I found my chow in one of Carla's litters. He is a fantastic boy and very beautiful too! Carla is a person who breeds the dogs to provide happiness for her family and anyone who adopts one of the pups! She is very concerned about the physical and emotional health of her dogs. She does not want that any of her dogs to be placed in a precarious living arrangement and she is stern in her position that any pup not treated correctly will be returned to her and she will find a loving home for it! This is actually how I cave to have Kaiko! He is such a good boy but was originally with a couple who had decided that he was a aggressive pup, even at 8 weeks old! That is just a terrible way to treat a little puppy and after he was removed from that environment it took weeks to re-educate him to where he could be prepared to find a new home. That is where my good fortune came into play! I love my Kaiko and thank God every day for him! Thank you Carla and Peter!

"All chows should be like Amethyst...."
We found Carla after our last chow had passed -Amethyst, our new baby, is our fifth chow. We love chow chows and Carla has provided the best environment and breeding we have ever encountered. However, this was best said by our Vet..."all chows should be like Amethyst -she has all the perfect chow characteristics, eyes, coat, proportion, coloring, happy, friendly, etc. etc.." Amethyst is our pride and joy and we learned so much about her before she even came home. Carla has a video cam that let's you watch your baby grow up during the firsteight weeks -we were even lucky enough to see Amethyst being born. In addition to the great breeding I think the love she was surrounded by was so important in her development. The whole family gives lots of love to these puppies. A sweet and precious little girl loved Amethyst and her baby brothers so much and taught her that Tinkerbelle is the best! You can't ask for more.

"Pretty Boy Floyd"
This was our first time getting a puppy from a breeder. What a wonderful experience!!! Carla was very helpful and knowledgeable. When we went to get Floyd, it was obvious how much she and her family love their Chow Chows. Floyd is a great addition to our family. We are planning on getting a sister for him in the near future and wouldn't think of getting her from anyone but Carla.

"The wonder that comes with those purple kisses"
First let me start with telling you how caring Carla Franchi is with this wonderful breed. I have had questions along the way and she has taken the time to answer me. She is very knowledgable and loves her furbabies, not once did I get the impression that she breeds just for money her contract alone shows the love and care that she has for this breed, and let me tell you how wonderful my Scarlett has turned out to be wouldn't trade for any other...thanks again Carla

I recently adopted an 8 month old puppy from Carla. He is an absolute joy, very well behaved, well socialized, healthy and happy! He has been in his new home for only two weeks and has a great relationship with my older, female chow. I highly recommend this breeder for many reasons: the level of communication, record keeping and medical care, the stringent screening of prospective adopters, excellent socialization and training of the puppies andthe general feeling of dealing with someone who loves what they do and adores their animals!! Thank you so much, Carla & Peter, for allowing me to adopt Casey...he has made our family complete and already brought us much joy.

Our Lil Chow"
Carla and husband Peter were very helpful and courteous to questions and or concerns. The process of shipping our lil guy to California went smooth as well. Carla is great at keeping the new parent informed all along the way. She continues her open lines of communication through e-mail and phone without hesitation. Our lil guy entered his new home with love and affection and thanks to Carla's training we had a headstart.

Top Notch Breeder"
I have purchased two puppies from Carla and both are healthy, beautiful dogs. Carla takes great care of the puppies and spends a lot of time with them. My first puppy was completely housebroken when I picked him up at 7 weeks. Watching the puppies grow up on the "puppy cam" was a real treat. I would never buy a Chow Chow puppy from anyone else.

What a blessing to have found Carla's Rhenagade Chows! I was lucky enough to buy two babies from the same litter. Since I live close enough to have picked my babies up in person, I can tell you that these babies are loved and well taken care of before they come to you!! If you live far away I can tell you that you have nothing to worry about in your choosing Carla and her chows. Thor and KoKo are just wonderful and have wonderfully sweet temperments.Congratulations if you are lucky enough to add one(or two!) of these chow babies to your family!!

Wonderful chows from a breeder who truly cares"
Carla loves her chow puppies so much. She does all possible to make certain they are getting good homes, hence an excellent contract that addresses the pups care. I lost my 2nd chow shortly after she turned 15. I was unsure if I was ready for another due to the tremendous pain I was dealing with from the loss...then I found Carla. After talking with her frequently, I decided to go for a visit. It was so obvious how much she cared for the breed and her babies. I now have 2 of her puppies and they are wonderful. It's so much fun seeing the different personalities. They LOVE people and are very fun loving chows. I could not recommend more highly that you speak with Carla Franchi if you are considering bringing a chow into your home as a family member.

RhenegageChows and Carla are outstanding! I have had two Chow Chows prior to my baby boy Niko that is from Carla. He is a wonderful big boy and an exceptional Chow. I fell in love with Carla from the get go. With being able to see him with her web cam, and her detailed contract (which I happen to respect alot), to Carla watching my baby boy while I was on vacation, to exceptional knowledge of the breed, I could go on and on. If you are truly a Chow lover you can not go wrong with her pups. Thanks Carla for my little joy.

"You Will Not Find A Better Breeder"
One word describes my experience with Rhenegade Chows: PHENOMENAL. Carla is a serious breeder that truly works out of a sincere passion for the Chow Chow breed. One of her top priorities is ensuring that all of her fur kids are placed with the right family. As a result, she tends to attract people who are equally passionate about the breed and truly care about doing all they can to help their chowdren thrive. DO NOT make the mistake of thinking that this is a breeder that is just trying to sell dogs. Being blessed with a Rhenegade Chow is being accepted into a family of serious Chow lovers who do not take the responsibility of owningone of these majestic dogs lightly. If/when I decide to get a companion for my puppy, Rhenegade Chows will be the ONLY place I go to.

