Samantha Harris Shines Spotlight on Homeless Dogs

Samantha Harris, who will soon be seen as the host of the new NBC reality series Stars Earn Stripes, earned a gold star from dog devotees for helping two tiny tail-waggers in their search for a forever family on Access Hollywood‘s monthly pet adoption segment.

Dubbed ‘Kiefer’ and ‘Sutherland’ by the staff at Best Friends Animal Society in Los Angeles, the closely-bonded five-year-old brother and sister pair of charming Chiweenies (Chihuahua/Dachshund) lapped up the limelight during their stay on the set, much like the other adorable adoptables who have landed starring roles in the lives of pet parents thanks in part to such high-profile personalities asĀ Carrie Ann Inaba, Lucy Lawless and Daisy Fuentes, who all promoted their potential on the entertainment news program. Since the start of Access Hollywood’s pet adoption day just over one year ago, all have found homes but one– German Shepherd mix Jackson Shade, who enjoyed a moment in the spotlight alongside Joey Lawrence in May 2012.
