By the way Chows were bred to be guard dogs. They can be very aggressive. There must be a "restraint" gene that is weaker in some breeds of dogs than others. In Pitt Bulldogs and Chows the aggression gene is stronger and the restraint biting gene is weaker. At least that is my theory about what is going on. We once cared for a friend's dog, an Alaskan Husky (a bit larger and smarter than a Siberian Husky, which is a scary thought), that was really a great dog and really friendly, particularly to cats and kittens and other dogs...... except Chows.He absolutely hated Chows, and would attack them without provocation or warning. In one instance the dog was only 1/4 Chow, but he scented it and tried to attack.We knew there were no Chows living within about two blocks of us, so we didn't have a problem with taking him out in our yard, but we didn't take him anywhere else except on a leash - SOLELY because of the risk of crossing paths with a Chow; otherwise he was extremely well-behaved and obedient and stayed with us.
