Are you looking for an awesome dog who resembles a mix between a bear and a lion? Look no further! Meet Mifu! Mifu is a Chow Chow mix who was transferred to HSSC from Manatee County Animal Services when his time was up and he had nowhere else to go. Originally picked up as a stray, bravely wandering the streets of Bradenton, this fluffy guy is certainly ready for a furever home. Mifu is apprehensive about strangers, which is quite indicative of the Chow Chow breed's behavior. Though aloof with strangers, Mifu will be eternally loyal and sociable to his companion person. Once Mifu gets to know you, he adores playing and is even comical in his playfulness. Though, because of his wariness around strangers, we insist that he go to a home with no small children, as they may be a bit too excitable for him. This reserved beauty has an incredible presence-he has curious eyes, a luscious sable coat, and an independent spirit. Chow Chow's are referred to as Songshi Quan, which in norther China, means "puffy-lion dog, and Mifu absolutely fits this description. Are you ready to give this puffy-lion dog the home he deserves? Come on in and give him a meet!
