The meaning of Ike’s name is “he will laugh” or “laughter,” which perfectly describes this handsome, charming and friendly 1-year-old Dalmatian mix. Ike wears a permanent smile on his face and always looks like he has just told the best joke ever and can’t stop laughing! He is a sweet, happy, energetic dog who loves to interact with people, greeting everyone with a wagging tail, a wiggling body, a few kisses, and of course, a big smile. This snuggly guy solicits attention by nuzzling your side or rubbing his nose against your hand; Ike loves to be smooched on and returns the favor wholeheartedly. He enjoys going on walks and hikes and he likes other dogs, although he seems to be more interested in kissing dogs than playing with them. Ike is very playful — tag, hide-and-seek, tug-of-war, chasing balls around the yard, and chewing rope toys are some of his favorite activities. When the sprinklers go off, Ike tries biting the water as it sprays out of the heads and is totally oblivious that he is getting soaked. He also likes to cool off by lying flat on his belly with his legs stretched out behind him. Ike is a smart guy who knows basic commands, walks well on a leash and does well on car rides. Ike is also a fan of treats, which for him includes hot dogs. Ike will make a perfect companion to someone who is active but also happy to spend time snuggling with him.

Sam Walton and his heirs are, by all accounts, some of the richest people in America and for that matter in the world. So saying, “Sam you’re the man” is not an understatement.
