My story

Samantha, spayed female, 8-months-old, 28-lbs
If you would like to give SAMANTHA a forever home, please contact OR log onto to fill out online application

Samantha is a sweet young pup, friendly and mellow. She enjoys the company of other dogs and gets along well with cats too. She’s very stable and calm by nature, well behaved inside the house, not a barker. She’s potty trained to go outside, also crate trained to sleep overnight. Her favorite pastime is hang out with doggie pals in the park, her daily walks and riding in the car. With some basic training, Samantha will become a superb companion pet for any type of family.

Samantha and her siblings were born to a stray mother dog. The rescuer decided to take care of the youngsters, after the mother dog was brutally poisoned to death. When Samantha was rescued, she was very fearful toward people. But after socializing for a few months with her foster family, she started to open up; could be a little shy when first meet, but warming up quickly. Now she is playful and healthy, and patiently waiting for her forever home!
