So my neighbor several houses down as been pestering me about helping him to find a reputable Chow breeder. They don't have a dog at this point in time (nor any other animals), but he has had Chows in the past. They feel now that their kids are old enough to safely bring a dog into the home.
The problem is the breeders that come into our clinic are your typical bybs will extremely ill tempered dogs that are eith way over the standard size or just look nothing like the standard.
He has no preferences on color or anything like that, but wants a well proportioned dog with the appropriate breed temperament. He's also not looking to spend $3,000 either.
We are located right outside of Baton Rouge, LA so any help I could get would be greatly appreciated.
