This Chow/German Sheperd Mix Needs a New Home

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Roger is a gorgeous 3-4 year old Chow/German Shepherd mix who is house-trained and crate-trained and gets along well with other dogs.

A Good Samaritan witnessed him being put out of a vehicle and left on the side of the road.

Roger ran and ran to try to catch up, but of course he couldn't.

He then waited there for four days for this person to come back for him. They didn't.

Finally, the Good Samaritan was able to catch him and find him a foster home, where he has lived happily for four months, working on socialization and obedience.

He is going to obedience class and learning all kinds of things like "sit," "down," "stay," "leave it," and "heel." Roger has learned some pretty good manners over the last few months!

Roger really enjoys other dogs, and would love having another dog to pal around with!

If not a brother or sister, maybe just a friend or a neighbor. As with many chows, Roger is somewhat of a one-person dog.

Once you earn his trust, then he'll be your best friend, but he doesn't really see the point in getting petted and loved on by strangers and can seem aloof in social situations, or just very focused on HIS person instead of everyone else.

He has been cat-tested and seemed a little scared of the cat, so he could probably live harmoniously with a friendly or indifferent cat once he got used to it.

He is a comedian. He loves to talk and sing, and his clumsiness (especially on wood floors when it's dinner time!) can sometimes remind you of a cartoon character!

He also has an adorable habit of pawing at you when he wants your attention or he wants you to notice him. He seems to love the water and doesn't hesitate to wade chest-deep in the lake at the dog park.

Roger’s adoption fee is $150, which includes neuter, microchip, and up-to-date vaccinations.
