Samson is a Pit/English Bull dog mix. He has the short legs and bow back like the English Bulldog. He is too strong for small children but is use to teenagers and is good with them.Previous owners had 2 large and 2 small dogs so should be good with other dogs but I do not have any other dogs so I don't really know how well he is with them. Samson 'hates' cats. This is one reason I am rehoming him because I have 2 cats and he has to stay outside in a kennel.
