A volunteer writes: Is that a little lion in the kennel? Wait, no, it’s a Chow Chow! An adorable little fluffball of reds looks up, thrilled to be going for a walk to go potty. His leash manners are lovely, he’s beautifully groomed, and loves to be pet. Surrendered to our care as his owner is ill and can no longer care for him, we’re told he can be a bit shy with strangers but once he sniffs you he knows you’re a friend, he’s respectful and gentle with young children, enjoys being bathed, is scared of thunder and other loud noises and will hide, is partially housetrained and will use wee wee pads in the house. As we walked to the park Ponky does a little skip of invitation when we pass another dog, and in group play he ignored the helper dog when he wasn’t ready to play. Ponky is easy and gentle, still a bit stressed at his change of circumstance but handing it all like a rockstar, acing his behavior assessment to prove it. He’s looking for a new person or family to love so come meet him today.
