More About Chow Chow Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei (short coat). Jagger is a handsome 60 lb tanned Horse coat male approximately 5 years old. He came into rescue extremely unsocialized, and grossly underweight, but has since gained 10 lbs and four wrinkles. With time patience and persistence, we've gained his trust, and now this happy boy is eager to please his humans. Jagger will sit, give paw and walk well on his leash. Currently he's living with other shar pei's who have taught him his new favorite pass time...playing. He's recovering nicely from entorpian surgery, and will be available for adoption after his follow up visit next week. His front legs are bowed likely a result of neglect, but he's his sweet face and charming personality make up for it. Jagger never wants to starve for food or attention again. His forever home should be understanding, patient and give this boy everything a good dog needs and deserves...care and love. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We only respond to serious inquiries.

      Posted Breed: Chow Chow (medium coat). This is a Courtesy Post only Nawla is a young, 3 year old red female weighing approximately 50 lbs. A typical sweet low maintenance Chow Chow. Nawla is happiest when she's outdoors whether it be on a nice long walk where she can show off her good leash manners, or a ride in the car. Alternately, she is quite content to laze around the back yard. Nawla also has good house manners, stays off the furniture, doesn't beg for food or bark unnecessarily. Like any good chowette, she guards her people, and anyone else once they've won her trust. For those lucky enough to be accepted by this little girl, she'll expect the occasional belly rub and brief cuddle. Not a lover of toys, cats or competition, Nawla would rather be the only fur-baby in her new home. Nawla's looking for a forever companion to keep her safe, and in return she'll love and protect you back. Spayed and up to date on shots.
