    They were bred from the mongols dogs. It's an old breed and DNA is closer to wolves. The mongols bred to them guard the herds against wolf. They are a family dog and very loving to those they know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-jarUA3SHc

  57. Wiley Rojas says:

    they are very aggressive, our original male chow was very territorial, and only listened to my father, during his reign, yes reign, strays and other dogs from the neighborhood would not pass in front of our house, they would cross the street with their tails behind their legs, or just turn away, it actually broke the leg of a german shepherd that fancied himself as the big thing, the shepherd tried to bite the Chow's neck, biting only it's mane, and the chow bit the sheperd's leg, braking it, this all happened in seconds, in our yard, we had to throw hot water on them to separate them, as they were in a vicious mood, I must say that the Shepherd entered our yard looking for trouble tough, and it's owner actually enticed him to attack our chow.

    Our family's pecking order was Dad, then the Chow, then the rest of us hahahahahaha.

    Bred For:

    Guardian, cart pulling, hunting

    Coat:

    Length: Medium/short

    Characteristics: Double coat, straight

    Colors: Red, black, blue, cinnamon, cream

    Overall Grooming Needs: High

    Club Recognition:

    AKC Classification: Non-sporting

    UKC Classification: Northern Breeds

    Prevalence: Common

    The chow chow is a medium-sized dog ranging in height from 17 to 20 inches and in weight from 50 pounds to 75 pounds (23 to 34 kilograms).

    The chow chow is a square dog with post-like straight legs. The straight legs contribute to a somewhat stilted gait.

    The chow chow has erect ears, a broad skull and a tail curled up over the back. The trademark characteristic is, of course, the blue/black tongue. The facial wrinkles (often obscured by hair) give the chow chow a scowling expression. For his size, the chow chow is a strong, sturdy dog.

    It has two coat types. We are most familiar with the rough or longer coat. This is a straight, off-standing coat, which gives chow chow puppies a fuzzy, teddy bear appearance. The smooth coat is a shorter variation. Both coat types have a dense undercoat. Chow chows are most commonly seen in red or black coloration, but any solid color is acceptable.

    Personality:

    Chow chows are not usually social, outgoing dogs. They tend to be aloof with strangers and can be aggressive with other dogs. This is fitting with their history as guard dogs for homes and livestock. Early socialization to other dogs, pets and people is important. Chow chows may become nuisance barkers if their alarm barking is not controlled.

    Chow chows are fairly intelligent but they have both an independent and a stubborn streak, so training them can be a challenge. To do well in competitions, they require a firm, patient trainer who has plenty of creativity. Chow chows are fiercely protective and need training to control this guarding tendency.

    Living With:

    Chow chows are devoted to and protective of their families. To make them good family pets, they need plenty of early socialization including exposure to children. Chow chows do best with training to clarify their position in the family or they can become dominant. Despite the challenges of training, some chow chows compete and do well in obedience and agility.

    Grooming varies with the coat type. A rough-coated chow chow does best with a daily grooming to keep him free of tangles. Smooth-coated dogs can be groomed briefly once or twice a week. Special attention should be paid to keeping the eyes and the facial folds clean because the profuse coat can retain dirt and debris.

    History:

    The chow chow is perhaps the most ancient of the Chinese breeds of dogs. The breed can be traced back for thousands of years, and it is often questioned whether the chow chow developed from spitz-type dogs or whether spitz-type dogs developed from the chow chow.

    The chow chow was a dog of many hats right from the start. These dogs have been known as sled pullers, hunters, livestock guarders and, unfortunately for them, dinner. The very name chow chow may come from the Chinese "chou" for edible, although most historians feel that the name is from the slang for curios, with the chow chow most certainly being an Oriental curio.

    The chow chow reached the Western world in the late 1800s and began a rise to popularity, which has landed it in the top-10 American Kennel Club breeds. The breed has not fared so well in its native land where many chow chows were eliminated during the cultural revolution.

  73. Karl Bernal says:

    I miss my Chow Chow… we found her in an alley, so we named her Allie. She was my best bud for about 10 years. I moved out of the house, and she became my mom's dog. Then one day Allie couldn't stand up anymore and we had to put her down.

    I still remember her paws going limp when the drugs killed her in the vet room. Part of me died that afternoon with her.

  87. Peter Walker says:

    According to the American Kennel Club the Chow is statistically the second most dangerous dog breed in the US.
    This is likely because many owners fail to appreciate the temperament of the breed and are carried away by the cuteness. A soft hearted or 'weak' owner may end up with a killer.
    If you want fluffy lion dogs with almost no effort get a Keeshond.

    The most laid back dog I have ever had

  96. D Reconic says:

    It sounds like a chow chow is a close relative to pekingese. But my pekingese was abused as a puppy and barks at every stranger and will try to attack them if they are in/near our home. Very smart dog, knows a variety of tricks and knows more than what we think they know. So what Im getting at is if I were to get a chow chow should I expect it to act like a pekingese or a labrador ..?

  97. Just Sayin' says:

    chowchow was also created for war during the ancient times of china. thats why they can be more aggressive sometimes.
