Chow chow's abandoned by owners.

19 April 2012, 12:40

Dear chowists

Please see the info below on two brothers abandoned by their owners who moved leaving the chow chows and a family of 6 cats behind.

This despicable practice of people moving and leaving their animals to fend for themselves is becoming more prevalent.  If you know of anyone who is looking for a rescue chow chow, or someone with a good heart who can help, please contact Wolfshaven.  This is the fifth chow chow to be abandoned in this way recently.

Please share this huggable teddy bear’s appeal, he has such a beautiful friendly nature, and is cat friendly as well.

SPECIAL COMMENTS           Cheech and his brother were abandoned when their owners did a moonlight flip together with the                                            family’s 6 cats! 

We are rehoming the brothers separately as they suffer from sibling rivalry.  However, they are great with other dogs of all sizes and sexes and Cheech is exceptionally loving with people.  Both walk on leads and are very loving dogs.  Cheech’s current female companions absolutely adore him and kiss him to bits J he is a real lady killer!

                                                       Cheech has been shaved as his coat was knotty, so he is sporting the nude look right now.  However their

                                                       Coats are growing quickly, and they have beautiful soft hair.

                                                        They are the real deal, and Cheech weighs in at approx. 30kgs.
