Need Advice from all of you Wise Chow people

First of all, thank you to everyone who has welcomed me/tolerated me/made me feel comfortable here as a non-chow owner, but a chow rescuer. There is a friend of mine who is having problems with one of her chowdren (he is VERY mixed), so I thought I would come here for hopefully some advice. Several ...

LOL on the Teletubbies comment.
You have beautiful children! Or I should say children and chow-dren? :)

Do you want interviews with rescuers, animal control officers that had to save animals from animal hoarding cases or are you just looking for printed material? The printed stuff looks excellent so far. you may also want to look at the primarily cat sites too because people can more easily hoard cats...

Okay everyone I feel as though I have to defend myself for giving my girl chow to my close friend. I am sorry if you felt I was attacking you - but it is necessary to know all the facts and ask honest questions in order to help. Some people - not saying you - don't really want "help", they want to ...

Maxwell and Yoshi tolerate eachother, they can be together in the same room at the same time or outside together but I don't trust them alone together. Yoshi started it by playing too aggressively, Maxwell took it as fighting, now he just growls when ever he sees Yoshi. I would be very cautious, be...

Thanks for the help, My male chow is very laid back, not really agressive. Ideally I would like to have another male chow it seems as though they are better tempered than the females. I had the female and male for over a year together, but the fighting kept getting worse. She would even attack him ...

Sometimes its not a "chow" issue. I think sometimes people tolerate inapropriate behavior and just give the excuse "the chow is being a chow." surely individual dogs can have a lower boiling point than others so to speak and that's with any breed - but when you have a young dog or a baby and a young...

I learned something new today to....

As some of you know, I try to find rescues for dogs at kill shelters and often try to wade through the sea of "chow mixes" that are really purebred chows with bad haircuts, flat coated retrievers, or another breed to try to alert the apropriate rescues. Anyway, this is a new one for me - one gal tho...

Do we really have to label a mix as a specific breed? When I was a kid (aging myself here) a mix was called a mutt and that was okay. I know we are a label obsessed society, but is that helping or hurting the adoption process? Personally, i don't think labels are necessary. And at adoption events "...

You guys are my heros for rescuing this sweetie and keeping her out of being taken to a shelter. As you all know, chows that have had experiences like this can be a little withdrawn at the shelter and without someone on staff that recognizes that they are nice kids, just need to be made comfortable,...

And a flat coated retriever labelled chow mix to...

I just have to ask you guys. maybe its not a question but sort of a little rant. I do a lot of crossposting for dogs at kill shelters, etc, and am trying to get some out of the habit of automatically labelled a dog with a black spot on the tongue a chow mix. not t change the world but shelter manage...

It is not a "differing view!"! Intact dogs don't "obey" - and only breed when you decide you want them too. Any moment is fair game. Its biology. No opinions there! No excuses there! And spaying and neutering isn't just about puppies, it is for the overall health of the dog. And AKC papers don't imp...
