This handsome fella was found as a stray in San Antonio. Roman is estimated to be 3 years old and weighs about 50lbs, but he is a little underweight currently. Poor Roman was very confused and not doing well at the shelter. His first few days were touch and go - you could tell he wanted love, but he was just so scared. He was also covered in hundreds of ticks that had left wounds all over his body. Thanks to his foster family, he is making wonderful progress, and his fun personality is starting to show! This boy is a typical Chow - stubborn to a tee and can't be forced to do anything he doesn't want to do. He absolutely loves butt scratches and will lean against you when you really find a good spot. Roman has met an older female dog so far and did really well, but we are taking it slow and letting him adjust. Cats are a no for this pup - he thinks they are really fun to chase! Roman is currently being fostered in Austin.
Milo came to us from a well meaning owner who had never owned a Chow before and wasn't quite prepared for what that entails. He is about 2 years old and 55lbs. He was only with his previous owner for a couple of weeks, but during that time he displayed protective/guarding tendencies (growling/snarling at strangers who approached the family). Milo snapped at a young child in the home (who was described as high energy), so we do recommend no children. Milo is a happy boy who is basically a young, high energy puppy in the body of a 50+lb adult dog. He has been working hard with our behaviorist to learn manners. He is a smart boy, but he gets distracted very easily! Milo will need a savvy owner who can dedicate time, structure, and patience toward helping him be the best dog he can be. He is being fostered about a half hour north of Houston.
This handsome guy is about 1.5 years old and came to us as a stray. It’s clear that Robbie was not socialized properly as a pup. He gets very overstimulated when meeting people for the first time and can be a bit intimidating while doing so. Once you get past the initial meeting and he learns you are safe, Robbie is such a wonderful dog. He loves to run and play and get pets! He is a fence fighter, another sign of overstimulation - meaning he tends to run up and down the fence or other boundary marker barking at passers by. He would do best in a calm, Chow savvy home with structure, continued training, consistency, and no children. Robbie is being fostered about a half hour north of Houston.
