Re: Chow puppy with pink nose?

I didn't buy her from a puppy store and I don't know and didn't really care how legitimate her registration was (she apparently was registered). She was in a bad situation so I adopted her... she had a unique rescue situation. Her eyes got darker but her nose and lips never did. It turns out that sh...

Re: Temper Tantrums

Rory's Dad, Royalty is a breeder dog turned rescue. She has a weird story. She came from a breeder in Alabama (Anderson's Chow Land, if I'm remembering it right) but her first owner decided she did not want her (because of allergies, apparently) so she left her chained up in the back yard and was tr...

Temper Tantrums

Royalty is a little over 4 months old now. Since about 3 weeks ago, she has been throwing "puppy tantrums" when she gets in trouble or when she doesn't get her way. This doesn't always happen but she definitely has about 3 tantrums a week. My husband is starting to dislike her all together...

Re: Chengden Chows and PuppyFind breeders in general

Well that's great. I get their name wrong sometimes, so I apologize for that. Haha. I would say they are a good route. Buying a dog from a good breeder will cost you a few thousand dollars at least. Adopting a rescue (especially from Chow Rescue of Central New York) will give an abandoned dog a &quo...

Re: Chengden Chows and PuppyFind breeders in general

I would be wary of using any online "puppy search" websites. They are magnets for scammers and puppy mills. I'm not familiar with Chengden Chows though. What state do you live in, if you don't mind my asking? I can direct you to some certified breeders if that's the route you want to go. O...

Re: Riley Health issues

Yeah, he might just have an ear infection. Its not uncommon and it can cause some dizziness and poor balance. As long as he doesn't have any diarrhea and he's not vomiting or doing anything else that's significantly different or unsettling, I wouldn't worry about it. The vet will probably put him on...

Re: Riley Health issues

Well if he is prone to infections, he might have an ear infection. It seems to happen more in hot, humid climates. Is he shaking his head a lot or scratching at his head more often than usual? Also, does he spend more time indoors than he does outside?

Re: Should I stud my perfect chow?

Hi, and welcome! Your chow is very beautiful, I agree. Unfortunately, I don't have much advice when it comes to this kind of thing. I would think that he would be a great stud though and I would love to have one of his puppies! If you're not getting a fast enough response here, I would get in contac...

Re: Help! Chow puppy now HATES people

Thanks, for the continued support here. Last week, I might have made a bold move. I brought Royalty back to PetCo and made a point to stay for an extended period of time so that she could meet/see/smell new people. I have been training her at home and she is very good at doing whatever I tell her on...

Re: Too friendly...

Hi! Welcome! I recently got a chow puppy as well. Yours is adorable! Anyway, back to your question...How old is he? He might just have a really sweet temperament. He might start to show an instinctive urge to be protective around 8-11 weeks of age. Most people, however, would LOVE to have a friendly...

Re: Help! Chow puppy now HATES people

Thanks, Rory's Dad. This makes sense. She did get happy rubs and I even gave her a few treats during her bath. She has been much more well-behaved since then, but I don't know how long it will last. She's definitely not a bad dog, but she can be a lot when she gets the "puppy crazies" and ...

Thanks for your experience insight, applebear. It gives me hope... Today was a discouraging day.

I'm glad you were able to spend 14 great years with what I'm sure was a great companion. :) And its good to h...

Royalty just met our neighbor (a man) while we were on a walk today and thankfully he had experience with chows and he fell in love with her (called her "teddy bear" about 15 times lol) so he wasn't put off by her little gruffs/barks initially. I told him to let her sniff him and pet her c...

Rory's Dad, thanks for the advice and reassurance. I brought her to a class I teach a few weeks ago and she had a lot of fun.

Royalty does have whitish colored claws! So I guess that confirms it: She is a cream chow puppy. Thanks everyone for your help on this!

Long post. Bear with me, please! My now 9 week old chow puppy, Royalty, seems to absolutely HATE strangers now. She was comfortable and calm with strangers since she was about 6 weeks old. She wasn't friendly, just indifferent. She let people pet her, she would accept treats, she didn't growl, bark ...

Re: Chow puppy with pink nose?

Thanks for the replies. She also has blonde/white whiskers so, from what I've read, I'm guessing she probably is a cream chow. At first, I also thought she was a cinnamon chow. In fact, we almost named her Cinnamon. Haha.

Very confusing!!

Re: Chow puppy with pink nose?

She also has light brown/pink paw pads so some people have been telling me she is a cream chow that just happens to have a darker hue. I've just never seen this before with such a young puppy.
Thanks for the reply, applebear. I was starting to think no one would ever respond to me lol
