Sampson” came to us on September 28, 2017 after being found all alone on the side of the road in Muniac two days previously.  He had what appeared to be a deformity on the left side of his head, specifically around his left eye.  Sampson was born about July 28, 2017.   He is happy, playful and full of energy.  He loves to hang onto his leash and take himself for a walk, and he particularly loves carrying something around, whether it’s a stick, leaf or anything else he can get in his mouth.  He also loves to untie shoelaces, and he's very adept at it!! 

We are not sure what breed he may be (long skinny tail, short legs, broad forehead, huge paws, abundant and absolute cuteness . . .!!)  In order to determine the cause of his abnormality and to identify the best method of treatment, on October 2, 2017 he made a trip to The Oaks Veterinary Medical & Emergency Referral Centre in Moncton, NB to undergo a CT scan.  He was excellent during the trip down, obviously enjoying the ride and the view, and he loved every single person he met on this adventure. 

Sampson's CT revealed a large fluid-filled cyst in front of his left eye which had pushed his eye down and back, so he underwent surgery at Oaks Vet to have the eye and the surrounding mass removed on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. 

Donations toward the cost of Sampson's CT scan, surgery and subsequent care are welcome and may be made by clicking on this link.  He is overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of all the DunRoamin' supporters he has met so far who have made a new life possible for him and he looks forward to the chance to repay this kindness by "paying it forward."  We're glad you're here, Sampson!  You've got a real future in front of you now!!

 I'm interested.  How do I meet this puppy?

UPDATE:  Sampson's surgery on October 3, 2017 was a complete success and he was soon eating and active - right back to his old personality!  He is a real sweetheart who is loved by all he meets!  He's grateful for all the people who have made this surgery a reality for him.

UPDATE:  Sampson arrived back with DunRoamin' in the late afternoon of October 4, 2017, where he was examined by his vet and declared good to go to his foster home where he will spend the next week or two recovering from his surgery.  Sampson enjoyed his car ride home and was happy to have the attention from many adoring fans!  He requires kennel rest and medication for a week or two and is anxious to begin his new life.  He has already been welcomed back by many new friends, including The Woodstock Slammers' Bryan Hamilton and forwards Nick Pellerin (from Fredericton) and Luke Zimmerman (from Tampa Bay). 


We thank Bryan and Mandy for fostering Sampson and we thank the Slammers once again for their ongoing support of our strays.  We are forever grateful - just ask this little guy!  We also thank all the people who have donated to help pay for his surgery - you made it happen, and we're all very grateful.  Thank you so much.  Please check out our Donations page here.


"Viper" came to DunRoamin' on April 24, 2017 from the Centreville area.  He was born about November 24, 2016 and is a Sharpei/Border Collie mix.  He is a sweet little boy full of fun and energy.  On April 25, 2017, Viper met a lady who travelled all the way from Halifax to invite him to join her family.  Unfortunately, due to a back injury, Viper turned out to be more dog than she could handle, so he came back to us on October 4, 2017.

Viper is fully up to date on vaccines and he is microchipped.  Viper has graduated from basic obedience training and has attended doggie day care with other dogs, which he loves.  He also loves everyone he has ever met and he knows sit, down, wait, stay, leave it, give, off, etc.  He is a very food-motivated little boy, so training is easy.  He is great with all dogs, even ones much bigger than he, but he may be a little rough at times with smaller dogs or cats.  He would love a home and family in which he can gets lots of attention and exercise.

 I'm interested.  How do I meet this puppy?

"Frannie" came to DunRoamin' on September 15, 2017 from the Hartland area where her family was no longer allowed to keep her. She is a Sharpei mixed-breed little girl who was born about September 15, 2011. She was fostered with several other dogs with whom she got along splendidly.  On September 26, 2017, Frannie was adopted to a home in Kirkland, but was returned to us on October 10, 2017.

Frannie is a sweet little girl who loves everyone and everyone she meets loves her!  We'll keep you up to date as we learn more about her from her foster mother.

 I'm interested.  How do I meet this dog?
