The Chow Chow breed is thought to be 2,000 years old — perhaps even older. It is believed that the Chow is either a descendant of a Spitz ancestor or a progenitor of some Spitz breeds, but the true origin of the dog may never be known. It was, however, common in China for many centuries and may have served as a hunting, pointing, or birding dog for the nobles. Wanna know more about this fascinating breed? Click the photo!
