Meet SAMANTHA (SAM)

SAM(antha) is a delightful small-sized Shepherd mix and would make an attentive companion. Sam is affectionate and sweet. She has an overall happy demeanor and just wants love and attention. She prefers dog friends that are smaller than her.

While Samantha wants love and attention, as sated above, she would thrive in a structured, calm home with adults or older, dog-savvy teenagers.

Notes from a volunteer who took her out recently:

We have taken her out before awhile ago, but have had not had a chance to take her since due to the many other dogs we have been taking out. She remembered the scent of my car as she got in and rolled around happily in recognition.

We were very happy to connect with her again. She is definitely a dog who really enjoys a long hike/walk as she is quite energetic as are most German shepherds. She needs a firm hold on her leash and she responds best to firm tones if you would like her to listen to you.

She got along with my two small dogs. She seems to prefer dogs that are smaller than her. When bigger dogs walked past us at the park, she did react with a growl. I am not sure how she would do with dogs bigger than her in general. If you have one and would like to take her out, it would be best to do a slow intro with the help of a Milo staff perhaps, before heading out if all goes well.

She rides well in the car. She does pull occasionally on her leash, but I think it is due to the excitement of being out and the sighting of squirrels. With continued practice, it should be possible to train her with firm commands to limit the pulling.

She does like to lean in to be petted so she enjoyed the quiet moments too when we were siting and taking in the solitude of the park before the rain. When the rain finally descended on us, she was a great sport and ran with us happily back to the car.
