Chow-chow is an ancient breed that originated from Mongolia and China. They were favored by the nobles but were also hunted and considered exotic for their coat and meat.
Chow-chows are cat-like dogs; both in physical appearance and personality. Rough and thick-coated chows have a mane resembling a lion. Although they look fluffy, they are not the cuddle type of toy dog. They are aloof, confident, and independent.
They are not sociable but very loyal to their owners. They are not aggressive but are very possessive and suspicious of the stranger, which makes them a fitting watchdog. They are best with people who can take the time to care for their glorified coat and be satisfied with a reserved companion.
