Bear's Story...
Bear is a wonderful young dog, with a lovely disposition. He has the whole package: Bear loves going for long walks and playing with his stuffed toys, but is very calm in the home and never barks unless someone is at the door. Bear loves to be pet and cuddled with, but his favorite activity is definitely going for walks. He is very playful—he likes chasing a ball (he hasn't yet learned that he has to bring it back). Bear is a young adult who currently weighs 36 lbs.

Here is what else his foster family had to say:

Bear is social and friendly with everyone he meets, including children and other dogs. He absolutely loves meeting new people and having lots of attention. Bear has not exhibited any signs of aggression towards anyone and is a very happy and loving dog that enjoys being with people and meeting new dogs. Bear is not shy with anyone. He loves people to pet him and and give him lots of attention. Bear is good with dogs, and always walks over to meet them with a wagging tail, although he seems to make other dogs bark at him a lot. We would not suggest that he go to a home with cats in it as he does like to bark and chase them although he would probably be fine with dog friendly cats and someone to teach him some manners in this regard.

Bear has not exhibited any signs of separation anxiety at all, if we go to leave the house without him, he follows us to the door hoping to come to, but if he is left behind he just goes and sits down. We've never heard him complain when someone leaves. Bear has also had no accidents in the home and is fully house and crate trained.

Bear shows a little fear towards cars but nothing serious, he just doesn't like the loud noises of cars and prefers to stay on quiet streets (he tries to get into friends cars so it looks like he is familiar with riding in a car!). Bear is a playful dog and enjoys chasing a ball in the backyard, and cuddling with his teddy bear. He also loves comfortable things like couches to lay on, but most of all, bear LOVES walks, even though he is very calm and quiet in the home he will always be up for a good long walk. Bear has a moderate energy level and is very calm in the home, and just lays down or plays with one of his toys, but he also loves going for walks and being outside.

Bear has a very thick coat, and seeing as it's summer he is shedding quite a bit, we would describe bears shedding level as high (but in clumps of hair that are easy to sweep up thankfully). Bear is very calm and quiet in the home and never barks unless there is a knock at the door.

Bear is a healthy young dog, with a beautiful fluffy coat of fur. Bear is around one or two years old, and so is still a very young dog. He is still learning some of his house manners, because he does still tend to counter surf, and occasionally will chew something that does not belong to him, etc, but with some obedience training he will be perfect. He has learned how to sit, and is currently working on learning "down". Other then that Bear does not know any other commands but like I said before, with further obedience training he will be a quick and happy learner.

Bear is fully crate trained but he doesn't like going in the crate and will resist when you try to crate him, but once he is in he will just lay down. We use a crate because he will get into things like food and shoes etc, when he is unattended. The longest we have left Bear in his crate during the day was only 2 hours. But we strongly recommend Bear be crated all through the night, and when nobody is home, at least until he learns house rules. Bear is well on his way to being fully leash trained, and with patience and training he will be walking perfectly on the leash in no time at all!

Overall Bear is a wonderful young dog that loves playing with toys, going for long walks, cuddling, and just being apart of the family. We think that Bear would to great in almost any family situation, but he does tend to like all the attention for himself, so a young couple would be a good fit. Bear has an amazing disposition and is very gentle and loving. He's up for anything. Bear should have at least two long walks everyday, because even though he is very calm in the home he does have a lot of energy. Remember that putting him in the backyard to run around does not substitute for a walk. Bear would also thrive in obedience training and we think he could learn a lot from it. But once again, Bear is a great dog, and is just a loving, funny, and caring dog with his own little personality. Anyone he meets falls in love with him instantly! (we have too) So please consider making this little fur ball apart of your family.

If you think Bear would be a good fit for your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a Chow Chow dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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