Blue is a 1 year old Chow Chow. He was found on the side of the road. A gas station attendant stated that he had been dropped off on the side of the street a couple days before. Like a loyal Chow he stayed, waiting for his family who had abandoned him...He is a quiet, mellow, independent true Chow.

You won't find a more loyal dog in the world. He is 100% yours and all in, once he knows you. Blue is weary of strangers initially. Don't be surprised when he gives a low growl when he's in his crate which he runs to when he's uncomfortable. He hasn't ever tried to snap or bite. For those who are confident with dogs and don't need to push themselves on him, he will accept a stranger within hours. But he's not going to be a dog that strangers can run to and hug around the neck, or grab a hold of a tuff of coat. He's more likely to try to dodge people by going behind his people or running to his crate or just trying to escape. Give him a way out and make sure that people aren't running up to him and demanding his love. He has to do things on his own.

Blue currently lives with big and little dogs. He sleeps with little dogs, he hangs out with them every day. He is weary at first of big dogs. He will ignore them and try to get away from them. He's not a good option for a high energy, must be in a dog's face, kind of big dog. Little dogs don't phase him at all. He on more than one occasion has been caught sleeping with the cat in his foster home. The cat loves his crate and since the door always stays open, the cat opens sleeps in there and he just climbs in too. He has never once even looked cross-eyed at the cat.

Blue is crate trained and housetrained. He has never had an accident in his foster home. Given that he came in, completely matted, scared to walk on tile, didn't want to walk over the threshold, it appeared he had never been in a house before. But once he came in, he wasn't about to leave except to go out, do his business and come back in. The first week he was with his foster home, they kept the leash on his and let him drag it around. It worked well so they didn't have to ever grab him for anything. Now, his people could climb on him, pull on him (not recommending), brush him, sleep on him, whatever and he'd be perfectly fine. Once he knows you, he's all yours.

Blue is only an option for a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are kids (or grandkids) they need to be over the age of 12+.
