Chow Chows are fantastic companion dogs and their beauty attracts many people. Before adding a Chow Chow to your life, please peruse our guides and see if this is truly the breed for you and your circumstances. Make very sure what is involved in buying a puppy, and be committed to this pup for life. Decide beforehand not to ever do, or support, irresponsible breeding. When possible, seriously consider adopting a rescue, but first read our guides on how to deal with a potentially confused Chow Chow. Chow Chows do not do well in Rescue situations, as they do not cope well with the challenges of life in a shelter. Many individuals involved in rescue have preconceived ideas and prejudice about the unique character of the Chow Chow, and thus are quick to discard a Chow Chow as a poor candidate for rescue.
Enjoy the journey of adding a Chow Chow to your life - they are companions without equal!
