Big Betty Baby Chow
Breeds: Chow Chow, Crossbreed
Oh my, baby Chows!
Momma is a purebred Chow Chow, Shiloh, who landed at the Memphis Animal Shelter very pregnant - off she went to our foster home where on 4/10 adorable babies were born.
We are not naming these babies - we will let their approved adopter name their babies which we thought would be fun.
We don’t know who the daddy(s) is/were - there can be more than one dad - they look very “chowish” but we won’t know how much so for a bit.
At just 3 weeks of age, they are absolutely adorable babies - not doing much right now, snuggling with mama and each other but so far they look like fat, health babies - Shiloh is a great mom.
The babies can travel to New England after two sets of vaccinations at approx. 10 weeks of age.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
