Unfortunately, Sam cancelled at the last minute. (We literally were headed to the airport for a trip abroad.) Yes, we had arranged an meet and great prior to our scheduled stay.

As our dog is a recent rescue we had no experience as to his interactions with cats. Unfortunately, Dax began to chase ...

What Sam would like to know about your dog

I strongly prefer dogs that are dog friendly, though if necessary I have several ways in which I can safely isolate dogs from my dog or any other dog in the home (gating, private guest room, crate, etc.) I have no strong breed preferences and do like the experience of getting to interact with a variety of different dogs.
