smokey's Story...
When Smokey was first recued, you could barely touch him without him growling, etc. It's been a while and his progress is amazing. He now will give kisses and let his foster family pet him. BUT>>> he still has the potential to bite. He also has an old injury on his back hind leg . But in all honestly, Smokey runs around completely fine, he is quite fast and can jump the baby gates with no problem. He seems in no pain and is a fast little guy. The foster mom is prepared to keep him unless some experienced person would show interest because of his personality, he can be quite a handful, and still may bite. He requires grooming frequently. He does get along well with dogs most of the time. THIS DOG IS NOT AT THE AFW SHELTER. THIS IS A COURTESY LISTING FOR A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL LOOKING TO REHOME THEIR PET. PLEASE CONTACT THE FOSTER DIRECTLY. Contact Gina at
Smokey was abandoned with his two other housemates by his owners at a vets office in Los Angeles. The vets called animal control to come get the dogs. As the officer was picking up the dogs, a customer saw him say to the vet that all three would most likely be euthanized. The vet said there was nothing he could do. This kind person tirelessly networked the dogs who were at the North Central Shelter. One dog was adopted out, but the other two were certain to die. Fortunately, the foster mom rescued Smokey and another group saved his friend. Smokey is a well behaved little guy...he is about 30 pounds and is happiest sitting by your feet. He gets along with dogs of all sizes and likes to run around the yard. He's rather mellow and a great companion. He is very well behaved in the house, housebroken and up to date on all shots. Please consider giving Smokey his forever home!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

smokey, a Youngwood American Eskimo Dog/Chow Chow dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Eskimo Dog/Chow Chow for sale in Youngwood, or seeking a American Eskimo Dog/Chow Chow dog from a breeder in Youngwood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Youngwood 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 Youngwood 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 American Eskimo Dog/Chow Chow breeders who help with American Eskimo Dog/Chow Chow rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Youngwood paves the way for another one to be saved.
