MAGOO

 Meet Magoo!!!!
Magoo is a Chow Chow that has had a rough start. He was rescued from a  kill shelter where he ended up after being picked up by animal control.  Clearly from his behavior he came from a not so great environment. He  was kept outdoors, not stimulated, and beaten. Now he is in rescue and  learning how to be a better pup every day, but could really benefit from  a home all his own. Magoo is looking for someone who is a fan of chows,  understands the breed and has the patience and understanding to  continue helping him through life.
Magoo is estimated to be around 4 years of age, and weighs about 55lbs.  He has come a long way from where he started. He is slow to trust new  people, but is easily encouraged with a tasty snack or a new ball. He is  highly motivated with food as a reward, and will do virtually anything  you ask. Meeting new people comes a lot easier once he has some  motivation. Once he becomes comfortable and you are no longer a  stranger, he turns into quite the character. He loves to get his chest  rubbed, and enjoys his ears being scratched. He will even talk and  grumble at you as he follows you around the house, eagerly awaiting  something good. He loves all toys, but especially loves a ball that he  can squish over and over again! Sometimes he will even throw a toy on  the ground, and roll around on it as he talks to himself. He is such a  quirky guy!
He is leery of new dogs at first but seems to do well with other dogs  once he’s familiar. He may do well in a home without other dogs or maybe  just a smaller pack (1 or 2), so he can continue to learn more social  skills. He doesn’t seem to have issues with other dogs, just more of an  unknown still to him. Like most Chows, smaller animals such as cats or  small dogs are not going to work for Magoo. He enjoys chasing the  squirrels too much, and all things small are fair game to chase as well!  He does well when asked to Leave it, but a home without would be better  for him. Magoo has never been exposed to children, and due to their  loud and demanding nature, a home without kids is preferred.
Magoo responds great to training and is highly motivated to learn. He  knows sit, and walks well on a leash. He is good in his kennel and  doesn’t mind going in for naps or to eat his meals, so leaving him  kenneled while you’re away is no issue! He usually curls up with a bone  and enjoys his alone time while your away. He responds well to vocal  commands over hand signals. Positive reinforcement with patience and  confidence is crucial in continuing the process of emotional healing.
Magoo is special pup who deserves a real chance at life, with someone  who loves and cares about him. He wants so desperately to love and  trust, and has had a hard time, understandably so, up until his life in  rescue. Now, he has learned that people are good, and can give him a  life full of love and adventure. We just need someone now to fulfill  this duty forever by providing a loving home and family. Magoo is fully  vetted, meaning he is microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, neutered  and current on monthly parasite prevention such as flea, tick, and  heartworm.

JAX

Jax is a strikingly handsome 5 year old Chow mix with a great smile, and he has the personality to match! He bonds quickly to people and aims to please; he is happiest being showered with attention. Jax loves to go for walks, ride in cars, and play, play, play! He is a little rough around the edges and will need training to learn commands and boundaries; he can be a little exuberant showing his love and isn’t shy about jumping in your lap! He hasn’t met a person he doesn’t like, and he gets along great with the dogs and cats in his foster home. Jax recently had entropian surgery, but the damage done over the years has left him slightly sight impaired. He can’t see very well from afar and does better up close, but he doesn’t let that slow him down a bit! He is also heartworm positive and is currently undergoing treatment.

ASLAN

Aslan is an active chow mix that is female dog friendly and loves, loves, loves to play and romp. A yard and kids would be great for this energetic 1-2 year old pup. He really likes his playmates and will spend time playing, wrestling and slobbering until worn out.  He has done well in the house and is house trained. Aslan doesn’t stand still long but he likes to come over for petting during his busy play time. He is crated during the work day so he is ready to play when foster mom gets home. Aslan is a funny and silly pup that will make you laugh.
