The Kern County, CA Shelter Rescue Coordinator contacted ADR.org as they are a trusted Rescue Partner with this shelter and was known for being well organized and due diligent in handling rescue cases.
The same shelter reached out as well to rescue community in general as there were rumors that AC would need to seize the dogs from this junk yard like setting and turn them into the local shelters - as Owner had died. Hence time was of essence.
ADR.org has secured a safe place for now in CA but by end of March the chows will be coming to WA and will stay on Orcas Island.
All dogs will have to be vetted, altered, microchipped - and socialized with a new environment. After all they have been living lifelong on this piece of property – taken care of though and were treated well by their former owner- otherwise their behavior would be different.
It is now time to give them some time to settle in and realizing that a new era has started for them. Their new journey is about to start.
TITO's eyes will not let you go. He is curious but at the same time reluctant to approach . But that will all change. He was like all the other chows held in a solitary enclosure on the property and might have to learn first again to interact with other dogs - but will respect you when you are assertive and making him feel safe.
Estimated age is around 4-5 yrs.
