Why Not Me? Meet Samantha!

adoptable black dog Samantha

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes. 


Breed: Boxer Mix

Age/Gender/Size: 10 years/Female/Medium Breed (under 60 lbs)

Likes: Exploring, snuggling and hanging out at the beach

Special Considerations: No kitty cats, steep stairs or elevators please

This 10-year-young boxer mix is waiting to meet you at PAWS (Progressive Animal Welfare Society) in Lynnwood, WA. She has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite! Samantha has been described by her caregivers as a Super Snugglebug, and was most recently deemed “a mushy oatmeal unicorn pony puppy…..” by one of her caregivers. Taking one look at Samantha’s smooshy kisser, we can certainly see the resemblance!

Samantha is a special gal that loves to be with her people. You can count on her following you around the house just to be near you. A home with a rotating schedule would be most ideal for her, so that she can always keep company. Samantha enjoys the company of other mellow dogs, as well as the occasional meet and greet with new furry friends. Samantha is however, all about being the center of attention, and would greatly prefer to receive ALL of your cuddles. She will also need to be in a home with no kitties.

As we all like to say, age is just a number, but sometimes that number does catch up a little with us though. Samantha is 10 years old and has some arthritis on the back end, so stairs can be a struggle for her. Do keep in mind however that elevators provide a very scary experience for Samantha. The staff at PAWS note that she is currently taking joint supplements to help her with weakness & mobility, and pain medication is not necessary. Despite the arthritis, Samantha loves to go on walks, whether it’s around the neighborhood or on an all-out adventure at the beach. As long as she has the opportunity to sniff, explore and meet new people, she is happy as can be!

If you are looking for a furry BFF who loves to lavish you with snuggles and kisses galore, Samantha is your gal! For additional information please visit PAWS online at Like every dog and cat adopted from PAWS, Samantha is fully vetted, spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Come meet your new furry family member today!

Every Wednesday, Healthy Paws will highlight a new pet from Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign. Visit the #WhyNotMePets page for a list of adoptable dogs and cats.
