    About Chow Chows

    This fashionable breed is more than 2,000 years old and stems from ancient China. The Chow has had several well-known owners throughout the years, including Elvis Presley and Martha Stewart. Timeless and loyal, the Chow Chow has several distinctive features: a blue-black tongue, a stiff-legged "stilted" way of moving, and a snobbish expression, along with the large ruff around the head and shoulders. This medium-sized lion lookalike enjoys exercise, thrives in cold weather, and also can do well living in an apartment or a home.

    This dignified and independent breed responds best to verbal rather than physical correction.

    Origin of the Chow Chow
