The owners, we found out, moved to San Antonio and left their elderly Chow Chow behind. They said he was too old to travel, but I think he just needs a hair cut. He moves around really well; I think his hair is just matted enough that he can't move around well enough. Once we have the space for him I plan on asking the family if we can adopt him. I'm gonna take him in immediately to my vet to have him immunized and to get his matted hair shaved off and check him for "hot spots" that Chows tend to get. They tend to get these "hot spots" when their fur is matted and dirt can't escape and rubs against the skin. I am so tempted to go pick him up today but I would hate to take him away from his nice sized yard and bring him to our apartment with a small backyard area.
