Clutch


Clutch is about 6 years old and about 55 lbs.  His foster Mommy describes him as JUST PERFECT!  Clutch has done well with his fellow female house mate.  He knows how to use the doggy door.  He is a happy, low key and loves to curl up next to you as well as follow you around the house. Will you be his next forever home?  

If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Dwight


Dwight is an 8 year old sweet Chow Chow looking for a forever home where he can lay his paws and relax. His former owners were elderly and he was their only dog, so he is used to a more relaxed home environment. 

Dwight is fully house trained and enjoys sitting outside in the backyard, or cuddling next to you while you watch TV or read a book. He is a very, very loving dog that has a smile on his face at all times. 

He does well with other dogs, but he is still learning things, like how to play, as he was used to being the only dog in the household until recently. He does enjoy the company of other dogs as long as they are not overly aggressive or forward.

If you are looking for a sweet, very loving, low energy companion, Dwight would be a great pal!

If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Obi

Lazarus


Lazarus might be the sweetest dog ever. He just wants to be your buddy and dotes on his caregiver. Lazarus is about 5 and will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. He would do best in a home with another dog for company so he can spread his love around.

Magic Mike


Who has a magnetic personality? Who can charm ladies and men? Who's smile is contagious? Magic Mike!  That's who! Magic Mike happens to be one of the most laid-back, sweetest dogs out there!  He can just chill with the best of them. AND he gets along well with all the dogs. Very few things rattle him, he is doing well in his crate and with distinguishing on where to use the bathroom. We think he was a predominately outside dog before so he is a little confused, but if you can get him outside as soon as he gets up or awakens, you can expect him to do what is necessary outside and come back in and chill some more. And he is super smart, so getting him on a schedule should be pretty easy. He is very very loving and seeks out attention but is not overly pushy.  When he looks up at you and wants to be petted, it just puts a smile on your face.  We think he would do well with children who were over 10, because We aren't sure he has been around children much. Not sure about cats but we will cat test him as soon as we can.  If you want your heart to melt, you will want to meet Magic Mike! He will make an excellent family member!!


If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Roxy


Roxy is a 9 y/o Chow/ACD located in Springfield, KY. She was an owner surrender after her owner could no longer care for her, but she's one of the best dogs. She lived as a house dog for 8 years, so she's house-trained and very well-behaved. She was raised with kids. She seems indifferent to cats. She was somewhat nervous about other dogs initially but is getting much better. Most people have been turned off by her age, but she definitely doesn't act like a senior. She's kinda sassy! She'd fit in really well as a family dog!  Could you be that perfect home?

If you would like further information or to meet Roxy, please contact Ariella Gibson acgibson17@gmail.com.

Please check back frequently for new forever friends that join our program.  If one of our pups doesn't match what you are looking for, please reach out to us as we may have other potential matches not listed yet or  in the works.

Adobe


Adobe is a very handsome young man. His coat it lush and shiny plus he looks like he has some blue chow coloring with his silver tail. He is just two and heartworm negative. 

Here is what Adobe told me he wants in his furever home: 

1. A yard to run around in.  He has energy bursts like most young dogs so he wants to run.
2. Plenty of toys to chew on, a ball to chase, kids or young active companion dog to play with.
3. An energetic, active family that he can go on walks with, and protect from squirrels!!
4. Understanding and patient to help me with basic obedience training.
5. Plenty of love and snuggle time. A family to watch TV with in the evenings.
6. Treats and quality dog food with fish oil for his coat.

Bo


Hi, my name is Bo, and I'm a handsome adult shepherd-chow mix boy with a lot to offer my new forever family. I'm wary of strangers, but once I'm past my initial shyness, I'll be your new best friend - loyal, loving and affectionate. I'm good on a leash, have good house manners, house and crate trained and I get along with other dogs. My foster says I'm very playful with my foster sister – lots of tug of war sessions with toys every day. I love to chase squirrels, rabbits and kitties, so I would not be good in a family with cats. My perfect forever home would be with an experienced dog family that doesn't have small children and would be able to continue my socialization with strangers and new situations. I'm a large dog who might knock down a small child and I get scared with loud noises - which small children are known for! I'm a special needs dog since I've been diagnosed with hip dysplasia (common in GSD dogs). It is presently under control, but the family would need to keep my weight down and my exercise up and I'll have lots of good years ahead of me. If you come to Petco to see me, please understand that I may be shy and not show my true personality with all the noise and strange people at the adoption events, but the great personality is there waiting for you.

You can meet Bo at Petco Clear Lake ( Bay Area at Space Center Blvd) on Saturdays 11am - 4pm.  Or send inquiry to us at: pets2adopt@yahoo.com

Adoption fee for Bo is $175.

Hamilton "Hammie"



