Samantha ("Sam") is a lovable female German Shepherd Dog. She's a"senior" dog (over 7 years old), but she doesn't act like it. The "snow" on her muzzle shows her wise, old character, but she's still young at heart.

One of the great "secrets" of this breed is that the very best years start once they're seniors. They almost seem to have telepathy to read the thoughts of the people they love at this age. They're done with puppy mischief and ready to just enjoy life. Most Shepherd-owners describe these as the "magic" years.

Sam still has a lot of life left in her -- she's the most energetic, active senior we've ever known. She loves water and has her own swimming pool in her foster home. She plays with the water hose during the filling of the pool, biting playfully at the stream of water.

She warms up to some new dogs slowly, but she does okay once she knows them and trusts them, especially with good leadership from her person. However, she would be happiest as an only dog (and she does not like small dogs).

She's still a solid, well-built dog. As she may knock over small children, she isn't recommended for little ones (though older, considerate kids could be okay).

Sam has been cleared by our vet for adoption now that a major surgery repairing a bad hip is behind her. She was a great patient and made lots of friends at the vet clinic. The rescue already paid for this expensive surgery and handled her rehabilitation so that her adopter won't have to -- she acts like she's got a new lease on life now that her hip is fixed!

She's ready for some fun as someones beloved companion. She's house trained and ready to join you on the couch (or in the pool....).

A completed adoption application, with vet and personal references, and a home check are required to adopt Samantha. If you are interested in adopting Samantha, please fill out an adoption application. All adoptions are approved solely at the discretion of the RSGSR board of directors.
