OLICK is a 10 month old Australian Cattle Dog puppy boy!

Olick is Deaf. Of course, he does not care one bit. But WE want him to have a home with experience with deaf dogs and loves the breed.

He is extremely beautiful. PURE WHITE. Looks like a 30 lb white German Shepherd ... beyond CUTE !!! VERY adorable face as well! We know and love him !!!

Olick would do perfectly with an active Family, someone who is into agility training, exercise, being physical, etc. That's for the Cattle Dog in him. Because he is deaf, he would need another companion dog in his new home. Disabled dogs often have a 'buddy' who 'hears' for them! It becomes the most beautiful relationship.

COMMANDS: He know sit, yes, no, stay (not too long), look at me, lay down (not too long). He knows how to wait for his food, and even though he gets real excited at mealtimes, we assign him a spot in the kitchen (next to the stove), and he remains there awaiting his food.

PACK STRUCTURE: Olick gets along remarkable with La Gorda (female Chow German Shepherd), they play and she is able to discipline him if he is too goofy. Olick gets along great with Karate (male Border Collie), they play and like each other quite a bit. Olick also plays with our pack leader Mignonne, but not as much as she is more stern (large Female German Shepherd).

SOCIALIZED: Olick simply gets along with all dogs and is a super star at the West LA (Olympic & Sawtelle) Petsmart Pet Hotel. He goes there for day camp once a week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7m8Iit76Xc

CRATE: We had Olick sleep in a crate the first 2 weeks, but now he sleep either on the floors on some sofas or on an armchair in our room next to my wife

TEMPERAMENT: Olick is very joyful, very playful and supremely intelligent. Due to our lack of time, I know that we don't challenge Olick enough with training. He would GREATLY benefit from training and he is both food and 'you' motivated, he will do great with consistent training and structure.

TOOLS FOR EDUCATION: Crate, spray bottle, and sometimes a little white thing rope that we step on if he goes too fast and we can't stop him to get his attention. I would love to use a vibration collar but honestly, and even though we have one, I don't know how to. The vibration/low intensity shock would come handy at the dog park for recall, but as I don't know how to use it, I don't.

POTTY TRAINING: He is 100% potty trained. He was at 99% but we used the crate when he would 'make a booboo' and that was good enough to up the percentage !!! He has access in and out through a doggie door.

COMMITMENT: Forever Home!

About Adopt A Chow LA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a very small group of people dedicated to helping, saving, re-homing, educating, advising people about chows and ALL breeds. We are a 501c3 non profit of all volunteers. We network/cross-post to help save animals. We have adoptions and invite people into our 'outreach' program so they can 'show' their dogs. We need volunteers, we need funds to help get the dogs out of shelters and to get vet care. We help dogs of all ages and have saved over 200 chows and mixes as well as other breeds. We need FOSTERS to help the many dogs that needs somewhere safe to go until they find a fabulous, loving home. We advocate spay and neuter and also giving every dog a chance no matter how old, or infirm or grouchy. They all change with good care and love and proper direction.
