Only fit to live with children if properly socialized, the Chow Chow is generally a very strong willed, aggressive breed. Because they can be so bossy, this breed needs an overtly dominant owner, otherwise they may usurp your role as alpha and become a pain in the neck. Key to properly raising a Chow is to make sure there is no question in their mind that humans are in charge. If there is even a shred of doubt in your Chow Chow’s brain, they will run with it.
While the Chow Chow is known to come in solid red, cinnamon and cream, and black or blue, they can also be found in tan, gray, and sometimes even white (very rarely).
