|Rescue Me ID: 16-01-16-00225Oso (Referral) (male)|
Oso is a 9-year-old male black/red Doberman-Chow Chow mix (or so we believe) at around 75# who has been with us since he was 11 months old. We rescued Oso when we were single and childless and have since added 4 very active children to our lives. Oso loves these kids so much that he won't let anyone near them that he's not familiar with, thus why we feel the need to re-home him to someone experienced with large dogs (the kids really would like to have friends over now and then). Oso is housebroken, listens very well, knows sit, down, come,and get-in-your-bed. He is smart, attentive, playful, and very fit. Oso has quite a lot of energy (especially since he's a senior boy) but a couple of good walks a day or some time playing ball in the yard and he'll happily nap the rest of the day away. He is your typical velcro dobe, but does very well while we are away at work. He loves to be with his people and is content with being petted with his head in your lap or cuddling with you on the couch. He is always glad to see you, even if you just went out for 5 minutes. He has not had any accidents in all the time he's been with us. He does tend to counter surf and trash-dive if given the opportunity. He's doing very well with a citronella collar with remote to help deter the behavior. He's very content with a tennis ball, chew bone, or other toy to keep him occupied during the day. If you ask him where his ball his, he'll run and get it, ready to play fetch and catch! He loves to swim as well. He currently lives with a female dog who is smaller and much older. She rules the roost so we'd highly recommend another large dominant-type dog in the home. He does quite well when boarded or in daycare with other large, playful dogs. We wouldn't recommend other small animals (ferret, hamster, etc.) as he has a very high prey drive. Oso is currently on a raw diet and has a beautiful coat and bright eyes - you'd likely never know he's a senior. Everyone who meets him says how 'magnificent' and 'beautiful' he is. He also receives a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement to combat any early arthritis. He was abandoned to a rescue at 11 mos with a fracture of the right hip, when we rescued him. He only shows signs of wear and tear on that hip after a long run (30-60 mins+). He also rides well in the car, walks nicely on his leash, and does well with bathing/grooming. He's quick to alert us if someone is at the door, but isn't a barker otherwise. Oso would do best with someone who is home more than away. He would make a great companion for a retired couple or a stay-at-/work-from-home mom/dad (of older kids). Due to his highly protective nature, he should not be in a home with young children. He has a major issue with our mail lady and nipped her arm at our door recently. In a house with adults, this wouldn't be an issue, as his protective nature has come on strong only since the kids have come along. He is neutered, microchipped, heartworm-negative, and current on his vaccines. He will arrive to your home with his crate, toys, bed, food, supplements, and a small stipend to cover his adoption costs.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-09-12-00569Gus (male)|
UPDATE: GUS IS IN BOARDING. PLEASE, SOMEONE STEP UP TO FOSTER HIM. LET'S FIND HIM A HOME BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS! This is Gus, a shepherd/chow/lab mix. He's around 4 years old and a bit overweight - now on a diet. He came to us from TX and is in boarding. We would love to find him a forever home, but if that is not possible, a foster home would be a great start. He is dog-selective so it would be better to be the only animal in the home or to have a meet-and-greet with the resident dog ahead of time. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He's wonderful with humans and just wants to be loved. It broke my heart to have to leave him in boarding. As I was driving away, I saw him looking after my car as he whined. Will you please give this big, beautiful boy a chance? (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Chow Chow in Illinois|
Chow Chow Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Chow Chow is a big furry breed whose name literally means Puffy Lion Dog. Chow Chows are loyal companion animals but can sometimes be stubborn, obstinate, and overprotective against strangers. Chow chows need to be handled by a firm master. Chow chows can be aggressive with other pets but most are good with kids. Chow chows can live in an apartment and are equally good as inside or outside dogs. Daily walks help stave off behavior problems, although Chow Chows can be resistant to exercise.
