Shih Tzu Chow Chow Mix named Benny

Everyone thinks that this Shih Tzu, Cocker Spaniel, and Chow Chow mutt is a German Shepherd puppy! We had him DNA tested though. He is almost a year old and 20 pounds. He will probably look like a 3 month old Puppy forever and I am okay with that! I love his curly ears and his very dedicated personality! He is a one person dog and very loyal!

The Chow Chow is known for being aloof with strangers but a dedicated family dog usually bonding with one family member more than any other. That is exactly our Benny. He could do without strangers, but loses it if I leave a room. Just like the classic Shih Tzu personality he has to follow us from room to room. I often trip over him because his is always by my feet.

A playful dog like the Cocker Spaniel but he does tend to be a little stubborn at first. This could be all three breeds. He has that wide chow chow smile but looks nothing like his dominant breed Shih Tzu. Although he may not look like one, he was very difficult to house train which is another common personality trait of the Shih Tzu. They are also notorious for being a fearful dog, which Benny can be at times. Luckily the guard dog comes out (I assume the chow has something to do with that) when it is necessary and he will bark if he senses someone near the door, or if I seem nervous walking by people at night.

He has a pretty low energy level and is content chewing on some of his toys and laying in bed with me. He also doesn’t shed at all. I have no idea why but I have never seen a single black hair on anything, and his hair is pretty long! It was love at first sight through that pound kennel and the best decision I ever made!

From Joy: Results from a DNA test showed that Astro is Border Collie, Australian Cattle Dog and Siberian Husky. While his physical appearance fits with that, none of those breeds dominates his personality. He is an obviously intelligent Working Dog but he doesn’t “eye” like a BC or hunt/run like a husky. If anything, he is like a very chill ACD without the need to chase or drove. In fact, he likes nothing better than to snuggle with or hug a human if he is not working. He was rescued from a high kill shelter. Rescuers found him roaming the streets of a gang-ridden urban area and covered in dirt, scabs and parasites. He was fearful, broken and within himself at the shelter when I first saw him.

Second Chance at Life

He must have had a good start in life as it soon became apparent he was fully housebroken, heel trained and loved to be around small children and babies. But his time on the streets had made him reactive and fear-aggressive towards large or unneutered male dogs. As I mentioned, he is extremely smart and is overcoming his trauma through diligent behavior modification training.

One important aspect of this is to make sure he gets enough exercise to keep him calm. I currently take him out 5-6 miles every morning for an off-leash run. This keeps him fit, calm and ready to work when asked. His first-time recall is about 95% and we are starting hand-signal and field training. He is becoming more comfortable with his canine brethren and now has a friendly “pack” of large dogs he can hang out with on the weekends. Astro may never be completely reliable around strange male dogs, which would prevent him from becoming a competitive agility or performance dog, but he has all the tools otherwise. Now that he is healthy and fit, he weighs 42-43 lbs with a 26″ girth. A wonderful boy all around, I am lucky to have found him.

We also have cody who is my oldest dog. Cody is a 12 year old German Shepherd mix 2. I got him at the Brevard Animal Shelter as well. Originally I got rocky because Cody, my 12 years old, he needed a buddy. So when I brought Cody to the meet and greet they got along so well. Then when Rocky got home it was absolutely amazing & they get along so good. Both my dogs bring me & my family & friends such joy and happiness. I am truly blessed to have both of them.

This is Ace is a Blackmouth Cur Pit Bull mix.  Ace is a playful, outdoor-loving dog. He loves to ride on the golf cart and he is always getting his nose into everything.

Ace is about 60 lbs. He is not the most intelligent dog that ever lived, but he sure is sweet.

He barks when strangers come up to his owner’s house, but not excessively. Just a few barks to let his people know that someone is there. He has never been a big fan of food. Ace will take it or leave it most days. He loves water hence chasing the water from the garden hose makes him happy although baths are not his favorite.

