Sammie, or Samantha as she is also known, was adopted through ESRA five years ago by a couple who can no longer keep her.

Her adopters took very good care of her, but age has caught up to all of them. Sammie loves to be petted, learned to use the doggie door, and enjoys playing outside, especially by the pool.

Sammie is on thyroid medication which helps keep her weight normal. She can get confused at night, and needs a secure place to sleep.

Sammie would be best as an only dog. She seems somewhat afraid of children and is unknown around cats. If you can give Sammie some love and comfort in her remaining years, please contact her coordinator at the email address listed below.


A special note regarding Sammie and all of ESRA’s seniors:

Why adopt an older dog?

Most people go to a shelter or rescue organization wanting to adopt a puppy or a young dog. By adopting an older dog, you can make a statement about human compassion and the value of life at all ages. Older dogs are often the last to be adopted or the first to be euthanized at the shelter. Why should an older dog be left behind?

Dogs live in the present, as today is what's important to them. They don't tend to worry about what's around the next bend in the road. They just want to be happy and loved today! We all know there are no guarantees in life. The quality of time you have with your new companion can matter a great deal more than quantity. Even if you have a senior dog for only a few years, the days you spend together will be precious!

You can give an older dog the best years of his/her life! Won't you please consider providing a loving home to a senior?

Please submit an Online Adoption Application if you are interested in Sammie. It is always the first step in our adoption process.
