Facts about Bella

  • Breed: Samoyed
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
This sweet beauty came to NISA because her owner went into assisted living where dogs are not welcome. She's up-to-date (UTD) on her vaccinations, spayed, house trained and very social. After spending two years at a boarding kennel Bella craves human interaction, she's also playful with male dogs and previously lived with another female. She needs lots of exercise and would benefit greatly from a formal obedience class using positive reinforcement. If you have a fenced yard and lots of energy to keep up with Bella, this is the dog for you.

We Do Not know if Bella has been around small children or kitty cats. Also,
Bella is fostered in the Champaign, IL area which is where APPROVED adopters would need to go to meet her.

Adoptions are limited to Illinois and surrounding states due to the transportation concerns. We will NOT airship any dogs, for any reason. We are also unable to pay or provide transportation. If you live outside the IL and surrounding state area and are interested in adopting one of our Samoyeds, please realize we require the potential adopters to meet the dog in the Illinois area, depending on where that particular dog is being fostered.

About Northern Illinois Samoyed Assistance

About Our Rescue Group...

Northern Illinois Samoyed Assistance Inc. became official in 1995, however it's purpose and goals began many years ago with the relocation of the first Samoyed in 1984.

The principle goal of N.I.S.A. is to save healthy, good natured Samoyeds from unnecessary euthanasia through shelters of un-caring humans. N.I.S.A. is a complete support group, whether you just acquired your first puppy, adopted from a local shelter, or acquired your Sammie through N.I.S.A. Counseling on behavior, grooming, general health, obedience classes, and more are available to any "Proud Samoyed owner".

Our Adoption Process...

Download our application here:

To be considered for adoption you must submit a completed application including a $25.00 (non-refundable) application fee, provide three required references and allow a NISA representative to visit your residence. The adoption committee will review all reports and determine if an applicant is approved or denied.
(NISA reserves the right to deny any application).

There is a separate adoption fee for the actual adoption of one of our Samoyeds. That helps to cover the cost of vaccinations, medical issues, spay/neuter, grooming, and other necessary expenses.

It is NISA's mission to find the best suitable home for each available Samoyed. This is achieved by knowing the personalities and quirks of each Samoyed and matching them to the most qualified applicant. Understandably this is not a speedy process, therefore we ask applicants to be patient. NISA is governed by an all-volunteer staff. Volunteers have family, employment, and personal commitments in addition to the time they donate to help the less-fortunate Samoyed.
