Chow Chow dogs are a Chinese Arctic Hauling(Sled) dog like a

Husky, they also look a bit like a bear and a lion and are

absolutely gorgeous! In Northern China and Mongolia they are called

"Songshi Quan" which means "Puffy Lion Dog"

you should google image search "Chow Chow" and "Songshi Quan" A

COMMON MISCONCEPTION is that they have very bad temperaments. THIS

IS NOT TRUE! I currently own 2 purebred Chow Chows, and my family

bred them growing up. I have NEVER encountered a mean Chow, not a

stranger's, not any that I or my parents owned... and my parents

rescued a 3 year old male that was not neutered from an abusive

home. They are a stubborn breed, though. If you want a dog that

will ALWAYS listen to commands this isn't it, even if they are well

trained, and they are given a command they TECHNICALLY will obey

it. I.E. If you tell it to 'come' it may walk over to you then

immediately turn and walk away.
