Jewish Dog of the Month: Sammy!

by Sarah Brennan / March 27, 2019


Sarah: What is your name?

Sammy Ruth.

Sarah: Where did your name come from?

Sammy: I’m originally from North Carolina, but my mom and dad took me in after I was rescued from a hoarding situation.

Sarah: What is your favorite way to spend a day in DC?

Sammy: I love meeting other dogs and sniffing their bums. I also love watching my mom and dad play softball. My favorite thing to do is swim, especially at the Shirlington Dog Park. I’m not very coordinated on land, but in the water I’m a doggy olympian.


Sarah: What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?

Sammy: People tell me that I’m so pretty all the time. I know people check me out when I’m walking around Arlington with my owners. I’m a catch and I know it.

Sarah: What is your favorite thing to do when you think no one is looking?

Sammy: Eat trash off the street. It’s the best!

Sarah: Who is your best friend?

Sammy: My dad. He wrestles with me, which is so much fun!

Sarah: What is your spirit animal?

Sammy: A sloth, I’m super lazy.

Sarah: What’s your favorite Jewish holiday and why?

Sammy: Passover. I really like the yummy fish we get to eat!
