Samba was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing but in April, 2015, she was chosen for the PADS breeding program. Samba had her maximum of five litters and contributed 30 puppies to training programs at PADS and other ADI schools in North America.  Samba is now retired and living the life of a  pampered pet with her breeder-caretaker family.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of the PADS village — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure that our puppies are healthy and happy. Help support PADS today.
