Facts about Angel

  • Breed: Samoyed
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female

Angel is a big sponge for attention from her humans, but other animals - not at all. She wants her home to be hers and hers alone and that's fine. We know there's a family or an individual out there that would like nothing more than to dote over this little Sammie QUEEN Bee. Actually she's not that little so if you're looking for a lap dog size YOU are on the wrong page! Angel weighs around 70# and is a big boned gal with lots of great muscle tone now. Incoming she was just a flabby out-of-shape fur-ball.

Oh what a love-bug she is, any and all the attention you can share is fine by Angel but she's also one to get into mischief if you doze off on the couch. So preferably we'd love an adopter who is really outdoorsy, maybe a couple who likes to hike or bike the hills & dales of the great outdoors on weekends. Tired dogs are less likely to get into mischief, you know.

At home or at a campsite we highly recommend a SUPER secure place for her food bag otherwise this Love-bug is going to help herself. At her fosters she managed to get the door open to the pantry closet and consumed more than her allotted ration for a couple days.. So much for the diet cooperation, eh!?!

Her coat was shaved down before coming to us and is growing in nicely but when you meet her she is not all fluffy as you may anticipate. Within just a few more months Angel is going to blossom into a beautiful sparkling Sammy girl and if you don't grab her fast, she's going to be gone.

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.
