Chorizo (Churri) is a 10-month old Lab/Shar-pei mix. He has been in a loving environment since he was first adopted at 8 weeks old. He is approximately 45 lbs, neutered, and up to date on all vaccinations. He has a good temperament and is energetic (ideally a fenced back yard would be good for him). He would benefit having another doggie companion that is active and likes to play. He is very intelligent, house/crate trained, and knows basic commands very well (sit, stay, down, shake and come). He walks perfectly on a front lead harness (and has been a great running partner!) He is very friendly and social with other dogs. He is looking for a home with no small children loud and chaotic environments – it makes him anxious. He would be happiest in a home without small kids. He is loyal and affectionate to his family/owners, but cautious by nature and sometimes slow to warm up to new people. He is doing great in his foster home!
If you have an interest in Chorizo we recommend and encourage you to complete an online application before coming to our next adoption event. Adoption events are every Saturday, excluding holidays, at the Petco located at 11331 W. Broad Street, Glen Allen, VA (next to Trader Joe’s) from 11:00am to 2:00pm. The online application can be found at henricohumane.org. A volunteer will respond as soon as possible, typically within 48 hours.
Please Note: Not all of our dogs attend each event so to find out if the dog you are interested in will be attending the next adoption stand, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