"George is one great Chow Chow"
I did a lot of looking before I came across Carla and her Chows. I've had a chow as part of my life for 25 years and I'm very devoted to the breed. Well I have been so blessed! George who was born in September 2008 and joined me in November of 2008. I havea 10 year old Samantha, blue chow also. George is smart, extremely good looking and very very healthy. We are already walking 6 miles and he completes his first level training this week. Carla's care and continued interaction before and after George joining my home has made for a wonderful transistion. I've seen him since day one and held him at two weeks and new then he came from great stock. You can't go wrong dealing with Carla and her babies.

"Helpful & Honest"
We purchased Charlie from Carla 6 months ago, and are and have been completely satisfied with all aspects. She was very upfront about what was required on our part, and very helpful on all the aspects of owning a chow chow. We are so attached to Charlie, that we couldn't imagine not having him. She told us about his family background and suggested we visit another breeder to see for ourselves. Everything she told us was very honest and above board. I would recommend her to anyone, without any reservation or fear of any recussion.

"Best Puppies in VA"
I was shopping for my 5th chow and found Carla on this web site. My chow is beautiful. She is very smart and she picked up things fast like house broken and everything. I may decide for another one this year I will drive the 4 hours to see Carla. My little girl is so loving I can't wait to get up in the morning for her loves and to get home in the evening!

"A truely honest breeder"
My baby is now 6mo. old. She is every thingthat Carla said she was. Perfect! Carla really cares for her babies and sets up a web cam so you can see them grow up. Anytime I looked in, the area was spotless and the Chows well taken care of. I will buy my next Chow from Carla.

"Carla is thebest chow breeder!"
Hello all, When I was looking for a chow puppy, I browsed around the local breeder in my state and the neighboring states. I called each of them and tried to get the best feeling from talking to them. I finally got to talk with Carla, and right away I got the best feeling from a confident breeder and the trust just there immediately. When my puppy was born, I was chatting with Carla and was able to see the babies being born! How cool is that? It's just like being in the same room with them! In short, I was honored to get a puppy from Carla. She's the best and knows a lot about her chows down to the personality. She matched us with our puppy, Ewok, and we are very happy having Ewok as part of our family. In short, you will get a personal interaction with Carla as she will guide you throughout the process, especially if you are a first time chow puppy parent.

"A very caring professional breeder"
My family and I searched the web for a while trying to find a certain puppy...and did we luck out finding Carla Franchi who ownes Rhenegade Chows Chows. Carla is a very caring person and very concerned about her puppies...which is a true sign of great character. Some breeders can't get you out the door fast enough when they have the money in their hands. Not Carla! She also goes above and behind with allthe toys, books, lease and collar, etc. She makes sure you have every single thing you need to raise a well rounded Chow puppy. Carla also has her professional side with all the vet trips and tips. The signing and up-holding a contract...which above all,is meant for the best interest of the puppy. We brought home a beautiful black boy in December, his name is Maximus Decimus Meridias! He is pure joy! Thank you Carla, Rhenegade Chows! The Glenski Family ps...Leo, our persian cat and Sateena, our other chow, just love little Max!

"An Exceptional Experirnce"
We cannot say enough on behalf of Carla, her family, and her beautiful Chows. Her puppies are gorgeous, healthy, and our addition to our family is nothing short of pure joy. The buying experience was great, and Carla delivered on everything she promised, and more. She will be there for you, as she has always been for us. She is a caring and devoted breeder whose primary concern is the well being of the puppies. Our chow puppy has become the center of attention where ever we go. This is a testament to the quality of Carla's puppies.

"Best Ever Professional Caring!!!"
I have been in touch with Carla for over a month now. She has gone out of her way to email me pictures, do a home video so I could view her and her dogs, kennel and home. She offers so much for a very reasonable price. She has a deep love for all of her dogs and puppies and I did not want the color puppies she just had, I am very sad about that. But I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a healthy puppy and the extras that go with it. Staying in touch with the puppy parents also.
Beverly, October 23, 2007

"My baby girl NIkki"
I bought my chow from Carla even before she was born and through Belle's last couple of weeks, Carla keep me informed and sent me pictures. Once Belle was ready to bring those babies to the world Carla emailed me and kept me inform everytime a puppy was born with live pictures of my baby, The day I went to pick up my Nikki she sat with me and gave me some hints to care for my girl. My baby girl Nikki is five months now and she is a doll I wouldn't trade her in for the world. I highly recommend Rhenegade Chow-Chow to anyone who is looking forward to having a beautiful girl like mines. Thanks Carla

have to say that my experience with Carla has been a pleasure! My family & I for the 1st time are proud owners of our little chow "Yoshi", who is now 5 months old. We did our research & found that Carla's website was the most informative. I had a billion questions & yet every time she would answer them w/great ease. She guided us every step of the way. Having Yoshi has been a true blessing, he gets along great w/my 2 cats, is great w/kids. From time to time he gives the squirrels a good run! Knowing that he came from a great breeder like Carla really made the difference. Carla is not JUST abreeder she is feels like family, I call her Yoshi's Godmother! :)
