What do chow dogs look like?
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.
