General discussions about Chow Chows.

Hi everyone! Thank you for allowing me to join. I am going to be providing a 'fospice' home to a 14 year old chow chow mix starting Monday. He's blind, mostly deaf, and in overall very poor shape. I do not have any experience with this breed so I have been trying to learn as much as possible to get ready for him. He seems to have a very submissive personality and is sweet and suprisingly social when meeting new people and the other dogs at the pound. He was dumped there by his previous owners and I can't stand to see him there any longer. We have three other dogs; a basset mix, german shepherd, and a chinese crested. All are used to me fostering often so they are great with others and have very laidback personalities. I'll be taking him in for a checkup and bloodwork on Tuesday at my vet. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips or advice for me (especially if you have a senior chow chow already that's sensory impaired)? It's greatly appreciated and thanks!!
