Can't give you an exact timeline, but good quality purebred Chow will develop the black tongue and mouth somewhere in the 6 - 8 month range. It could happen quicker, but you should be seeing it by then.

The mask will also turn. It will lighten to match her overall color.

Just noticed her age. She was released from the breeder way too early. Make sure you spend lots of time socializing her with other puppies so she can learn proper behavior.
