Hello, we are Samantha, the darker beauty, and Sara. We lost our mom at the end of last year. We had lived with her our whole 11 yrs. It was a pretty good life. But we were house dogs and hardly ever went beyond our front porch.

Our lives sure did change when we had to go to a foster home!!! It’s great here and all, but we want our own together forever home and our own person or persons.

So let me tell you about us. I’m Samantha and I’ll do all the talking. Sara will agree with everything I say.

I, Samantha in case you forgot, am way more outgoing than sister Sara. When we go for walks I want to meet everyone, human or dog. We didn’t see many people or other dogs before so I just want to know everyone! It’s so exciting!!!
On the other hand, Sara would rather watch ….. or sleep, she’s a great sleeper.
Anyway, when she sees something new she just stares. Mostly at people. It’s like she just can’t figure out what they are.

And speaking of walks, I am very good a walking on leash even if I do pull a little bit …. There’s just So much to smell!!!!
Sara, up until very recently, wanted no part of walks or leashes and would put her brakes on. So foster mom would just walk her around the yard little bits at a time.
I guess she finally got bored with that and now has started walking next to me! It’s been pretty great ever since although Sara doesn’t like to change directions and would prefer the middle the street.
Check us out in action:

Sara is also learning about stairs one tiny treat at a time too. I know stairs but I learned, the hard way, that I have to do 1 at a time. I hurt my leg trying for 2 at once. It’s getting better though.

Sara is much noisier than me. When she wants something she just comes on out with a loud bark to let foster mom know. She especially likes to let her know when treats need to be distributed.

Our biggest challenge, and more her than me, is trying to remember to only do our business outside. We have used puppy pads forever and it’s a hard habit to break. But we are crate trained and even sleep together in one a night.

So what kind of house/people do we want?
-No little kids.
-An adopter that likes to cuddle. I love to sit on laps, give kisses and just be close to someone who loves me.
-And we really really enjoy being able to hang around in a yard! So we would LOVE a fenced-in one.

Our foster mom tells us everyday what good girls we are and how much she loves us and how much our own people will love us.
We can hardly wait!

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
