I had to stay at my grandma's house because Chinook was not current on his vaccinations, and he had a tummy problem, so mom didn't want me to get sick. He had something call gee-r-dee-a, which means he had really bad sick poops. He is really thin, although it's hard to tell unless you touch him, because he's so fluffy. The shelter said that he had shown some aggressive behavior, so they would only release him to a rescue. My dad went in first to meet Chinook, and didn't see any aggressive behavior. When I got to meet him, I liked him! I was so excited that I started talking a LOT! I think it scared Chinook a little, he kind of backed away and laid down, then came up and licked my mouth. Then when he figured out I was playful, he started to play bow and hop around. My humans said that maybe he was just scared when the vet techs tried to examine him because his old owner never took him to the vet and he is over 1 year old. But he was never aggressive with them. Here is is cuddling with my mom.
I'm not jealous because I know that my humans just had Chinook for a few days until he could go to his foster home, and that the rescue had saved his life.
You can see more pictures of Chinook here.
Chinook's foster mom said that he is doing GREAT and that they just love him. Yay Chinook!
