Chow Chow
Great Dane, Mix

An adotable dog in Houston, TX

  • Adult
  • Large
  • Male

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Riley is a Great Dane/Chow mix. His estimated date of birth is December 2009. He has the coloring of a Chow and the height and head of Great Dane. He is such a sweet, loving boy. He is extremely intelligent. He is very expressive with his face and you can tell what he is thinking. He deserves the best home we can find for him. He is willing to try anything to make you happy. He is crate trained and house trained. He rides well in the car. He keeps himself occupied if you give him a squeaky toy or chew toy. Once he gets to know you, he is the most loyal, loving friend you will ever have. He is even great with horses. Smaller, high energy children do startle him so he would do best in a home with older children. This lovebug has survived Parvo and a broken leg.

We would really love for him to find his loving family so we are lowering his adoption fee to $125. The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, vet check, de-worming, rabies, neuter and microchip. There is a $10.99 fee to Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.

You can apply online at www.aarfhouston.org/forms . Once your application has been approved, we can schedule a meet and greet.

Thank you for considering a rescue!

The adoption fee includes vet check, vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a $10.99 fee to Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. There is a $50 deposit on all puppies that have not been fixed yet. Once you provide us with proof of spay/neuter and rabies, you will receive your deposit back or we can send you a receipt to deduct from your taxes as a donation. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others. If you would like more info about this dog, send an email or call the Contact Person.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
