Chow Chow dogs are known for their unbearable cuteness. But looks could really mask one’s personality and temperament, including these cuddly creatures. These dogs can be very aggressive and hostile to strangers and other animals because of their fiercely protective and territorial disposition.
In fact, according to a study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), out of 238 dog bite-related deaths from 1979 to 1998, eight of them were caused by Chow Chows.
Despite the territorial and protective nature of Chow Chows, they should not be treated inhumanely; instead, owners of such dogs should be committed in putting up the ante in raising and training their pets to avoid dog bites or attacks.
