Facts about Campbell

  • Breed: Samoyed
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female


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.

Adoptions are limited to Illinois and surrounding states due to transportation concerns. We will NOT airship any dogs, for any reason. We are also unable to pay for or provide transportation. If you live outside IL and the 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 dog is being fostered. Please serious inquiries only!! We want the best homes for our Sammies!! Thanks for your understanding!

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.
