Chow Chow Mix: What Are The Hybrids For This Classic Breed?
The Chow Chow breed originated from China and was first introduced into the United States in 1876. Since then it has become one of the most popular dog breeds in America. There are many different types of chows, but they all share certain characteristics such as being small dogs with short legs, long bodies and round heads. They have large, dark eyes, a wide mouth and sharp teeth. These traits make them very good guard dogs.
There are several different varieties of chows available today. Some are purebred while others are mixes between two or more breeds. A hybrid is when two unrelated animals (such as a cat and a dog) mate to produce offspring that do not belong to either parent’s species.
Chows can be any color, but most come in black, tan or white colors. The Chow Chow is considered to be one of the best performing breeds. They have been used for police work, search and rescue, tracking and even fighting.
It is important to note that there are no guarantees that these dogs will grow up to be well behaved pets. If you choose to buy a chow chow puppy, you should expect some behavioral issues later in life if not trained properly. You should never allow these dogs to be overly aggressive towards humans or other pets.
Now that you know a little bit about the chow chow breed, you probably want to find out more about their hybrid breeds. If you are looking for a pet that will not shed, gets along well with children and is easy to train, then a mixed breed between a Pekingese and a Chow is just what you need.
The Pekinese is a toy breed that originated in China. They have short legs, a long body, large dark eyes and a face that looks like it is frowning all the time. In 1924, the Pekingese became popular after being featured in several movies.
Today, it is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. These dogs are well known for their luxurious coats and serious demeanor.
The Pekinese is a very loyal breed that prefers to stick close to its owner at all times and does not do well if left alone for long periods of time. It also does not get along well with other pets or children. If you want a dog that is easy to train and loves everyone, this is not the breed for you.
A Peke-Chow mix is often affectionate to those that care for it, but may be stand-offish to strangers. It has the loyalty and obedience of the Pekinese and the protective nature of the Chow Chow. These dogs have a quick wit and are very playful.
They also tend to be more extroverted than their parents. Peke-Chows do not shed much and are good with children, but should never be left alone with them as they can be a bit too playful at times.
Even though the Peke-Chow has many positive points, it still inherits some of the negative traits of its parents. The Peke-Chow can be stubborn and is known to snap at people if they invade its personal space. It also tends to drool and has bad breath.
These dogs are not recommended for first time owners.
Whether you like small, sturdy dogs or prefer something larger, there is a chow chow hybrid out there that will fit your personality and lifestyle. Before you choose a specific breed, do some research on it so you can decide if it is right for you. Once you have found the right dog for you, you will have a loyal companion for years to come.
