Calling all Chow lovers!

Meet Cora, a 13.5 year old Chow Chow. This gorgeous girl weighs 45 pounds. Cora’s lifelong owner is sadly unwell and can no longer care for her. We hope to help find Cora the adoptive home she needs to continue being loved and cherished.

We are told that Cora is very content to be on her own. This is apparently a Chow Chow trait. While she has lived with other dogs, she is happy to be an only animal. However, Cora could live with another dog, a dog her size that is mellow. She does not appreciate small dogs that bark at her. Cora has only been observed around cats while she’s been on walks. She doesn’t try to chase them so perhaps she could live with a dog savvy cat? Cora does fine with children aged 10 and over.

Cora will be sure to let you know when your deliveries have arrived! This is when Cora barks. While she is good to stay alone in her home when the humans leave, one will need to give Cora time to adapt to her new home and allow her to settle in and learn that you will be returning.

At this time Cora can manage stairs but she did have knee surgery and has some arthritis-which is understandable, given her age. Ideally Cora won’t have to climb or descend too many stairs in her adoptive home. It’s been a couple of years since Cora saw a vet so her adopter should be prepared and able to afford her vetting. Cora is due for a  full senior check up with lab work. This is all very important to take care of. Additionally Cora’s adopter should be able to afford her regular grooming-LOOK at that luscious coat!

Cora is a lovely girl who enjoys her daily walks. We are told she is good on leash. She sounds like a loyal dog who, if given the chance to bond with a new person. will be your new best and loyal friend.

Cora is located in Olympia, WA. For contact information please email: referrals@olddoghaven.org

This is a courtesy post. Cora is not an Old Dog Haven dog. We urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
