Is the Chow Chow / Golden Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Chow Chow / Golden Retriever mix is a cross between a pure Chow Chow and a pure Golden Retriever, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. With any mixed breed, you can get an unpredictable result, and how the offspring of these two very different purebreeds might turn out is anybody's guess. If possible, get to know the dog first. If there's a lot of the Chow attitude, you need to be an experienced dog owner who knows how to socialize an animal that might otherwise be overly protective of its property and people to the point of representing an insurance liability.

Appearance / health:
The appearance of this mix is so variable that you'll have to look at the dog as an individual. Assume you'll need to do a lot of grooming.

Behavior / temperament:
All bets are off with this unpredictable mix. If you're a novice dog owner, you should either get to know the individual dog in question first or simply pass on this mix. The Chow Chow side of the family could mean you get an individual who needs special care and socialization. There is never a guarantee that the friendly, easy Golden side will dominate the dog's character.
