Chow Chow (Smooth Coat)
Asian breeds are amongst our earliest Companion Dogs. This section includes two pages on Asian companion dogs. The first page covers the historically Tibetan breeds of the Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso and Tibetan Terrier and their connection. Note the other Asian breed, the Tibetan Spaniel, has been dealt with in our Toy Group where it is classified in Australia. The second page discusses the historically Chinese breeds, the Chow Chow and Shar Pei.
