Meet New York’s favourite pooch! Samson the dood is hottest dog
A delightful dog named Samson the Dood is Instagram’s GOLDEN pet of the moment.
The Goldendoodle – a golden retriever cross poodle – is New York’s favourite Instagram pooch, with more than 60,000 followers ogling over the fluff bomb.
Samson’s social media page features him among the Big Apple’s most iconic sights, partying with pals and cuddling his toy bear named Bea.
Like all New York hipsters, Samson enjoys rooftop bars and having brunch with his furry friends.
The gorgeous pup boasts reality star Lauren Conrad as a fan and has attended plush events sponsored by Coach and Veuve Clicquot.
His owner Jessica, who lives in Brooklyn with her husband Alex, said: “It’s funny when we are out in certain areas of New York – he always seems to get recognised.
“He’s super social so can get along with all types of dogs which makes it really fun for us and he’s super smart which also makes him highly trainable.
“I think one of his greatest joys is getting to play with other dogs so we always make a big effort for him to enjoy hanging with his friends and in return we’ve made some great friends out of it. Samson is amazing as a pet.”
Medical resident Jessica, 31, adopted the Goldendoodle as a puppy in April 2014 from a breeder in Ontario, Canada.
She added: “I didn’t want my friends and family to get annoyed with all my photos of Samson which is why we started the Instagram account so they could choose to follow him if they wanted.
“I think it got popular because he lives in Brooklyn so people get a glimpse of his city life.
“I like to add a human aspect to him which I think makes him relatable to everyone. He loves good food, travel and fun plus he’s intelligent, athletic and social.”
Jessica is aware Samson’s new found fame is likely to bring lots of business opportunities.
She said: “We’ve been contacted by brands for advertising but we don’t do a lot, only the brands of things we would use and believe in.
“One of my main goals is to keep his feed as authentic as possible but if a cute dog can help bring attention to a great campaign – I’m all for it.”
