A 2 year old, neutered male, Chow Chow/Border Collie mix weighing 52 lbs.
I'm a very nice fellow who needs to get regular positive exposure to people, dogs and new places. I've been under socialized so my new owner should get me out and about so I get used to all kinds of people and situations. I was surrendered by my family on Feb. 27 because they didn't have enough time for me.
I tend to walk in circles when I'm on a leash so I need some work on leash walking so I can walk nicely with my new family. It would be ideal if my new owner is familiar with the Chow breed. Our breed is not known to be overly friendly with people outside our immediate family so socialization will be important to counteract my early lack of socialization.
I arrived at RCHS with my brother Rambo and we get along nicely. If you already have a dog, a dog-to-dog introduction will be important. I am looking for a home with children 12 years old or older. I have high exercise requirements which might include hiking, dog sports, jogging, swimming or dog play.
A 6 year old, neutered male, domestic short hair gray and white weighing 14 lbs. I am a very vocal kitty with a lot to say. I have a great personality, love to play toys and of course take my naps in a nice cozy spot. If you have an empty lap to fill I am the kitty for you!
