Chow chow Description
  The Chow Chow has two most distinctive features - its blue-black tongue and its almost straight hind legs, which makes it walk rather stilted. It has a dense, furry coat that is profused and comes in two varieties - smooth coat and rough coat. Its ears are small and rounded and it has a huge ruff behind the head, which gives it an appearance of a lion. It has a broad head and a flat skull. Its muzzle is broad near the eyes and narrows toward its black nose without becoming pointed. Its chest is deep and broad and the kidney area is strong and short. Thickly covered with hair, the tail is carried over its back.
