Meet Samira

Please contact Meghan Whittaker (meghanw@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet.Looking for a family to adopt me!SAMIRA NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!

Name: Samira Best Guess for Breed: Basenji

Best Guess for Age: 2 years old as of 5/31/18 SEX: Female

Approximate Weight: 40lbs as of 5/31/18

Gets Along With: other dogs, kids 15 and older; Samira likes to chase cats!

Currently Living at: DC area foster home

Special Adoption Considerations: There must be another dog already in the home for Samira's confidence and comfort level; no children under 15 years old due to Samira's need for a calm environment; no cats because of Samira's strong prey drive. Her adopters must be committed to patiently and lovingly integrating her to her new family and environment.

Samira is Looking For: A family and at least 1 fur sibling who are ready to provide the love, patience, and calm environment that Samira needs! Samira is friendly, inquisitive, and playful, but maybe slow to warm up to certain people. Samira loves to play with her toys and her 2 male foster siblings (40lbs and 60lbs). She is extremely smart and would benefit by having an experienced, dog savy adopter(s) who will take her to obedience classes. True to her Basenji DNA, she can be very independent and should not be allowed off leash. She is able to quickly and easily jump her Foster's 4 1/2 ft. fence. Adopters would ideally have a fence that is 6 feet or higher, preferably solid board, since the can climb a grid fence. As a result, most dog parks will not be safe for her. Samira crates well and she may need to be crated during her adjustment period when you leave the house. She is not given "free water" because sometimes she will "anxiety pee". After 5 months with her foster family, this only happens rarely.

What My Foster Says About Me: Samira is one of the brightest, most loving doggies we have had the pleasure of fostering. Samira was found alone in a house totally destroyed by Hurricane Maria. She was rescued by Lucky Dog and our partners in Puerto Rico. From the time I picked her up, Samira has been so very sweet and gentle. She is also submissive with her foster siblings. Now that she is more confident and knows that she is safe and very much loved, it is time for her to find her forever home. We will be happy to arrange a "Meet and Greet" with your dog(s), family and friends at our home.

Please contact Samira's Adoption Coordinator @ meghanw@luckydoganimalrescue.org to apply to adopt and "Meet and Greet".
