Puffy lion dog charmer

By Mindy Gill

The traditional Chinese name for the Chow Chow dog breed translates to puffy lion dog. With a distinctive appearance, shaggy mane and independent spirit, it is easy to see.

And that’s exactly how owner Will describes his Chow, Toby.

“He’s like a big cat,” he says. “I just love the nature of the dogs, they’re very calm. They’re not like regular dogs. They don’t jump on people, they don’t want to be petted, they just want to hang out. They’re very loyal to their one owner.”

Will takes Toby down Docklands pier three times a day. Passers-by love to see him on the daily walk and will often stop and have a pet.

Working from his home office on a winery business for the past five years, Will only adopted Toby earlier this year.

“It’s a good distraction sometimes from when you have those bad moments or whatever. He’s always just hanging around and cheering you on,” says Will.
