You will fall in love the moment you meet sweet Haiku. She may look like a lion but has a heart of gold. Haiku is about 5 years old and a purebred Chow Chow who was living in horrible conditions before coming to Labs and More. When she arrived, not only had she been neglected, but she was also pregnant and in need of a safe place to deliver her pups. Within days she delivered her adorable pups and she was the best mom to them! She is now done with her pups and ready to take on a new chapter in her life. Haiku's foster mom has cared for hundreds of foster dogs and says Haiku is one of the best she has ever fostered. She is kind, patient, easy going, happy and a love. Some Chows are known to be a bit aloof, this girl is an exception. As with this breed it takes them a little time to fall in love with their human friends, Haiku is quick to be that love. She loves to be pet, rubbed, scratched and even kissed. Her head is now held high and her tail is often wagging. She is a nice size girl at about 50lbs so she is easy to handle and walk. Grab a leash and she is ready to go on an easy paced walk. She is a lower energy girl who would benefit from a walk a day. She is not much into playing with toys but does love to be brushed and rubbed down by her foster mom. Her coat is black with red highlights due to being sunburnt from being out in the sun, we expect this will change in time. She was never allowed in a home but since arriving at her foster home she loves to be in the house where she can see you. She will often wander outside to find a cool place to lay until you call her in. She is now crate trained and can be left in a crate for several hours at a time. She does like her time outside and would probably do well with a doggie door. Haiku is looking for a family who has a yard that she can come and go into as she would like. She is a very good house guest and is also house trained. She is so quiet in the house during the day when her people are home- sometimes so quiet you don't even know she's there...except for her snoring! She was introduced to a cat and had no interest in the kitty and didn't react at all. Haiku would love a family who understands this breed and who is kind, quiet, gentle and ready to make her a part of their family. We suggest no small children as that would be too much for her at this time in her life. If you are interested in Haiku, fill out an adoption application on our website!

This information is as up to date and accurate as possible for the dog in their current environment. All dogs and puppies will need time and training to adjust to their new surroundings and learn the rules of their new home. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, the first step is completing the adoption application, available with our adoption process on our website at www.labsandmore.org. Your adoption includes the spay or neuter, current vaccinations, microchip, and other services provided while in our care. The safety and health of our puppies is priority one so we only allow approved applicants to meet and handle puppies. Please understand everything we do is for the dogs and conducted by our kind and generous volunteers. We rely solely on donations and we do not profit from a dog's adoption. Labs and More is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates on donations and time dedicated to this cause by volunteers. Your adoption will save the life of future dogs in need. Labs and More makes no guarantees regarding the behavior, breed, or age of the dogs in our care. Although we strive to provide necessary medical care to dogs in our care, we cannot predict future or current medical needs whether they were symptomatic or not at the time of adoption.
