Altered chow chow

Betrayed by his owner and left with just the memories of his past, an eight-year-old Chow Chow named Oso stares into the wall of the noisy and overcrowded Downey Animal Care Center. His family surrendered him, he is not listed for adoption and with a dubious future Oso seems to sense, the dog has given up on life.

A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here.

After speaking with the shelter on Wednesday morning, Oso weighs 65 pounds and when brought into the shelter suffered from alopecia and pyoderma which may take weeks to cure. He can be adopted by the general public or a rescue organization with a medical  waiver. Oso is scheduled for a follow-up  examination this week.

    This is so very sad. Oso is an 8 yr old chow that has had his heart broken by his pos family. Oso needs our help to get out because he’s not listed for adoption on their website which does not bode well for Oso. Oso can be adopted but will require a medical waiver for a skin problem. To rescue him, a foster home, pledges for his care and a rescue group. He’s very urgent. Don’t let him be destroyed for time/space.

    Here is an article about Oso. (Don’t you just love the new look?)
