Chow Chow Information
Ever wonder what those dogs that look like a little lion are called? That’s a Chow Chow, an ancient dog dating back more than 2,000 years. His personality is similar to a cat’s: independent, a little stubborn and not all that interested in trying to please. His deep-set eyes and turned up nose add to the scowling look. The breed is well-behaved and rarely destructive, however.
Serious and slightly aloof, the Chow Chow does not need as much exercise as other breeds. Be sure to groom his fur regularly to show off his glorious coat, which can be cream, red, black, blue or cinnamon. Interestingly, the Chow Chow is one of two dogs (the other being the Chinese Shar-Pei) that has a blue tongue.
