Featured dog of the day: Meet 'Chef' an adorable owner surrender

See also

On June 16, an adorable mixed breed dog was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif.

The dog, who is not quite three years of age, is named "Chef," and he has been identified as a white and tan English Cocker Spaniel and Basset Hound. Despite Chef's good looks, nobody has decided to take a chance on him, and he remains impounded behind the bars of his kennel run at the animal control facility.

On the Facebook page, United Hope for Animals, the following information is posted about Chef:

Chef is a gorgeous 2-year-old white-and-tan male English Cocker Spaniel/Basset Hound mix who came to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center as a stray on June 16th. Weighing 37 lbs, Chef is a happy guy who enjoys the company of other dogs and bonds quickly with people.

He has gorgeous, Appaloosa-like markings, long ears that appear as though they’ve been crimped, and a little nub of a tail that is always on the wag. He sits nicely for his handlers, appears to be housebroken, and kicks when you scratch him behind the ears. He could use some additional leash training, as he pulls a bit.

With a medium energy level, he will do best as an indoor pet in an adult household with another dog to pal around with and people to take him on walks.

The right person for Chef is out there somewhere - they just need to be found. Please take a moment to network this handsome dog's information to help make his adoption a reality.
