does my chow have separation anxiety?

Charlee Bear is not the destructive type at all. I'm sure most of you know chow's are not very destructive dogs if they get proper exercise daily, which Charlee Bear does. Anyways; everytime my husband and I leave for longer than an hour she will get in the trash and shred things all over the kitche...

charlee bear is 8 and a half - 9 months old.... she was born in march i believe. she isn't very big at all, she still looks like a puppy. i know chows are supposed to be on the bigger side and she isn't at all. she probably only weighs about 35 lbs and she eats plenty! she is just very small in size...

i socialize my chow chow a lot! she seems to be friendly to almost anyone. we live on a military base and maintenance came in our house one day when we wasn't home and charlee bear was roaming free in the house. i think them just coming inside our house without us knowing was uncalled for and rude; ...

why do people think chows are one of the most dangerous dogs

Almost every chow chow I have ever met was always friendly and lazy... I did however; know chows that were aggressive and every single one that was aggressive was tied outside to a tree with a dog box. I think if I were a chow with all that fur having to sit out in 90 degree weather while children p...

Okay; thanks everyone for the replies. I asked about when she will stop growing because she doesn't seem like she is full grown yet; i'd say she only weighs about 35lbs. and I always keep an eye on charlee bear (my chow chow) when she is outside.

it looks to me like his tongue is spotted. with some pink and some black. if this is the case he is not pure bred. if the tongue is FULLY black he is pure bred. WRONG! A pure bred chow can even have a fully pink tongue. It is a fault, but it does happen. Especially in the lighter colored chows. Eve...
