Pets with Potential: The Bachelor

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Channel 3's Christina Guessferd went to the Humane Society of Chittenden County to meet a bachelor who knows exactly what he wants in a companion.

Animal Care Manager Devon Krusko said 14-year-old Sammy Davis Jr. has a long history at the shelter.

"This is actually Sammy's third time with us here at the shelter over a period of ten years, so we've actually known him a long time," Krusko said. "We've seen him grow up. He came in this time with some new grey hairs on the top of his head that he hadn't had before. He's well-known and well-loved here, and now we'd really love to find that special person for hopefully what would be his last home."

Krusko said it's a running joke at the shelter that Sammy is a "bachelor" because he is very particular about his living arrangements.

"He doesn't like a lot of commotion. He doesn't want any children in the home. He doesn't want to be a stepdad or take on any responsibilities like that," Krusko said. "He kind of just wants a place where he can chill, hangout, hang with his person, snuggle, sleep. He loves food."

Sammy Davis Jr. will be accepting roses at the Humane Society from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
