Sam Shepard is undeniably one of our most gorgeous residents. She was found in Santa Paula and taken to the local animal shelter where a wonderful volunteer contacted our founder to check her out. The meeting was set and Sam was as good as adopted. She is true to her breed and one of the most intelligent and loyal pups around, and at 11 months already weighs 92lbs. We don't know too much about her life before she was rescued but she already shows signs of hip displasia and joint issues. Luckily for her, we're on board for whatever she needs in preventative care and any potential surgeries down the road.
For now, she will get to just be a happy puppy. Her best friend is Ruby the pig and they set out everyday to dig as many holes as possible together and snuggle.
