URGENT CASE (1st January 2018) :
LOKI is a nearly 3yr old Male Sammy. Loki is in a foster home at the moment as we have been assessing him and have also had him neutered.
This poor boy has not had the best start in life due to being abused in his first year. He then went on to another home then passed on again. In total he has had 4 homes in his short life.
Loki needs a home without young children. He does get along with other dogs but preferably a little girlie Sammy would be good.
He loves your attention and cuddles but can be stubborn.
If you can give Loki the home he really derserves then please call one of the rescue numbers.
Linda Brasier. Chief Rescue Officer.
A quick assesment from his foster home :
In the weeks that we have had Loki his faith in human nature seems to have returned. He loves a cuddle on the sofa and also enjoys interacting with you. He is a playful lad loving to fetch and return a ball. At night he has been sleeping in a crate in our room and we don't hear a peep out of him. He does love to take teddy to bed with him.
I took him into the salon very shortly after Dave got him he loves to be groomed and was not fased by the hydrobath or dryers. Now that he has been neutered regular grooming is a must as his coat will thicken out.
We put him straight onto a raw diet which he loves, if his new owners could keep this up he would truly benefit from it for health and temperament. With reference to his temperament, he does not like to be told off, especially by a woman. If I chastise him for barking he will grumble but has never followed through. He is obedient and will sit and lie down on command.
He has interacted with Cooper our neutered rescue and they play endlessly. We have had the Samoyed girls round and again he loves to play with them. He is very good on a lead and loves to travel in a crate in the van with our other Sams.
When someone comes forward for him, I really would like them to come and see Loki at ours, so they can see what he is like in a 'home' environment. I would hate for someone to take him and not fully understand his behaviour or traits thus ending back up in rescue.
Re his traits... As we have a number of dogs we have to put him in a crate in the lounge when they are all mingling about. He sometimes objects to this and barks impatiently with his head cocked to one side, this can be misconstrued as aggressive but once you go to the crate to tell him to lie down he does obey. Loki can open doors... when we have put him in the garden room he can stand on his back legs and push the lever down on the door. Loki also likes to 'counter surf' the kitchen worktops, so stuff needs to be out of his reach.
We have run him in harness doing bikejour and he does love to run and took well to being out in front.
Update : My thanks to everyone who called regarding re-homing Kobi. The lady who has been fostering him has decided to take him on permenantly. He still needs quite a lot of work and she feels moving him again will only upset all the work that is going into his training. He still has his bad days but is now starting to trust her.
Lets hope this will be his forever home.
Linda Brasier, Chief Rescue Officer.
BAILEY UPDATE - Thanks to everyone who applied to take Bailey on, but he will be going to his new home very soon.

Samoyed Rescue needs YOUR HELP
We are desperately seeking
volunteers to help us re-home Samoyeds across the UK. We are particularly
in need of volunteers who can help transport dogs from their old homes to
their new ones, we usually do this as a relay between volunteers to be as
fair to everyone as we can. If you can help us please take a moment to
fill in our online volunteering form (CLICK
HERE) so that we can add your name to the list and build up our
network of willing volunteers.
It is always advisable to contact a
reputable breeder before considering the purchase of a puppy. Please
go to the "Puppy" page on the main Samoyed Association site for
further information. Please click here.
BEWARE OF SCAMS
: We have recently been made aware of sellers
offering "free" Samoyed puppies on classified
advertisement sites such as Gumtree, but charging delivery fees of
£150 via COURIER !
: Samoyed pups are
advertised for sale on the internet. You have to call a number and
you are asked for your bank details, they say that they will deliver
your dog to you. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS AS IT IS A
SCAM and your Bank details will be used.
these scams and only purchase puppies from reputable sources, or even
better, consider a Rescue dog from a recognised animal
How NOT to
place a Dog on Rescue :
Recently a male Samoyed was tied up and
left (dumped) at one of our Foster homes, near Peterborough.
The lady came home to find the dog tied to her paddock gate with a note
attached to his collar, it read " My name
is Sammy and I am nice..."
was taken to a groomer to get him cleaned up and make him look as
special as he deserves.
The people fostering him have decided that as he is such a special boy
that they will keep him and give him the loving home he needs. So we
have a happy end to this story, but the Samoyed Association Rescue
NEVER turn a Samoyed away and all
anyone needs to do is call one of the Rescue telephone numbers on our
need help in re-homing a Samoyed DO NOT DO IT
THIS WAY, just call and we will do
our best to help.
Linda and her team would like to take
this opportunity to thank all those who have called regarding rehoming
