About me

Hello, My name is Baloo, I’m a 4 year old male Chow Chow who came into the centre as my owner was moving home and was unable to take me with them. I’m a very cute boy who loves going for long walks and having lots of cuddles.

In fact I love going for walks so much that I have an unfortunate habit of trying to drag the staff members here round the fields. I do settle down and walk nicely eventually, but the staff are working on getting me walking nicely from the start. None the less, I’d probably benefit from having a strong and experienced owner.

As a Chow Chow, I also have a couple of medical conditions very common to my breed which the staff here are happy to tell you about. I am going to need a bit more care than your average dog, this is something a potential owner would have to keep in mind

I’m a friendly boy who loves other dogs, so could potentially live with one. I do chase cats though, so probably shouldn’t live with one. I have lived with children previously so could live with children 8 years plus.

I’m a sweet, friendly boy looking for a special forever home, could that home be yours?
