Chow Chows are a spitz-type dog breed originating in northern China.
They are known for their small and sturdy build, and dense double coat which is particularly thick around the neck.
The breed is often described as being cat-like in personality and can be discerning to strangers and at times fiercely protective of its owners and property.
