Reproductive health: an "odd ball" question.

Hello, Our boy, Morimoto, is just about 8 months old. We're planning to wait until he is at least 2 years old to grade his knees before deciding to neuter or not, since if he has solid knees it would be a shame to cut an even-tempered healthy male out of the stock. However, only one of his gonads ha...

Re: summer heat and shaving a chow?

If your pups are good about chewing hard snacks, or if you have an ice grinder for snow cones, you could give them some ice to munch on. I give my boy ice cubes in his water dish on really hot days, he fishes them out and crunches them. He also plays with them like a cat, though, so mind the wet flo...

Re: Buyer's paranoia

Thank you, Victory. I'll keep that list in mind as I continue communications with people. You're a priceless asset! :D I confess to having skimmed your posts via your profile to glean info from your answers to questions others have posted. That is a very good point, Bella. I hadn't thought of that.....

Re: Buyer's paranoia

Thank you, all, for your responses and great advice. We've moved our attentions to a more respondent breeder... lol now we just have to hope WE pass muster. Lining up our intended vets, budgetting ahead for socialization/puppy training classes and other costs. Much work to be done before hand. Still...

I reached out to a member of the Pacific NW Chow chow Club via her email on their site but haven't heard back from her yet. She may be busy or out of town. Ri...

I contacted a breeder through NextDayPets.com and although the puppy in the listing I responded to was from a prior litter (no longer available) she did have a litter from last month that she was open to deposits ...
