Samantha was found as a stray in a cemetery by a Good Samaritan, who took her in. The finder lived in a trailer with no fence, but says she let Sam out of the trailer twice a day -- morning and evening -- and Sam went potty and then came right back in. When it became evident that Sam was pregnant, the finder surrendered her to National Great Pyr.
Sam is a young girl, probably 18 months or so. She had 12 pups and she did not like being a mom -- she's way too young to have taken on that many puppies!
In temperament, Sam is a pretty typical Golden Retriever -- except she's
supposedly a Pyr! She has double dew claws but she is very people-oriented, loves to learn tricks and is very motivated to please -- unlike most Pyrs. We think she's a Golden mix or perhaps an English Cream Golden Retriever. There's simply nothing about her that says Pyr except her hobbit feet and double dews.
Sam is not good with chickens or cats (we think that it may be because she had to feed herself for some period of time while on her own) but is great with goats and small dogs. She is HW positive and is being treated with slow kill.
She just adores people and wants nothing more than to hang out with someone all of the time. Samantha is just an absolute love!
