***Needs a Foster Home***
This dog is in need of a foster home as well as a permanent home. If you are interested in fostering please fill out an online foster application.

Hi, I'm Smokey, a handsome Chow in need of a new home. I was transferred from another rescue who rescued me from a LA shelter and I'm grateful to be given a chance to find my forever home.

My training is impeccable. I don't try to rush out of the gate and I sit and stay until given a command. I can pull a little bit when on leash, so I will need some work on my manners while walking.

I need a home with no small children. Older children who know how to be respectful may be ok. I need to be the only dog in the home and will need an experienced dog owner knowledgeable about Chows. It's unknown how I'd do with cats.

If you're looking for a friendly floof ball, fill out an online application to meet me.

More about this rescue

Canine Adoption and Rescue League is a 501(c)(3) Private Non-Profit No-Kill Organization. We rely on donations and do not receive government, state, or city funding. We operate almost entirely by volunteers.

Since 1996, Canine Adoption and Rescue League has rescued and placed thousands of unwanted, sick, abandoned, and homeless dogs. Dogs in our adoption program are placed in pre-screened, loving and secure homes. We make a lifetime commitment to all of our dogs.

Canine Adoption and Rescue League receives hundreds of calls from people who must find a home for a stray, a litter of puppies or even a family pet.

Canine Adoption and Rescue League's mission is to advocate for animal welfare, seeking to end the needless deaths of companion animals through our adoption, education, and outreach programs.
