Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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, ... (Read More)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.
