Donut's Story...
Born in Puerto Rico on March 22, this puppy arrived in New Jersey in late May. His prospects had he stayed in PR would have been grim - most chows end up chained to a bush, with no shelter and limited human contact. Donut is very affectionate, is full of joy when anyone he knows comes around, and loves to be held and cuddled. It was apparent within 24 hours of his arrival that he had some sort of neurologic issue. His foster family in PR thought that perhaps he had been bitten by a poisonous insect. He has been examined by a Veterinary Neurologist in Pennsylvania, who believes that little Donut suffers from a congenital defect. He has delayed sensation to his extremities, which means that when he wants to get up from lying down, he has to really, really think about it to make it happen. He can climb up stairs, but is liable to take a tumble when climbing down stairs. The neurologist suggests that the best therapy is lots and lots of walking (not running), and believes that he could improve with time. The good news is, he will probably never jump on the sofa! Please consider this fellow if you live in a house with minimal steps, love the Chow/Akita type breeds, and are a walker. If you are a therapist, or looking for a therapy dog, he could be a great match.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pennigton 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 Pennigton 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 Pennigton paves the way for another one to be saved.
