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.

      Location: Prescott, ON
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei (short coat). Show stopper Maddie is a tall, gorgeous young brindle shar-pei...possible mix. The possible mix is solely based on her unique markings and silky soft coat. At approx. 2 yrs old, Maddie is still in playful-puppy mode. Full of happy energy, she loves to run as much as she enjoys tossing around her squeaky toys. This sweet friendly girl meets people with enthusiasm always hoping to make new friends, human and canine. Currently she is residing with three other dogs both male and female and previously lived with children 5 years and older. It's already clear she wants to please her people and is eager to learn new things such as leash manners. She's still working on that but has sit, paw and lay down mastered. She has so much to learn and looks forward to advance training with her new family. Maddie's owner surrendered her due lack of time and care for her health. It's clear she was never taken out for a walk as this is super exciting and completely foreign experiences for her. We are working hard to clear up her painful and uncomfortable skin issues and are seeing a huge improvement already. She is now on a grain free diet, takes a thyroid pill daily, and may require daily allergy medication as well (to be determined) . Maddie is UTD on shots, micro chipped, and spay. “Maddie Long Legs” is just realizing how beautiful she is and enjoying all the positive attention. Maddie is looking for a happy home where someone is willing to spend time walking, jogging and socializing with her. Maddie's new home should be active and include her as a family member... not just a dog. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We only respond to serious inquiries.

      Breed: Chow Chow

      Posted Breed: Chow Chow (medium coat). ***ADOPTED*** Bowie would be a perfect companion dog. Bowie is a little red female who's fox-like in size and shape. This petite chow is an exceptional girl who's already lived a tough hard life. She's survived the last four years outside in all types of weather in northern Ontario tied to a chain. Surprisingly she is trusting and hugely affectionate. She craves attention, to be touched and loved. She'll sit by your feet or curl up beside you on the sofa just to be close. Bowie's learning quickly the luxuries of being an inside dog. She doesn't know any basic commands like sit or stay but she walks easily on leash. (no pulling) Bowie needs a person who will show her she's worth giving attention too. Someone who will hug her, keep her warm and close, walk her and never tie her out again. Bowie qualifies for a reduced adoption fee. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We only respond to serious inquiries.
