Hi everyone! My name is Dicara. I'm a female Samoyed, about 13 years old. But that doesn't mean I'm too old to find a new forever home! I am good with dogs, crate trained, house trained, and I love to take walks.
I do have some arthritis in my back legs and I like to stay on the carpet, tile is slippery under my feet!! My foster mom gives me something called glue-co-sa-ma-ma-mine or something like that for my arthritis. I'm also a little tubby, so foster mom says no table scraps and I'm working on losing weight (aren't we all??)
I love car rides and sleeping in the bedroom with my foster mom and dad. I just love being by everyone. I was adopted out when I was younger and due to my mom's circumstances, I came back to NISA last year. Are you my new forever home?? Please contact NISA if you think you might be!

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!!
