Chaibo's story...

Chaibo is an 8 year old Chinese Crested Powderpuff who was surrendered to Athens Clarke County Animal Control in January 2004. His leg had been injured and the owner could not care for him. Upon further investigation it was found that his leg had been broken (cause unknown) and set in a temporary cast. We were able to locate his primary vet who told us the injury had occurred several weeks prior and that the owner had refused treatment. We were also told that the day before he was surrendered the owner had brought him to the vet after she had administered toxic doses of Ibuprofen to alleviate his pain. Luckily we were able to discover this in time and no permanent damage was done. Sadly, the injury to his leg had gone untreated for too long and the leg had to be amputated. After several months of recovery Chaibo was out running and playing with the other dogs.Chaibo is looking for a home where he can get the love and attention that he craves. He does best as an only dog, or with another canine companion. He does well with dogs of all sizes, and is also good around cats and children. Chaibo walks well on a harness and enjoys playtime outdoors. He loves to sunbathe and often refuses to come back inside if he's relaxing outside. Chaibo is crate trained, but may need a wrap or a belly band when indoors to reinforce his housebreaking.
