Perhaps your mother's friend breeds the coyote style Chow????
Keen intelligence, an independent spirit and innate dignity give the Chow an aura of aloofness. It is a Chow's nature to be reserved and discerning with strangers. Displays of aggression or timidity are unacceptable. Because of its deep set eyes the Chow has limited peripheral vision and is best approached within the scope of that vision.

Mom's friend is Jill Crouch in Wisconsin you can find her info on the AKC website under breeder referral.

People will think what they want, I never said the dog would be perfect without proper socialization and handling but I can't agree that the majority of these dogs are ruthless killers.

Who said Ruthless killers?

And as always, the one (breeder) you know and have personal ties with is always the best.

Has the best dogs, best pedigree, best temperments, and trainablity.

Again, Why even waste my breath....

Sincerely,
Julie.

i hate blanket statements..i have met slap happy labradors and ones that would take off your head if you get to close..same for goldens, terriers, chis, rotties. mutts, pedigrees..and people..each dog should be "judged" on his own behavior..made up of his breeding, not breed, his handling and socialization. 20 years of working at 3 different kennels including one for one year that specialized in the show circuit means i am not speaking off the top of my head. We had a saint benard that was as loveable as they come..and i have a scar on my behinny from one that i actually clunked in the head with a shovel to get away from (no i didn't hurt him..but i did get out of his kennel before i was his dinner) come on folks..
was attacked by a pointer as a child too..the exact same breed as VIctor who wouldn't hurt anyone no matter what!
i could post a hundred different examples of the same thing over and over again.

A long legged, open faced, coyote looking Chow. The pet type Chow.

Let's take a time out, and count to 10 ....slowly. !!! Chows are beautiful dogs... but people have to understand their temperment and work with them from day one. Breeders and new owners.

honestly..those of you that posted the professed knowledge of this breed..how many have you personally physically worked with to base your opinion or is it based on the media which we have learned thru a zillion posts on pits is not objective and basically untrustworty?

Each breed has certain personality traits peculiar to that breed. These traits give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from these dogs. There are always exceptions but on the whole I would hope that most people would know not to walk up to a strange Chow and start petting it. Or a Borzoi. It is not generalizations, it is actually specifics based on familiarity with the various breeds.
