Shapeshifter Collie

Inspired by Misty of Book Rat's Helluva Halloween Spotlight On: Shapeshifters,

-and this post is also part of my Helluva Halloween challenge

I would like to share my current favorite shapeshifter.

Sam Merlotte in HBO’s ‘True Blood’ tv series based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

Sam lives in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, and is the owner of a bar named Merlotte's. Sam has strawberry blond hair with blue eyes. He is both a close friend of and the employer of mind-reading barmaid Sookie Stackhouse. Sam is a shape shifter and likes to spend some of his time as a collie. Although his preferred shape is that of a collie, he can change into any animal he sees. On nights when the moon is full, Sam - like all shapeshifters - feels a strong urge to change, the rest of the time he can do it at will. - wikipedia excerpt

What I like about Sam is his loyalty towards Sookie.

What shapeshifter encounters in books, tv or film have you come across that you like?
