House with backyard needed, completely fenced preferred - or safe space to run around and play (we are sorry to be one of those rescues that asks for a backyard, but this little guy needs it. In the past we have adopted dogs out to people living in condos or apartments, but we cannot make that exception for Samosa. More details below)
No other dogs at home
No children under 8

Hello hoomans, my name is Samosa and I hail from India. I’m so pumped to be in Canada and I’m currently enjoying the high life with my foster dad. My two favourite things are definitely snuggling and treats. My foster dad tells me I’m the most affectionate dog he’s ever met, and I have to agree! I love snuggling and being as close as possible to humans. I love zooming around and playing fetch with my toys, my favourite ones being the squeaky plush toys, but I’m also a sucker for a good sock. However, I’m also happy to have a nice nap right beside my foster dad.
I LOVE all humans and I’m so happy when I get to meet people that I do a little dance for you involving lots of tail wagging and booty shaking. If you meet me, be prepared for lots of love and licks! I get so excited that sometimes I like to jump up and give love nips, so I think a home without tiny humans under 8 would be best (even though I love them too!).
I currently live in a condo setting, and I see a lot of dogs in common spaces like elevator and lobbies. I also see many dogs on walks. This makes me very nervous. Initially, I am nervous when I meet all dogs. I do not like getting up close and personal to most dogs, especially BIG DOGS. Keep me away from those please, especially in the beginning! I prefer to mind my own business. I need some help to build my confidence in meeting dogs, because with a proper and slow introduction, I do have some hope that I will be ready to sniff butts and play! I’ve had two successes with making dog friends who were the same size as me. My foster dad did this by gradually desensitizing me to his friend’s dogs over a couple of days and allowing us to get comfortable at a distance at first (by giving me treats), and then slowly moving closer the next couple of days. I’m sure he will tell you all about it! I may also need a professional trainer a few times in order to really get the hang of meeting other dogs or at least learning to be OK with them on walks. Because this is the most concerning point for me right now, I need a home with no other dogs, so that I can have a safe space to build my confidence. No cats either, please! I will probably chase them :)
I am fully potty trained, but because I am so scared of other dogs, sometimes I don’t pee on walks, and I really hold it in I would LOVE to have a backyard where I can feel safe from other dogs. A green space that I can call my own. I would also still need to continue going on walks regularly with a very patient pawrent, so I can get really used to everything in Canada.
