The Chow originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. He is believe to be
decended from the Samoyed and the Tibetan Mastiff. AKC recognized the breed in 1903. One notable
characheristic of the breed is they are required to have a black tongue -
this does not mean, however, that all dogs who have black on their tongues
are related to the chow.
