Chook AKA Chaz


1 / 10


Terrier, Pit Bull / Mix




3 Years and 4 Months old

Hey guys, I'm Chook, which means Chicken in Australian! Fancy, amiright? I am a Bully Breed mix with a soft, rich red coat and quirky ears. I'm not very big, maybe 42 pounds.

My story is an eventful one, as I was rescued from a situation where a bystander was trying to be helpful, but unfortunately couldn't keep up with the responsibilities of being a private foster pawrent.
Thankfully, I met my current foster pawrents though! I'm luckier than a lot of dogs, because they're Dog Trainers! How cool is that?! They've been teaching me all kinds of cool things, like sit, down, or my favorite Place! Oh, and how to respond to directional guidance on the leash. They even said they'd help my new pawrents by offering a few lessons to help with my transition to a new home!

I am shy in the beginning, but I'm a rootin, tootin little bullet when I'm comfortable. I love to vocalize and run around like a silly goose in the backyard. I'd do okay in a house with older teens, but absolutely no young children. I have a VERY mouthy play style when I am playing with my humans.

I am very very dog social, though I can be a bit pushy at times, but I am easily corrected. Which means I'd love to go to a home with other dogs! I haven't been tested around cats, though.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.


    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
