Chow Chow Styles

Post by cyberfunk » Sun Oct 06, 2013 10:35 pm

Hi There,

My Wife and I are looking to introduce a Chow Chow puppy into our lives and have (well though we had) done a lot of research to identify what type of Chow we would like, preferring what we understand to be the "European" style Chow, with the longer nose, open face and slender body.

We have spoken to a number of breeders and they tend to talk about breeding the American Style (Closed face, Short nose, Stocky body) or European style, but were recently talking to one who mentioned an "Old English Style" Chow and cannot find any visual representation of what this style of Chow actually looks like.

If anyone could please provide some insight and links to what this style of Chow looks like and the difference to what we understand to be "American" and "European" styles, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone was able to refer to this style of Chow on http://www.chowswho.com/ so we can look at the lineage over time it would also be greatly appreciated.

Many thank in advance,

Cyber
