Samantha is a very cute pup! She is very friendly and curious around other people, and with animals, she is quite curious, and seems to be fine ignoring them, as long as she is close to her human. While she loves being with her human companions, she is quite content to take naps when her foster is busy. She is a wonderful, affectionate, and loyal lass who loves her owner, and wants to be by her owner's side all day.

Samantha is also very smart, and learns quickly, especially with the help of time and treats! She is also a polite, and house trained lady. She is heartworm positive, but all that means is that she will receive treatment at APA!'s expense, and she will need a few weeks of rest. She is adventurous and curious on walks, but will always follow her owner no matter what. Come meet Samantha and let her show you how adorable she is!
