This post has stuff about a previous relationship. My perspective has changed
Our friend is giving away a Chow and Mary and I are thinking about getting Ella a new friend. But is a Chow a good choice?
Most pups will adapt nicely to a multi-animal household. A number of our pups are living in harmony with other dogs, cats, even birds. Chow Chows can be trusted around children, assuming that the parents supervise play activities. No large dog should be trusted with a child alone, until it is a certainty that the child will not abuse the dog and that the dog will not play too roughly and injure the child.
UPDATE : Warning! The website that I got this information from is crazy. If you’re prone to seizures, heart-attacks, or are pregnant, maybe you shouldn’t visit it.
Instead, check out Chow Chows on Wikipedia here. Why didn’t I just go to Wikipedia to begin with? I don’t know, but next time I will remember.
