Sampson Joshua is a pure bred Maltese (pronounced Mall-tease) who hails from Abbotsford, BC. He is our one breeding male and is the smallest of all our dogs weighing in at a whopping 8.8lbs (4kgs). Because of his small size we wanted to give him the strongest, biggest name we could think of. In the Bible, Sampson was known for his strength and his women. The name "Joshua" means "God is my salvation" and in the Bible he was a strong leader of the Israelites. Both of these names depict power and strength and so our tiny breeding Maltese, "Sampson Joshua", was aptly named!
Sampson is pure white in colour apart from when he decides to roll in PEI's beautiful red dirt after which he closely resembles the famous "PEI Dirt Shirts". He is submissive in nature, playful, eager to please, and loves having his belly rubbed. He is full of personality and wonderful with children and adults, and is sensitive to those who are a bit timid and shy.
One of Sampson's many endearing qualities is the way he loves to play and wrestle with our other dogs, and then turns right around and isn't shy about snuggling up to any of our girls for a nap; He cuddles right in and snoozes away!
