Help Samantha find a forever home



Samantha (ID#86787), a lab mix, is currently available for adoption at the Bergen County Animal Shelter, 100 United Lane, Teterboro.  Smart and vivacious, Samantha would be perfect for an active family looking to liven up their home. Offering her belly for belly rubs, this silly gal will instantly put a smile on your face. Samantha has easily become one of the volunteer favorites. She came to the shelter because she was not getting along with another dog. Although her history states she is not great with other dogs, she presented well with other dogs here. But we are still wary and would like to try to re-home her to a single dog household just to be on the safe side. Playful and full of energy, she will need plenty of physical and mental stimulation. Walks, runs, hikes are all great ways to incorporate physical activity and an opportunity to bond. Because this smart cookie has a good head on her shoulders, more advanced training is recommended so her mind can be put to work. Samantha will undoubtedly wow you, (as she has wowed us), if not by her adorable underbite, then by her extremely charming personality. Come grab her while she’s hot.

For more information, call 201-229-4600. Hours for adoption are 1 to 5 p.m. every day, including weekends. The shelter is closed on Mondays for adoption and is open on Thursdays from 1 to 7:30 p.m.. There are also many other adoptable animals that can be seen at the shelter’s website>. In addition, many local towns have a Patch website where the shelter’s animals are featured.
