Just try and resist those puppy dog eyes... can't do it can ya? Dom, the chunkiest of all monkeys, is named after jolly actor Dom Deluise. Even though his rolls are adorable, we do have Dom on a serious diet so now he's on the road to being a lean, mean snuggle machine. In the meantime, we're loving every ounce of his goofy, derpy being!
Dom was wandering the streets of Long Beach when he was hit by a car and picked up by Animal Control. He was taken to an emergency vet where he was treated by Dr. Becky Skover for a dislocated elbow. Dr. Skover fell so in love with Dom that she decided to reach out to us to ask if we'd help find a home for the "cutest, nicest, chubbiest" Chi you ever did see.
When Dom was taken to the Long Beach Animal Shelter we had to wait 6 whole days during the holding period before we could beak him out. It killed us to know that he was stuck in the shelter after going through so much. But in those 6 days, he made a lot of friends at the shelter! When our amazing foster Kim went to pick him up, different shelter employees commented about how sweet he was and want to say goodbye to him.
Dom instantly bonded with his foster mom, Kim, and currently loves to follow her around the house like a very snorty shadow. Even though he has a big blue cast on while his elbow heals, that doesn't stop him from running around and playing with the other dogs in the house! He gets along great with other dogs. He also gets along with cats, chickens, turtles, chinchillas, birds and guinea pigs because he happens to live in a foster home with tons of rescue animals! Dom had no idea how lucky he was to be going home with Kim - a rescue superhero!
Dapper Dom is currently a whopping 16.5 lbs, estimated to be 1-3 years old, is neutered and up to date on vaccines. He is located in the Los Angeles, CA area.
