Daziey the Chow Chow had a series of epileptic seizures recently and it may well be that she’s not long for this world
Help me find a new dog if you’re inclined!
We have a good sized house and yard so space is not a problem but the cool thing about Daizey is the she did not need any fencing, never strayed, was easygoing and independent, never chewed or dug up the garden, and rarely if ever got into mischief as many dogs, especially when younger may tend to do.
If you Goggle Chow Chow’s you’ll see they have perhaps more of an aloof independent cat-like response to the world, and we are hoping to find a dog (preferably puppy) that fits that mold and not a high-energy, digging, chewing ball-fetching canine machine.
Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with that type of dog if you hunt, or live on a farm, but I see too many people with hunting and related sports type dogs, and to me it makes no sense to have that type of dog as a pet in the city.
I have been looking around a little but just via the computer, and I’ve noticed a few trends, some people want ridiculous amounts of money for what are essentially mutts, puppy mills are common and it’s exceedingly difficult to know if a breeder is upfront and knowledgeable and responsive as to the risks of long term genetic problems.
I am not adverse to a rescue dog / puppy or a good animal that cannot be kept by an owner that is unable.
Cheers & enjoys the good weather,
