Zackary was born in 1998 on
my birthday - we had gone to look at puppies, with the agreement that we
would NOT get one without discussing it overnight. Well, Zack just walked
right up to my husband and grabbed his shoe strings and his heart! He picked
him out and Zackary came home with us that day. He needed to be adopted
and needed a good home with patient people..and we're patient.
A intelligent, very clever
puppy that is a Alpha dog..We have had to be very firm with Zack and hes
been worth every minute. Hes a wonderful companion, very gentle, and boy!
is he smart. He's our good will Chow. He loves people, and people start
smiling the minute they see him.
He is a very large Chow -long
bodied and taller then most, he weighs 75 pounds. He was neutered at 6
months (as all our animals are). As much as we love Zack, he is not a Chow
to be bred..we believe very strongly that we must
leave breeding Chows in the
professional hands. It is a strong responsibilty to breed and preserve
the personality and integrity of the magnificent Chow Chow. Zack stands
27" at the shoulder-quite a sight-and a intimindating one to those who
have never seen such a big Chow. Of course, he wins their heart immediately
with his big toothy grin, and when he offers to "shake". He has been very
disapppointed that some humans do not seem to know how to "shake". :)
He will also give gentle "kisses"
and bring you his favorite toy so you can play with him. or you can pick
one out of his basket.
Zackary can tell time too!
At 3:30 he knows its time to ride to the post office with Dad.
and Ben have been a very good match as companions. Zackary has let Ben
know that he is the Alpha dog-
at Ben's playful age he readily
accepts that. His favorite thing to do is walk under Zacks belly and then
walk when Zack does. Zackary solves that problem by simply laying down
on him. They hare lots of fun to watch play.
They both like the cats -
but are totally intimindated by them. The cats rule! There are 5,
9-17 years old.
Zack thinks hes a very handsome
boy. He is a "silent" Chow - he rarely ever barks and moves silently thru
the yard and house. He does murmur and mutter tho.
