Campbell (I'd call her Camie) is approximately 3.5 years old, spayed, UTD with vaccines, Micro-chipped, house and crate trained.
Camie's owners are truly heartbroken to make the decision they need to find a new home for their Samoyed. But, truth of the matter is serious time consuming health issues and major physical limitations can and do dictate exactly what we humans can physically handle in life. Having a young high energy, mischievous dog, in need of direction and training, can get lost in the humans day-to-day shuffle of endless medical forms, doctors appointments, and hospital trips.
Before anyone assumes that Camie was neglected, she wasn't! Totally the opposite, Camie is a deeply loved and horribly spoiled little Sammy girl as a result. Instead of correcting negative behaviors Camie was hugged, loved, and given treats. Camie has long since forgotten all of her good manners and needs to have an un-distracted owner who will gently remind her of what is and isn't acceptable. Although Camie shares a home with an older male Sammy, we would prefer she be the only pet as she has learned to be a bully and on a couple of occasions Camie really took into her housemate but did not draw blood.
Yearly vetting, incidental needs, grooming appointments and daily meals have all been very timely attended.