Our dog is a Chow Chow Labrador Retriever Mix. Sasha is a very easy-going dog. Truly a Lab personality. She has a purple tongue. We did a DNA test on her. It came back as 75% undetermined, and the remaining 25% mostly Lab, and some Chow. Who knows what the undetermined part is. Maybe German Shepherd Dog. She certainly has the coat for it. She gets along great with her Miniature Schnauzer brother. She is a snuggle-bug with her human family.

From Nicholas: Huck is one quarter chow, Beatle,black lab, and boxer. He is smart to say the least. He is known for figuring thing out on his own even if they are complex.

He has the perfect temperament. He is loving loyal the chow being only a quarter makes it so he has just the right amount of protective instinct in him. He is great with children and other dogs loves the water and will play for hours if you if you let him.

He is not to big at all. He is about the size of a small black lab. When he was a puppy he was a bit spiteful if you did not get to the door fast enough to let him out he would go right in front of you and watch you as he did his business. Will not hesitate to put himself in harms way to protect you. Despite being 3 years old he is still as soft as can be and his skin is still fairly stretchy All in all great dog and companion.

Annie is a Greyhound Labrador Retriever mix rescue dog. We have had pure bred labs in the past. She looks a lot like a lab but has a more narrower head and longer nose, she did not have the layer of fat of a lab and her hair is smooth and soft and not course and water proof like a lab.

We knew she was a mix but when we saw her run the first time we were wowed. We found out that she could jump straight up in the air 5-6 feet (pogo).

There was a lot of other characteristics that were not lab. She is not a chewer and she is somewhat neurotic needing order and a schedule and routine, she will not eat when you look at her and only at a specific time of the day.

So not lab, and so when someone suggested that she had greyhound in her. We read up on the greyhound/lab breed and saw pics that looked just like her we figured it out. She is smart as a whip and is a lap dog even though she weighs 53 pounds, very very loving.

Sam is a big goofy giant. He is a tall lean build weighing in at 90 lbs. He is a Great Dane Redtick Coonhound Mix. Coat patterns matches a Redtick Coonhound however body structure like a Great Dane. – We believe that there is another breed in there somewhere!

In the house he is a typical Great Dane – super relaxed, sleepy and big lap dog. However when we go outside he is pure hound – high energy level, extremely high prey drive and is extremely focused on scents. He has currently dug three holes in the backyard in what we think is an attempt to look for animals. Sam has already found three mice houses since we have had him.

He requires lots of exercise so he goes for many hikes and bike rides. Unfortunately he will not fetch – he would much rather just explore doing his own thing. He is very independent that way.

He is EXCELLENT with children – very respectful and gentle. He is great with other dogs and strangers -we are working on socializing with cats. If they run he will chase however cats that hold there ground he gets along with. He rarely barks – however he will whine on occasion if he is anxious.

Rescue Dog

Sam is a rescue and so when we got him he had a few issues. We have had him for almost 2 years and he responded very well to training so most of his issues are completely gone.

He is an extremely intelligent and friendly dog. He is the best thing that has ever happened to our family and we just love him to bits! We are forever grateful that we have him in our lives – he is so deserving of a wonderful life.

Sam is a Great Dane/Coonhound mix – or so we have been told. His past owners surrendered him to a kill shelter in Kentucky sometime in the February – March 2015 because they couldn’t afford the food – I later adopted him in April 2015. His old name was either Cooper or Copper, the rescue organization that saved him from euthanasia named him cooper-copper.

I would love to know where Sam came from. I would like to know more about where he came from.. I know it was not a good place since he came in 35 pounds underweight and very malnourished – but I try to believe that they really did love him and that they really couldn’t afford the food. I also want to know what breed he actually is and his real age! I know its a long shot but any information I can get would be amazing!

From Sarah: Elijah Blue is such a hoot!! He jumps up and hugs me around the waist when he welcomes me home. When I rescued him from a high kill shelter, he weighed 65 lbs. He was supposed to be already fully grown. He now weighs 80 lbs, so I guess he still had more growing to do!! He is now a year and a half so he should now be done, right?

He is an ambassador of good will to all dogs since he hasn’t met a dog he doesn’t like!! But the best part about him is his eyes. That husky dad sure gave him his good looks, and the American bulldog build, coloring and coat are standard with the breed!!
