Thelma's Story...
AVAILABLE 12/15/12-We will be in Yorkville Illinois awaiting our forever families

Hi Everyone,

We are Thelma and Louise and we are 10 month old pure bred Finnish Lapphund babies looking for our forever homes.

We are the sweetest babies around. We love attention. We love children and other animals. We are very social and love to get attention from those that we love.

We would like nothing more than to find families who love us as much as we love them.

We will come (spayed, vaccinated, micro chipped, fecal, heart worm tested if age appropriate, flea and tick prevented, dental if needed, a free vet visit and medical insurance. What more could a new family ask for?

We will not be available to go home until 12/15. We are fostered out of state but once approved you may choose to reserve/pre-adopt one of us!!


The Finnish Lapphund is a very intelligent and active breed. Finnish Lapphunds take well to training due to their intelligence. Some owners and fanciers claim that "Lappies" even have the ability to think through actions first. Although small in number worldwide, a noticeable number of Finnish Lapphunds have excelled in activities such as obedience trials, agility, herding trials, and pet therapy.

The breed is friendly and alert, and makes a good watch dog, due to its tendency to bark at unfamiliar things. The breed was originally used to herd reindeer by droving, and barking helped it to be distinguished from wolves. Even when not herding, the Finnish Lapphund tends to bark with a purpose, and more rare cases of problem barking can normally be controlled by training.

The breed makes the ideal outdoor companion. It is active, cold-proof, and water-proof, and will gladly accompany people on walking or running trips. It is one of two breeds permitted to live outdoors in Finland.

Lappies are ideal choice for a family with small children. This is a very friendly breed and it normally avoids and flees from threatening situations. The breed is very curious, however, so some watching after them is necessary.

Please contact for an adoption application.

Our Adoption Donation is $395.00 each.

Thank you for considering us.

Please come and rescue us!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thelma, a Oswego Finnish Lapphund/Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Finnish Lapphund/Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Oswego, or seeking a Finnish Lapphund/Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) puppy from a breeder in Oswego.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oswego already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oswego breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Finnish Lapphund/Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Finnish Lapphund/Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oswego paves the way for another one to be saved.
