    Leo the Lion needs a home. I have had Leo since 2011. I love my dog! He is 30 pounds and is perfect for a small apartment. He is 6 years old. He can be snappy and if you are too close to his comfort zone, he will snarl or snap at you. He bit my then fianc%BD%BDe who got too close to him, while he was sleeping. He also bit a little child 5 years ago when she was trying to steal his food. In the case of my fianc%BD%BDe some stitches were required. The little girl was released on the same day w/a band-aid. He is not a dog for everyone and certainly not for a family with little kids. He works well with adults, preferably if they are ... (Read More)males. I got him when I was single and he created a strong bond with me, to the effect that he got overly protective of me and my home. He is a very very good guard dog! If there is more than 1 person at home, he will probably develop a bond w/1 of you and be on the guard w/others. Ideally he would be adopted by a single male w/his own home or apartment. He also hates cats! He really really hates cats! So please no cats at home! Otherwise he will be a pissed off dog! I think one of the reasons he went after my fianc%BD%BDe was b/c she brought a cat into the relationship and that silly cat was always snarling and hissing at him. Sometimes he would take it and whine like a puppy, other times he would get ticked off and try to eat the cat! It was hilarious! Also you need to build trust w/him. He is not a lap dog! More a guard dog. Having said that, once he has developed the trust w/you, his golden-retriever side comes along and he can be an absolute puppy! I have taken Leo to public parks and camping w/o incident with my wife. He loves the outdoors! And will follow you everywhere. I used to take him to the Bed Bath and Beyond in DC. And he is super cute! I am really hoping that Leo who has brought me so much of joy, can also bring the same joy to you. I am giving him away b/c we are planning to have kids soon and he is not good w/kids. I think its all the jumping around from kids that drives him crazy. As an added bonus, if you are away and need me to sit him, I would love to do so! He truly is the best dog ever!! I love him to death. I got him when my ex cheated on me, and I wanted a dog that would be a symbol of fidelity - and he sure is! He truly is Man's Best Friend! I have often said that if I were to die tomorrow, Leo will be on my grave waiting for me to rise. I love him so so much! Another perfect home for him could be a couple w/a back yard and other dogs. He has no issue with other dogs and tends to leave them alone. He is however afraid of dogs that are bigger than him. I am hoping that the family that adopts him has other dogs or has experience dealing w/a chow's temperament. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chow Chow in D.C.
    Chow Chow Dogs can make good pets in D.C. if they match your IifestyIe. The Chow Chow is a big furry breed whose name literally means Puffy Lion Dog. Chow Chows are loyal companion animals but can sometimes be stubborn, obstinate, and overprotective against strangers. Chow chows need to be handled by a firm master. Chow chows can be aggressive with other pets but most are good with kids. Chow chows can live in an apartment and are equally good as inside or outside dogs. Daily walks help stave off behavior problems, although Chow Chows can be resistant to exercise.
