The coat is red, blue, fawn or black, with variations of light and dark in these colors and never with any markings of white. There are two varieties of the coat, the “rough” or long coated and the “smooth” or short coated. Both types of coat are dense and double.

The Chow Chow’s most distinguishing characteristic is the color of the tongue, which must always be blue-black in color. The pigment of the lips and gums must also be of the blue black color. The Chow Chow has deep wrinkles in his brow, making him appear to “frown” or “scowl” and this expression is another distinctive characteristic which is a part of the breed standard.

The tail curls over the top of the back. The shoulders and neck of the Chow should have a large ruff, in appearance this should be like the mane of a lion and the legs on both the front and the rear should be heavily “feathered” with longer hairs on the backs of the legs. Chows need to be regularly groomed, the coat will mat and become impossible to care for if left untended.

A person who is going to purchase a Chow needs to study this breed first and decide whether or not this is the breed for him. They are universally thought of as a “one man, one family” dog. They must be well socialized early in their lives, as they are “stand-offish” and do not fawn over people or demand attention.
