 hello i don't know if anyone is still on here (it says no ones updated in 32 weeks) but its the chow chow community out there so i just wanted to share pics of my dog who's a chow chow mix. i hope it's ok that he not a pure breed but i have to get my dogs form the humane socity because i really like saving them form being put to sleep, and there's not too many pure breeds there. well here he is his name is vader and we got him when he was 10 months old now hes a year and a couple months. he is a big sweet heart and gets allong great with my 4 birds, he never tries to bite them and he knows to stay way from them if they fly on the floor so he doesn't hurt them. he also gets really upset when people yell at each other, he just wants everyone to be happy!

him now

FACE OF JESUS? [Jan. 17th, 2007|12:31 am]

I got some pics of the chow when I fed him this morning. When I uploaded the images from my phone to the computer I swear I can see the face of Jesus in the mats on his back hip? Does anyone else see it too? Am I crazy?

This morning on the way to work I saw the abandoned chow and was able to get him to eat from my hand out of my car window! Maybe with time I can get him to trust me more... I had my cell phone handy and was able to snap some pics. Sorry they aren't very good!

Chow in need... [Jan. 9th, 2007|12:04 am]

Dear Community:
I am writing to you because there is Chow that needs help, and I have exhausted all local sources... I am hoping that you can help this dog or at least be able to refer me to someone in Arkansas who will...
I live in Benton, AR just south of Little Rock in a very rural area and I drive by the dog every day on my way to work/town... When I was certain the dog was abandoned, I called the city animal control and the county humane society and neither of them will help with the situation because we are "out of city limits." I also contacted some local dog rescue groups that I found on Petfinder.com, but I have yet to find one that will foster a "BULLY" dog.
I have been feeding the dog, but I cannot do that forever... The dog needs to be placed in home or put down... It cannot continue to suffer... please help with this!

Ella Brown

PS- I can send pictures and more information if needed.

Interested in chows [Sep. 24th, 2006|10:38 am]

My grandmother was born in Hong Kong in 1913. She's obviously elderly now but very occassionally comes out with a piece of information about her life before WW2 when she lived in the city of her birth (we're British, which is why part of my family was in Hong Kong for a couple of generations). A few months ago she told my sister that when she was little her family had owned two dogs, both chows. One stayed at home to guard the home and the other went with her father (he was in the Hong Kong police). We'd had no idea of this before!

However it has sparked my interest in the breed. Especially as after my fiance and I got our first dog recently we're already discussing the next one in a couple of years time (puppies house train faster than babies). Our first dog was my fiance's choice, even though he's devoted to both of us, and he's promised me that I get to choose the next. So as well as the aspect of family history I'm wondering how they are as pets. Might as well do plenty of research before I decide on a breed for the next dog or I might be after a third dog.

So I guess at the moment I'm just asking about other people's experience of having Chows. How do they do with other dogs? How do they cope with long walks? Just what kind of guard dogs do they make? And any other questions they allow people to tell their favourite stories about their chows. Thank you in advance for your responces.

i'm sorry if this post is inappropriate - if it is, let me know and i'll delete it ASAP.

so, obviously i'm new here. i actually had a couple of questions, and was hoping that someone could help me out.

my family is seriously considering adopting a chow chow/labrador mix. we've had many labradors in the past, but i can't honestly say i've ever had any experience with a chow chow. i've heard slightly mixed reviews about their temperaments and traits, and i wanted to know if someone here could "give it to me straight".

we have two cats, and a good deal of fenced in property for the dog to have fun in, but i'm mainly concerned about personality and disposition. i don't know if any of you have every heard of a chow/lab mix, but if you know anything about them specifically i'd love to hear it! otherwise, just general information (good and bad) on chows would help me out so much!

once again, i'm sorry if this post is inappropriate.

thanks so much!

My Chows [May. 20th, 2006|05:32 pm]

Below are individual pictures of some of the chows that I have bred and/or owned.  These are all smooth coats - three generations.

Hello.  My name is Cathy and I have been showing chows in conformation and obedience for well over twenty years.  I currently have three black smooth champion chows, which hopefully are pictured here with my entry.  

From left to right, they are Ch FlamingStar Simply The Best, OFA (Tina), Ch Sitze-Gou's RSVP in Glazz, CDX, OFA (Zorro), and Ch FlamingStar Unforgettable, OFA (Natalie).  

Tina just turned four, Natalie is about to turn six, and Zorro is eleven.  Zorro is the sire of Natalie, who in turn is the mother of Tina.  I also have a red smooth puppy out of Tina that I'm waiting to see how he turns out.  He is almost 4 months old.  I don't have any pictures of him yet. 

For those who may not be familiar with them, the smooth coat chow has always been around, just not as popular as the rough.  They were the predominant coat type in China, but the British brought back the roughs because they were more exotic looking.  I had the rough coat up until I got Zorro eleven years ago.  I have carpal tunnel and could no longer properly take care of the rough coats.  While the smooths are not wash & wear, they are considerably easier to deal with.  They still have a double, offstanding coat, but it is only 1-2 inches long with no feathering, mane, etc.

Anyway, I have a great deal of experience with the breed.  I guess I enjoy them because not only are the quiet and cat-like, they are stubborn and a challenge.  They won't do something just to make you happy like so many of the breeds used most commonly in obedience.  Instead, you have to find a reason for them to want to do it.  I've had anywhere from one to eight at anyone time since I acquired my first, and can't imagine not having them.

Oh, and by the way, if any of you happen to be InuYasha fans like I am, I write under the name doggieearlover (hence my id here).
