Shown above is Sebastian, my first 'Rescue' in 1986. Sebastian was a truly beautiful boy and a gentleman in every way. He was euthanised at 14 years of age when he came down with bloat. Sebastian, with Paitou Francesca sired one male puppy, Ch Taukai Grand Finale, owned & exhibited by Mrs Wendy Sherriff of Sabimba Chows.
Shown below are just a few of the Chows we have had come in to be re homed, and stayed. There have been many others which have been rehomed with retired chow breeders for which we are tremendously grateful. Chows are not the easiest to rehome and it is a tremendous asset if the rescueing family are familliar with the breed.
Motely came to us as a four year old, very 'alpha' and so haughty he literally walked and inch off the ground.
Lots of time and effort went into this boy until he accepted that he wasn't the boss while maintaining his aristocratic
and strong personality. Motley became my constant companion and guardian and instigated my interest and love for the smooth chow.
He passed away at 14 years after a short illness.
Toto came to us from the Brisbane RSPCA aged eight years, and they had obviously been hard years.
This little girl, Tara, came from the Bundaberg RSPCA when her devoted elderly owner was admitted into a nursing home.
Lulu was eight when she joined us when her second lot of owners moved into an apartment.
This is the latest rescue to join the crew October 2009, not a Chow obviously but a Lhasa Apso Shitzu cross
