spunk.

One day Sammi decided to take a dip in the lake and couldn't find her way home.

"She was a previous pet. Somebody owner her before and she was actually found around Sam Rayburn Lake and brought in to us," said Aaron Ramsey, Director of Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter.

Sammi is spayed, potty trained and has a microchip in case she ever gets lost again.

"Sammi is a real loyal dog," said Ramsey. "Well trained. She's not exhibiting that at the moment."

Sammi has a lot of energy and she really likes to show off all her tricks she can sit, shake, lay down and roll over.

"As you can see she loves to play. She's got a lot of energy and we need to find a good home for her," said Ramsey.

Because Sammi is such an awesome dog and deserves a loving home, the shelter is offering a special adoption rate.

"Typically our adoption rates are $60 but with Sammi we are going to offer a $35 adoption fee," said Ramsey.
