05.Dog of the Month for October – Chow Guai

Introducing Chow Guai – ‘Black Jelly’ by name as well as by nature. A lovely boy who manages to be in all places at once and loves to trail around the woods with his friends – ALWAYS running back immediately at the sound of his name or a whistle – he’ll even round up any stragglers – human or otherwise – to keep the pack together. Chow Guai is 1-2 years old and has suffered a lot in his little life – he deserves a chance at a loving home outside the shelter. Whatever you give him we guarantee you’ll get back 100 times over…
“No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.”
If you think Chow Guai could be a good match for you or anyone you know, then contact Care for Dogs, English (084 752 5255) Thai (086 913 8701) or e-mail: to make an appointment to meet him at the shelter.
