CHUMBA (SRC #1179) has just been rescued from a local Humane Society and he is currently on medical hold until SRC has him fully examined and evaluated. This handsome black and white Lowchen/Terrier is such a cute little boy who has obviously been thru a great deal of trauma already. His medical needs apparently are not very extensive because he appears to be young and healthy -- still even if he were not, SRC simply could not have left him behind with those eyes begging us to help him although we do not know enough about him yet to let him be released for adoption. Chumba won’t be released to his permanent home until he is completely evaluated and healed from all his medical procedures. Chumba is a Lowchen which stands for “Little Lion Dog”. These dogs are cheerful, lively, affectionate canines. They are very sociable and intelligent, often very eager to learn and happy to please the human in their life. These dogs are fearless, but gentle and sensitive – quite a combination in such a small package (maximum weight between 12- 18 pounds). Lowchen usually learn quickly and present little difficulty in their training. Playful, they are good with children and usually will do okay with other dogs as well as non-canine pets. They need someone to adopt them that has an alpha personality in order to assure they understand who is the “leader of their pack”. Lowchen need a daily walk. Interactive play will take care of the majority of their exercise needs, still as with all canines, play will not fulfill their innate instinct to walk. Dogs who are not allowed to go on daily walks are more likely to develop behavior issues. They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off lead, such as a large fenced in yard. Their general life span is between 12 to 14 years of age. Their hair is soft and hypo-allergenic so they do well with humans that need dogs that do not shed much. They are wonderful family companions and will adjust well to apartment life if given adequate attention. If you are interested in this cute little boy, just keep watch on this site and information will be posted as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience. SRC diligently strives to assure that each dog we place is fully vetted and evaluated prior to its placement in an adoptive home. When he is ready for adoption Chumba (1179) will be heartworm tested (He has tested Negative), neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, and micro-chipped, plus his foster parent will give input as to his demeanor in their home so that his adoptive parent will have a better idea of the personality of their dog. Please keep in mind that once adopted EVERY dog still needs an adjustment period in their new home, no matter how well adjusted he or she becomes in their foster home.
