Rescue Me ID: 16-07-20-00543Nikota (male)

Chow Chow    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    A beautiful chow, I have had Nikota since he was 7 weeks old. He was a huge puppy and he is a huge dog. He is generally sweet and good natured but since I kept a now maturing male puppy from a litter with my female things things are not going so well. Nikota dominates his son. I tried several times to make myself put the son up for adoption but I have not been able to let him go. He is the most gentle chow I have ever had. In the meantime, Nikota has been jumping on his son and now the son wants to fight back. Lately, despite my attempts to stop him before he gets going, Nikota has begun ignoring my efforts. Twice now he has softly ... (Read More)growled at me. Of course, I corrected him but at nearly 70 years old, I am unwilling to take on this big boy and the chance of being bitten by him. I have decided to keep the son. Nikota needs someone who is experienced with chow chows. I have raised 7 chows since 1990 and this boy needs someone who is unafraid, strong-willed, but fair. He is an inside dog and is used to being treated kindly. Having torn my rotator cup in a fall a few months ago, walking and just generally caring for my dogs have become harder. After much thought I have had to admit that I should never have put 2 male chow chows together and that Nikota is becoming too much for me to handle. He has never had an altercation with other dogs but he does perk up and take notice when other dogs are walking behind us. He was born in May, 2013. He weighs about 75 pounds and his health is excellent. His shots are up to date and I can get a copy of his medical record, if necessary. He has shown no interest in children or other adults for that matter. He has shown no aggression toward them either. He's a typical chow. I will say that when my small grandchildren visit I keep my chow chows behind a gate and I keep the grandkids away from them. My older grandchildren can take them for walks. None of them has walked Nikota since he has gotten so big. I say that Nikota is somewhat dominant because of the troubles with his son. He has no problem with my female. They get along very well. He has never been around cats but he has seen them walk by and even come through the yard. I think he would chase them, if he could. He likes being outside. Because my yard is unfenced he has never been loose/off-leash, except at the dog park - where I fell. He also likes to ride in the car with the window down. He is still in tact and he has fathered some beautiful puppies which went to experienced chow chow owners. I never sent in his paperwork to register him but I have the registration application, if he is to be registered. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chow Chow in Massachusetts
    Chow Chow Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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.
