Yeah, the only downside would be catching them if they got loose ... imagine "instantly feral" AND small enough to hide under a car

The only dog that has ever bitten me was a chow mix that I really wanted to trust. He let me leash him, took treats from me, and was fine until the moment to go in the truck. He wouldnt jump in (how many really do) so when I went to leash muzzle him he bit me pretty good on the hand. However, I was very raw as an ACO and have learned since what my mistakes were and I don't look at chows differently really one way or another.

I'd have to agree with Jeff that they tend to usually run away. The breed I don't look forward to seeing in the field are Rotties. They are usually the ones that won't run and they just stand there and stare at you like....Come on Mr. ACO...just try it.

I have to agree (and I do not dislike any breed in particular ) but I have had to the most "scary" experiences with Chow Chows -they are by far the most aggressive dogs that I have dealt with. (by the way, I have a Samoyed)...

When people have asked me what type of dog gives me the most trouble I'm quick to tell them it's the Chow. I have a hard time reading any signals from their body language, they just seem to stare and expect me to make the first move...... I can't tell you how many Chow owners have told me that their dog even bites them. A chow I was familiar with was at large a while ago and knowing this dog was not friendly I called the owner at work and told him to come get his dog. I knew something was up when the owner put on leather gloves before trying to get his dog in the car. The dog attacked him. Even after that he tried to convince me it was a good dog. The end of the story is this Chow later bit a child and was ordered euthanized by the court.
In defense of the breed I will say that I have met some very nice Chows.

Outside of getting bit by a Rott, I had a Chow give me a pretty hard time. Was no fun.

I feel as though I should put the picture under quarantine. Just in case

I'm sure that hair dye is a GREAT thing to put that close to a dog's eyes...
