Description: 

On August 3rd, 2012, Peyton the Samoyed was sent to Vancouver, Canada, to begin his new life. Thank you to everyone who supported Peyton and helped him make the journey to his forever home. We love you and are so happy for you Peyton!

July 14th: Peyton is still waiting, lonesome, wet, and hot up on the hill. He deserves so much better than what has been given to him in life.

June 24th: Peyton is a lovely guy --- but his beautiful white fur is ruined by the mud in his pen, and his wonderfully loving personality is wasted with no one to share it with. Please consider this wonderful dog for your very own personal teddy bear: he won't disappoint!

June 16th: Peyton is still waiting at Asan. It is so hot and Peyton is not very comfortable living outside in the heat 24/7. He needs a cool place to relax and someone to play with, as well. He is a really great dog and deserves the best! Come and meet Peyton at Asan Shelter --- you will fall in love!

May 20th: Today was Peyton's lucky day...He got out for TWO walks! He is so great on his leash and such a pleasure to be around, it's no surprise that he is a favorite at Asan. The summer is hot, though, and with all that fur it would be great if Peyton could curl up in a cool, air-conditioned apartment. Any takers? :)

May 4th: Peyton had a wonderful walk today! He is really great on the leash and always happy to get out of his cage to stretch his legs. Peyton is great with other dogs, good on his leash, and LOVES people. Please give this adorable guy a cool place to sleep this summer.

April 19th: Peyton was neutered last week! Yay, Peyton! He was so excited to get out of his cage for a walk today, and is good spirits despite his missing manhood. I love this dog and so will you --- you just have to meet him and I promise you'll fall in love!^^

April 1st: Peyton was lovely today, as usual. We went for a walk and although he pulls a little on his leash, I think it would be easy to teach him to relax. He loves getting out of his cage, and really, REALLY hates going back in. :( He is so friendly and beautiful, I would love to see him find a foster or adoptive home soon. He's still quite young, and would really benefit from a consistent and loving home where he could learn tricks and play and get all the walks he wants! Mr. Park told me today Peyton will be neutered sometime next week. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of him today because my batteries died, but you can trust me when I say he's looking just as handsome as ever!

March 8th: Peyton was so excited to see people today! He wanted to get of of his cage for a walk so badly, but there wasn't enough time. Peyton was okay though: he settled for some hugs and a belly rub instead. This boy is a people dog all the way, and doesn't deserve to spend his young life cooped up in a cage. Please, please, PLEASE consider fostering or adopting this amazing dog.

Description:

Peyton is a beautiful young male Samoyed who came to Asan from deathrow about a week ago. He is extremely friendly and affectionate, and really, really loves people. Peyton is very eager for affection and attention from everyone, and really hates being in his cage. He doesn't really seem to mind/care about other dogs. He walks well on his leash, and is very happy to spend time with anyone who has it. Peyton is very beautiful; his fur is soft and thick. He would love to have a foster home, but a forever home would be even better!

Please fill out the adoption application form and email it to [email protected] if you are interested in this wonderful dog.

Poor Peyton didn't get a walk today, but he did enjoy some snuggling and a belly rub!

Peyton loves people. He just wants someone to give him lots of love and affection.

I call him the Smiling Sammie because he is just that. I didn't get a chance to walk him myself but another volunteer did so I spent some time with him.

First of all, as is evident, he is SUCH a gorgeous boy - I can't even fathom how someone could give him up.
Second, he is super sweet, and affectionate, and got along with the big dogs and little dogs; in fact he kept trying to hug one of the Jindos.

I asked if he was a good walker, apparently he is, and he knows how to sit. He's on the smaller side for a Sammy and more laid back. He is one of my picks for fostering unless someone else wants to snatch him up!

But question for anyone who has experience; I live in an apartment but love medium sized to large dogs; maybe someone can give me some insight as to how that has worked out? I am very active, with short working hours and live 10 minutes walking distance from work. So giving Peyton love, attention, time, and more than enough exercise is not a problem. But I am worried for the hours during which I'm not home.

Hi Ula! I have a Jindo who is bigger than Peyton, and he does fine in my apartment as long as he gets plenty of exercise. (By plenty, I mean about 1.5 hours before I work in the morning, and about 1.5 hours when I get home from work) This keeps him pretty content while I'm gone, and calm while I'm home as well. I think it would be wise to begin with crating Peyton, since he is a large dog (by Korean standards) and could do plenty of damage if left unsupervised, not to mention it would keep him from having accidents while you're gone and in turn aid with housebreaking. The only thing I would mention, is that I've noticed Peyton barks a lot when he's in his pen at the shelter and wants to get someone's attention. This is not always indicative of how he will behave in a home or during crate training, but it is definitely something to think about. Please make doubly sure that your building manager is 100% on board with you having a dog, and understand that even then there is a chance he may back-pedal if someone complains or if Peyton makes too much noise. Who knows though, a lot of the time it also happens that once a dog is out of the shelter, getting proper exercise, food, and attention, they calm down and become considerably more relaxed. Hope this was helpful. :)

Thanks for the advice Allison! Very helpful! I will double, triple-check with building management. And hopefully he will learn to relax after he gets used to everything. I would definitely crate train and I think even if he barks during the day, it's okay because those are work hours and my neighbours are gone and I am home by 5:00pm everyday.

Ulee, I adopted a sammy about 2 months ago, and he is great in the apartment as long as he gets at least an hour walk in the morning. We just got him a crate about 4 days ago and he is pretty much crate trained already. he never barks in the apartment unless we get him really wound up when we are playing. but i definitely recommend crate training because they are very curious and chewers. we came home more than once to find the usuals like papers, bags, etc all over the place. but we decided to crate him after he ate his second bottle of shampoo, more for his safety than anything else.
what area do you live in? I would love to find another Samoyed for Erik to play with if you are near Yatap/Bundang area

that's great to hear :) i am still debating between several dogs so we'll see what happens; i plan on fostering at the end of this month but i am actually way up in uijeongbu so not so close to u. but thanks for the advice. i do plan on taking him out for at an hour in the morning and more than an hour after work and yes, definitely crate training. so with this in mind, i am going to stop getting scared off of having a large dog in my apt :)

so amazing to hear! yay for peyton! this will make him so much more adoptable :) *fingers crossed*

Sofia, what are your thoughts on bringing him into a home with another young medium-sized male dog, i know he gets along with other dogs, but Asan being so far, what if they turned out to hate each other? I am thinking about bringing my current foster to Asan in awhile to "test the waters" but at the same time, don't want to expose my healthy foster to possible diseases at the shelter....

Peyton is so wonderful. Please consider fostering or adopting him!

Peyton is a little dirty because his cage is full of mud --- but he is still one of the most handsome dogs at Asan!

I love this giant teddy bear!

We're pretty sure we're coming during this long weekend to visit Peyton! If all goes well, we'll be sending you the application to foster him afterwards :)

pictures from the past Saturday @ Asan - Peyton's looking handsome as ever, but the poor furry boy is seriously suffering in the heat. he would love to have a place indoors to cool down, with a family that loves him :) he is such a sweet boy, who walks very well on the leash and is good with people and other dogs.

Peyton is not as big as he looks!~~ With all that fur, he sure looks like a big guy, but really, he's on the smaller side of medium! He is about 87cm long, 65cm tall, and weighs in at about 16kg. He's the perfect size! :)
