Chow Chow Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    He is exceptionally beautiful. Like a small bear, his mouth is black, all of it, so his teeth are bright white and lovely! He has a great smile, and LOVES to run. He is fast, very fast and agile. Still young enough to teach anything too, he already can sit on hand signal and he has only been here a few days since we rescued him from the KILL list for that day at the county shelter. Whew, we saved this wonderful little guy at the last minute! Good thing too cause he is fab! Stunning to look at. Good inside the house, crate trained. NOT good on leash (only harness). He was found with a chain around his neck that was rusted on, had to be cut ... (Read More)off and was almost too tight, had he not been thin.........He has obviously been chained to a tree and forgotten, then let off (they had to cut the other end) and let free, they did not even bother to take the remaining chain off his neck, he was still growing.....ugh. Anyway, good news is, he is free from that, getting lots of hugs and recovering nice. (Less)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Say hello to Tiny! I'm Tiny, well yes I am a little girl at 35 pounds but Tiny is my name. I'm about 3 yrs old. I used to live...well survive from the kindness of strangers. You see, I was chained in a back yard and didn't have anything to keep the sun or rain off me. I didn't have anything to eat. My tummy hurt so much and I would cry, I cried all night from hunger. There was a nice family next door, that lived behind a big fence, they heard my cries and started tossing food over the fence for me. Then they must have sneeked a look at me and saw how skinny I was because they called someone and next thing I knew some wonderful ladies ... (Read More)were there taking me to a place that was warm, dry and had plenty of food for me to eat. They gave me lots of love there too. I know now that heros, really do exist. As you can tell I'm part chow but what you don't know is I am part beagle also. Chows are great dogs, they are quiet, clean, beautiful, loving, loyal, smart and have awesome purple tongues, I get all that from my chow side and I get even more smarts and my 'I love everyone, even other dogs' personality from my beagle side. You really just can't go wrong with a sweet cutie pie like me. If you'd like to adopt me and spend the afternoons taking some nature walks or just hanging out in the yard, that would be great. **An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes. Please ask us for more information if you are not in Tennessee** **All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.** Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption. Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE! *****AN APPLICATION AND HOME VISIT ARE REQUIRED***** Please visit for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chow Chow in Tennessee
    Chow Chow Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee 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.
