BUDDY's Story...
BUDDY'S STORY (formerly Butkus at Camarillo shelter kennel 100)

My name is Buddy and I am a senior black Chow mix. Three weeks ago my family brought me to a really scary place called a shelter and left me there. They told the people at the shelter that I am diabetic, blind and not good with anyone. They said I am almost 15 years old but I know I am younger. The other stuff was a lie too!!! They wanted me to die there and so they told all those things about me. Not sure what I did to make them want to do that. For awhile there it looked like i would die in that place.

But then a young guy who was really nice and smelled of dogs came and got me out of there. I could show him that I am really really nice, and that I am also a perfect gentleman and housebroken. I met the dogs he smelled of - there were 5 and I liked them all.

The guy took me to a veterinarian and this is when everyone found out my family lied about me. I am perfectly healthy for my age. I do have some cataracts but I can see fine and my sugar is normal so I am not diabetic.

The other good thing that happened to me is that I got groomed... they shaved all my mats and I am clean now and not hot anymore. It feels good not to be itching all over. Before I left the shelter I got neutered. That was not too great but I am fine now.

Here are pictures of me so you can see what a good looking guy I am. And I am so easy to have at home... I am perfectly housebroken. I don't need to be walked if I can walk around your back yard. I like other dogs a lot. I am just now learning that it feels good to be petted.

I need my own family who could love me and I could love them. Someone who would not leave me ever again. I would like to know what it feels to be loved. Please be that person for me.

Yours truly,


P.S. please call Olga if you would like to meet me 805-279-3568 or e-mail

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BUDDY, a Sherman Oaks Chow Chow dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chow Chow for sale in Sherman Oaks, or seeking a Chow Chow dog from a breeder in Sherman Oaks.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sherman Oaks already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sherman Oaks breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chow Chow breeders who help with Chow Chow rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sherman Oaks paves the way for another one to be saved.
