Samoyed, Mix

An adotable dog in Downers Grove, IL

  • Adult
  • Large
  • Male

Hi, I'm Tank! I am staying with a shelter volunteer and this is what she says about me: "Tank is a loveable guy with lots of love to go around. He really loves his people and will follow you wherever you go. Petting is his biggest pleasure. He has been free to roam the house when no one is home and has not had any problems. He does like to bring things that remind him of you to where he tends to stay during the day. We are working on the obedience commands but his excitement of being with you over shadows his need to sit or stay. He is a great leash walker and loves to go for long walks, a mile easy. When dogs bark next door, behind fences or along our walks, he just listens for a minute and then continues on his rounds. It is rare to hear him bark. He would do best with people who are home more than away, but he can go 8 hours without any accidents." Where I came from, I did will with other dogs but I have never been exposed to small dogs or cats. I am good with kids, in fact I am just a great all-around dog! As a Samoyed, I do have times when I shed a lot and need to be brushed regularly. If you are interested in setting up a time to meet me in my foster home please submit the Dog Adoption Application from the West Suburban Humane Society website via fax or email. The fax# is 630-960-9604 and the email address is [email protected]. You can find the application here: http://www.wshs-dg.org/resource-center/file-downloads.
