A Best Friends Angels Rest Pet Memorial


2013 – 2023

Samantha came to us as a rescue in 2013. She grew up with 2 "sisters" who showed her the ropes. As the years went by, her 2 sisters passed away. Samantha was now a single dog. It took her awhile to get used to being alone, but it didn't take long for her to shine. Samantha became the sweetest, gentlest, kind and friendly German Shepherd you would ever find. She loved everyone, and everyone loved her. Unfortunately, Samanatha was born with bad hips, and as the years went by, at 10 years old, her dysplasia caused her back legs to get twisted when she walked. My husband and I loved Samanatha so much. We also put her up on a pedestal. She was the best at everything. Losing Samantha was a huge loss to us. No one could ever replace her. Rest in Peace my sweet girl.

We believe in honoring the lives of pets
Here at Best Friends, animals have such a special place in our lives. We honor those pets we’ve loved and those who need our help today. At Best Friends, we keep pets in our hearts


Leaving a personal story, memory, or words of support for a pet’s family is a heartfelt way to pay tribute and provide comfort. As part of your remembrance, we also invite you to leave a virtual token along with your words — similar to our tradition here at the Sanctuary of leaving stones, beloved items, or small toys on the graves of cherished animals.
I remember having dinner on the patio at the Cove and how quiet she stayed. She was such a treasure. Glad that we got to meet her.

When I think of Samantha:
Playing ball with Sierra in your back yard. She never tired of the game.
How much she loved Sierra & her family
Her long legs!
Her sweet gentle spirit
Her beautiful face

She really was a very special girl! I love you Samantha. 💗