Hi! My name is Hamilton and I go by Hammie, because I can be quite the ham! I like to dance in a circle when I’m ready and excited for some chow and will be so tickled to greet you, when you come home!
I have to admit that HCCC has been the greatest blessing to me and has helped me to feel love and appreciated for who I am. You see, my leg was broken and not tended to, when it should have been. All the same, through the love and care of HCCC, I have am receiving the care and nurturing that I so needed.
While it may take you and I a couple of weeks to get to know each other, once we have gained each other’s trust, I will lie at your feet and guard you with all my devotion, as I face the door and look out for your safety and well-being. I show my love by leaning on your legs, following you around, and it is a signed deal when I give out kisses! Best way to get to that point is to give me neck and back scratches...ahh...and shoulder rubs...mnnn...! Seriously, what guy doesn’t like that!
I prefer not to be approached quickly towards the face, so kids may not be an option. If at anytime you need my attention quickly, I know my name (Hammie) and the word, TOUCH. If you say the word, hold your opened hand down (palm towards me) at your side, I will come and touch it with my nose. It is my SAFE word! Please reward me with the word YES! and lots of praise and treats...lol...I will try n figure out anything for treats! I don’t SIT well, because of my leg, but will touch my rumpus on the floor for you! I am still in positive training and hope you will continue this with me, it is a joy for me to learn - as much as rewarding it will be for the two of us!
I’m not big about being on furniture and doggie beds, but will lie next to you. Food time is one of my favies and I may test you, to see if you will give me a bite, but I am smart enough to just go and lie down while you enjoy your chow!
I don’t do balls unless a treat is easily gained from one and mine are gone! I am just beginning to find joy in picking up a toy (not sure what to do with it beyond that) and do not bother anything in the home. I am house broken, like short walks around the block - that is about all I can endure, love to go on car rides, and having a furry sibling or may do well on my own.
Did I say how much I love food!? What I would love more is to have my very own Forever Home and my Foster-Parents say that, “I am Handsome Hammie and the Best Buddy, ever.”
HCCC will assist in my adoption, but I need you to let them know you are interested by filling out the Adoption Application and putting HAMILTON or HAMMIE on it! Let’s get this started!


As I have started to show signs of arthritis, my adoption fee has been sponsored & the rescue will continue to supply food, vetting & supplements for my care.

If you would like to meet Hamilton or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

All adoptions require a home visit and reference checks.  Thank you for visiting and your interest in wanting to adopt one of our forever friends!

Amarillo


Amarillo is a cool cucumber. We believe he is 4-5 years old. This red male will be neutered and most likely shaved down as the mats are tight around his body. This is a preview and we will update pictures and vetting info soon!

If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Diamond


This girl was turned into a shelter complete with her harness and we can't figure out why! She is as nice as they come! Diamond is about 2 years old and as pretty as her name. Her coat is a bit dull but we will have it sparkling soon. This girl definitely is a gem!

Widget


Widget is an extremely affectionate dog who wants all the attention someone is willing to give him. He does enjoy cuddling! He is good with kids, cats, and other dogs. He is a very fast learner. Widget is learning the "stop" command; so if he is doing something you don't want him to do, he is understanding that he shouldn't, just by saying stop in a firm tone. He had a little bit of food aggression but in just a week has learned to leave the other animals alone when they are eating. He is super happy and is always wagging his tail.  He likes stuffed animal toys a lot so you will need to have these on hand. Widget is a 4 year old adorable Chow Chow. 


If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Bear


Bear is approximately 5 years old.  He's housetrained and gets along with most dogs. He especially loves smaller dogs!  He's been around children at adoption events and has loved the attention! He loves his outside time also! He's fully vetted and neutered but heartworm positive.  We're looking to find him somewhere that can give him heartworm treatment and find him his forever home.

You can contact Charli Boyd at charliboyd03@aol.com or message me on Facebook.

Sweet Pea


Meet Sweet Pea!  She defines her name perfectly being sweet as she can be!  She is definitely chow chow with a hint of Shiba.  She is a petite red / cream colored approx. 2 years old.  Her 2 favorite things are people and toys.  She does like cats and dogs however proper introductions will be a must especially with other dogs to make sure they will get along as she is initially cautious and assertive.  She can be very playful and energetic so make sure you are keeping an eye on her initially to make sure her playful clumsy nature doesn't knock something over in your home.  Her foster Mommy is continuing to work with her on the basics but is making great progress.  She has been spayed, microchipped and fully vetted.  She is heartworm positive, is not showing any signs of damage but will be treated accordingly.

If you would like to meet her or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Troy boy is a stunner. He  was turned into a shelter due to owners relocation. This 2 year old needs warm up time then will be your friend leaning in to grab your attention. Troy Boy will be neutered, receive vaccines and microchip prior to adoption.

Jack Sprat


Jack Sprat has come a long way in our program. This young Chow/papillon mix is a joy. Jack is hesitant around new people but once he trusts you he will sleep on the bed with you resting his head on your chest. Jack is excellent in the house and is not crated. He loves other dogs! Jack would do best in a home with older children. He is about 2.5 years old and 38 lbs.

If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.


Toby


This handsome Chow is Toby. Toby was surrendered with his sister when the owner had financial problems. Toby is six, heartworm negative and fully vetted. He will want to bond with his owner and stay close. Toby is fine with other dogs as long they do not get in his face because he is a king and the peasants should not get too close. Toby was shaved due to matting and we are anxious for his coat to come in because it is long and sumptuous!

If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Simba


How cute am I ?!  Simba was dumped at a shelter by his owner when the owner had medical issues. Simba was initially terrified of his surroundings but he has made incredible progress. He is just 18 months and 33 lbs and loves to be scratched and rubbed once he trusts you.

If you would like to meet him or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.

Jellybean

Want a happy little pup to go to the park with? A fun-loving furry friend by your side?  Little Ms. Jelly Bean is a happy go-getter.  She is a small girl about 2-3 years old.  She is looking for her forever family that she can bond with and who will always keep her close and involved with daily activities.  Like all young dogs, she has energy to burn every day and needs to be walked and played with.  We find that she gets too excited if around young children or young high energy dogs and may chase the cat.  A mature well balanced playful adult dog companion will be a good influence and older children are preferred.   She is very clean and particular about her surroundings and not to worry, she is vocal and will let you know when she wants to go out.    She needs a yard to run around in and play time with some structure so she can feel secure and trust in a routine and that she will not be abandoned or neglected as in the past.  Ms. Jelly  wants to trust and be loved so she can relax and mature into the beautiful well adjusted family dog we know she can be.

If you would like to meet her or would like further information, please email chowmail.hccc@gmail.com.
