-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT EFFY AT 971-322-6910 FOR MORE DETAILS.-

Breed: Chow Chow Mix

Age: 7-8 years old

Weight: 85lbs

Energy Level: He’s not an athlete… He loves walks, usually 1-2 a day, he doesn’t know how to play with toys or anything, but he can wrestle! He’s really just happy to spend the day chewing bones and napping, and sitting in the grass (in a well-fenced yard!) to watch the day go by.

His perfect home: No Cats, No Small Animals, No Kids. Low traffic, adult-only home. Fenced yard. A chill suburb or rural home would be great, he doesn’t do well with busy city sounds. There’s no need for dog parks or tons of exciting car-ride adventures (though he’s gone camping before & enjoyed napping in the woods on leash). The more routine & laid back his life is, the better. He does great with structure and predictable day-to-day life. Maybe if someone is retired or works from home? He shouldn’t be alone for more than 5-6 hours.

He could be okay with one other dog in the family, like a laid-back female dog or an especially laid-back, older male dog. He’s made a couple casual dog friends before, and when he got to know them, he began watching them to learn how to be a dog! (He’s really like a very big cat!)

He’s shy with people at first, needs proper introductions with everyone, and lots of space to retreat to until he feels comfortable. Once he knows you & loves you thought, he is so sweet and loves to lay down next to you and cuddle. He’s incredibly loving with his people.

Doesn’t have accidents in the house.
Doesn’t dig holes or jump fences (he can’t really jump, he’s a little top-heavy).

He’s so smart! He learns quickly. Lots of repetition in his routine would bring out his really good manners!  Not a very vocal dog at all, he rarely barks, even when he’s nervous or alarmed.  We’ve been working on him being crate trained! He’ll eat his meals in the crate and will go in willingly if you have hot dogs.    He has a couple dietary needs (no beef, no poultry, high quality kibble or raw diet would be ideal, loves fish).
