Right now I’m a typical ball of fluff puppy who is smart, brave, curious and joyous. I’m sure to bring a smile to your face (or the face of anyone that meets me). I’ve not met a treat, food, human, cat, dog or anything that I haven’t liked.
I’ve learned so much since joining my foster family. We are working on crate training and getting on a good potty training schedule. I don’t have much experience with leash training so a fenced yard would be appreciated. I sleep through the night in my kennel too! I am a very smart puppy and do require my forever family to attend training with me BEFORE adoption. Please read the info below.
My foster mom likes to squish my fluffy face and tells me I am the best puppy ever! I am full of puppy energy and ready for adventures. I hope to meet you soon!
PLEASE READ: Chow Chows are a unique breed and have a reputation of being headstrong, independent, and strong-willed. They don’t always feel the need to be around people so training early in life is important to form a bond. Early and continued socialization and training can help discourage territorial or unwanted behavior. These dogs are not the best fit for a first-time dog parent since they require more time and work when it comes to their training. Additionally, an adopter needs to commit 10-15 minutes of DAILY brushing to maintain their coat. The coat is maintained by brushing, not shaving. To get off on the right foot, Underdog Rescue is asking adopters to collaborate on a training and socialization plan that will need to be completed BEFORE adoption so you are prepared to raise a kind-hearted and well-behaved dog.
*I’m a growing puppy and I have not yet had a lot of experience with crates, kids or cats and I might bark if something alarms me, but I really love to learn and hoping for a family who will take me to a basic obedience class to continue to help me build confidence and dog skills. Ideally my forever home would need to be home during the day to help me with my potty training and not leave me for breaks longer than 3 - 4 hours. If you are looking for a best friend, please fill out the puppy application. The more info you include on the application the better so I can find a good match for my forever home. Get your toy box ready!
**Obedience classes are required when adopting this puppy from Underdog Rescue. Many of our puppies have a mama who was not properly socialized before coming to Underdog Rescue. Since coming to Underdog, this puppy has been in a socialized and loving home, but that needs to be continued with its Adopters. Training classes teach puppies the ins and outs of being a pet while creating a bond with their new Adopter. Obedience classes are key to creating a relationship with your puppy while having it be a happy and successful member of society. Proof of Obedience Class registration is required for this puppy before adoptions can be finalized. If you would like some suggestions, we would be happy to send some trainers who have experience with Underdog Rescue, but a Basic Obedience class in your area should work!
