Chow Chows are a sturdily-built, double-coated dog that has fur resembling the mane of a lion. They are known for being extremely loyal to their owners. They are sometimes loyal to a fault quite literally. Their loyalty can make them overly territorial and protective of their owners.
Although Chow Chows are routinely kept as pets, many insurance companies have them on their list of high-risk dog breeds because of their tendency to become overprotective of their owners and because Chow Chows sometimes react aggressively towards strangers.
Chow Chow attacks can cause serious harm and, in some rare cases, can result in death. If you have been injured in a Chow Chow attack, it is very important that you contact a dog bite lawyer as soon as possible.

Owner’s Awareness of Aggression
When raised well, Chow Chows can be excellent loving pets. However, when any dog displays signs of aggression and that aggression is not dealt with properly, the dog can become a danger. Liability is often predicated in Texas upon the owner’s awareness of the dog’s prior aggressive tendencies. if you see signs of aggression in a Chow Chow, that may be an indication that the owner has been negligent in addressing past aggression.
To learn whether you can hold the dog owner responsible in your specific dog attack case, it is advisable to speak with a Houston dog bite lawyer.
