This is Shane!

Meet Shane! He is an 8 year old, Chow Chow/Labrador Retriever mix (that's what the DNA test showed!). Shane was surrendered to us when his owner developed serious medical problems and was unable to care for him any more. Shane came to us quite overweight, however, in his time with us, he has lost 16lbs on a good diet and exercise plan - he is a big boy at 80lbs, but is almost at his goal weight of 75lbs! Shane is a lower energy boy, who is a perfect Chow/Lab blend in his personality - he is super sweet and happy, even goofy at times, but has an independent (almost cat-like) side as well. He enjoys his daily walks, but just loves spending time outside with his people, watching the world go by (actually, his favorite thing in the world is snow!). Shane bonds very strongly to the people he is closest to and can be aloof with strangers on his home turf, but is just a friendly guy when he is out and about! Shane will do best in an adult home and would not mind sharing his home with cats. He is 100% housebroken. Shane ignores other dogs while out on walks and in public, but would like to be the only dog in the home so he can be the king of the castle!
