Chows aren't aggressive unless they aren't raised right. You have the pup at a young age, there is no reason for her to become aggressive. It is up to you to prevent it from happening.

My chow mix was raised with a young daughter, an older dog, and a dane mix of the same age. He died of old age at about 13 years old.
He was good with cats and ferrets too.
I think the key is good socialization. If you have kids let them get in on training and giving treats too.

My chow did start getting a little grumpy at about 12, but that was due to arthritus. And he never attempted to bite anyone.

I wouldn't worry about what breeds may or may not be present, just socialize, socialize, socialize, and do some research on proper training... You should be fine!
Best wishes! I am sure she will make a great family dog. And spaying at the earliest age your vet reccommends will help too. My chow mix was neutered at six months and never developed some unwanted behaviours usually associated with maturity.

I definately see lab in her face...did you say she DOES have spots on her tongue. Spots on a tongue is an a good indication there is some chow in a dog although not ALWAYS.

I say lab chow, it will be easier to tell when she is full grown though. Either way she is absolutely adorable!

You know you are right, I have a Lasha Apso and my mom would say they are snippy around kids, for 13 years through both births of of my children and she is such a sweet dog.

I should remember that the breed doesn't really matter. My dad has a mix and my kids could lay on her and she would not care. I will keep taking her out and meeting new people and places. I think I will need a little help on the training! Thanks for you input : )

Yes, she does have spots in the back of her tonge. Because she is a rescue I guess you never know what they are. But I just keep looking at her and wonder what breed I am looking for.

A friend just really confussed me and said maybe she even have some pit in her. She also said maybe some border collie/ lab!!

The minute I saw the pictures, the first thing that came to mind was Pyrenees. Not sure why but it did.

What a cutie!

I can see the chow with the lab/golden. The high set ears is what yells it at me.

I do not see any pit in her.

Whatever she's mixed with, she's awfully pretty
