A few weeks ago i got a one year old golden retriever Chow mix. He is absoulty adorable and truely a great puppy. I have a set of 18 month old twins and an 8 year old daughter. Ive always wanted a golden retriever and i know that they are Great family dogs. Simon ( our dog ) seems to be perfect around the babies, lets them do giddy up on them, easily and ffriendly takes treats from there hands, plays ball with them etc etc.. Doesnt mind if they are petting or kissing him while he is eating and snuggles with them when they are in bed. I have heard from a few people that chow chows are viscious and that i was stupid getting one even if it were mixed. I have done a few google researches on chow chows and havent really seen anything that pertained to them being visioucs dogs.. and simon seems to love my children as they do him.. is there any truth that they turn on their owners? is there any truth to that they are visicuos unfamily dogs? I am really concerned due to the fact that i have thse 3 young children.. but like i said he seems to love and adore them. thank you kinldy for your thoughts, advice and considration

I used to have a chow when I was a young adult. It was friendly to me but it was not to anyone else. It bit my sisters hand and she had to have stitches. She was only trying to feed it. I had it put to sleep because it was very unfriendly.
