ADOPTED!! -Balto


An adotable dog in Arlington Heights, IL

  • Young
  • Large
  • Male

Hi everyone! My name is Balto. I am a one year old Samoyed. My foster mom picked me up from the shelter, it wasn't very nice there. But I love my foster home and family!
I love to play with my foster brother and sister (also Sammies) and I'm working on my manners. Foster mom is taking me to classes so I learn to be more of a gentleman. I love going on walks and oh yeah, I LOVE to play. Playing with toys and playing fetch are my favorite hobbies.
If you are looking for a younger, energetic Sammie, I may be the one for you!!
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. Please serious inquires only!! We only want to best home for our Sammies!! Thanks for your understanding!!
