Lovely Samantha has found her forever home.

*** voir texte en français plus bas ***

7 year old female, spayed/vaccinated

Samantha is a female Pyrenees mix who is a lovely, affectionate lady. She came from a humane society originally who had to give her to rescue because they couldn't afford to treat her skin issue, so her past is a bit foggy.

She is loving with her family and makes new human friends very easily, relishing any attention. She's indifferent to cats and gets along with them very well, however she is choosy about her canine friends and will growl if growled at first. She gets along just fine with calm dogs, including a golden-doodle we've seen on a few walks. She would adapt well as an only dog with or without cats or with another friendly, relaxed dog. She's also been fine with older kids so far, loving the attention from our neighbour's 11 year old grandson and several kids of the same age around our house.

Inside the house, she's actually very quiet! In 5 days, she has not barked once. She's not much of a guard dog, but it does make her a candidate for an apartment or townhouse, especially considering her low activity level. She is crate-trained and house-trained and knows "sit" and "shake paw". Her list of known commands is limited but she's a very well behaved, low energy dog in the house regardless. If there's nothing going on, she often just sleeps or at least pretends to. She loves being in the same room as you and will follow you everywhere.

On the leash, she's fairly good, walking beside you for as often as she can. She can get distracted by smells on trees and pull a little to get to them, but otherwise is very good most of the time. She will notice squirrels but she doesn't pull to run after them. She's a bit slow due to her weight, and maybe age too, so we walk at her pace. She's definitely not a jogging companion dog, but loves leisurely walks of about 20-40 minutes as long as there are a few stops for a rest on longer walks.

She requires medication for her thyroid and is a bit overweight, but there are no other major health concerns. She has a skin irritation that Dr. Carol Graham has provided medication for and it should be cleared up in a couple of weeks.

She has one milky blue eye which she can still see out of, but maybe not as well as the clear eye. Dr. Graham found no concern with that eye, so it just gives her a very distinctive look when she's looking at you lovingly asking to get a belly rub or an ear scratch.

In general, she's just a wonderful, gentle, loving dog.

femelle de 7 ans, opérée/vaccinée

Samantha est une femelle croisée montagne des Pyrénées qui est très aimable et affectueuse. Ce chien nous a été transféré d?un groupe de sauvetage d?animaux qui ne pouvait plus s?occuper d?elle en raison de ses problèmes de peau alors nous avons peu d?information sur son passé. Elle aime beaucoup les humains de sa famille d?accueil et se fait très facilement de nouveaux amis humains, elle qui est toujours en quête d?attention. Elle est plutôt indifférente aux chats et s?accommode bien de leur présence. Cependant, elle est plus difficile au niveau de ses fréquentations canines et va répliquer en grognant si un chien lui grogne après. Elle s?entend bien avec les chiens calmes, comme par exemple un golden-doodle que nous croisons lors des promenades. Elle saurait s?adapter à une famille avec ou sans chats, et sans autre chien ou avec un chien calme et bien socialisé. Elle s?end bien avec les enfants du voisinage qui ont autour de 11 ans.

Dans la maison, c?est une chienne très silencieuse! En 5 jours jusqu?ici, nous ne l?avons jamais entendue japper. Elle n?est pas très gardienne, ce qui en fait une bonne candidate pour la vie en ville ou même en appartement, surtout si on tient compte de son tempérament très calme. Elle est entraînée en cage et propre dans la maison. Elle connaît les commandes « assis » et « donne la patte » en anglais (« sit » et « shake paw »). Bien qu?elle connaisse peu de commandes, c?est une chienne qui a peu d?énergie et se comporte très bien dans la maison. Elle passe la majeure partie de son temps à dormir ou à « faire semblant » de dormir. Elle aime beaucoup être dans la même pièce que les humains et à donc tendance à suivre partout dans la maison.

En laisse, elle est assez bonne. Elle marche à côté nous le plus souvent possible. Elle se laisse parfois distraire par certaines odeurs sur les arbres et tire légèrement pour s?y rendre, mais autrement elle est très bonne la majorité du temps. Elle remarque les écureuils, mais ne tire pas pour courir après eux. Elle est un peu lente à cause de son poids, et peut-être aussi de son âge alors on marche à son rythme. Ce n?est définitivement pas un chien avec lequel faire du jogging, mais elle apprécie les promenades de 20-40 minutes en autant qu?elle peut s?arrêter ici et là si les marches sont longues.

Elle a besoin de médicaments pour la thyroide et présente un léger surplus de poids, mais n?a pas d?autres problèmes de santé. Pour ce qui est de son problème de peau, Carol m?a fourni des médicaments qui devraient régler le problème d?ici quelques semaines. Elle a un ?il bleu laiteux, duquel elle peut voir malgré tout, mais peut-être pas aussi bien qu?un ?il normal. Carol ne s?inquiète pas pour cet ?il, alors ça lui fait tout simplement un look unique, quand elle nous regarde affectueusement en demandant de se faire flatter la bedaine ou gratter derrière les oreilles.

En résumé, c?est tout simplement une merveilleuse chienne, gentille et affectueuse.
