I have received and am publishing this interesting article from Decaninos.
Quite a broad and varied range of dog breeds have come to us from China, some of which are very well-known and others not so much. If you have one or are interested in these marvelous Chinese dog breeds, below, I’m going to explain their origins and most common features.
We have grouped them by size, as that is one of the features that people keep in mind the most when choosing which breed to take home:
Large (weighing more than 18 kg, and which can even reach 100):
- Tibetan Mastiff
Medium (weighing more than 8 kg and up to 30):
- Chow Chow
- Tibetan Terrier
Small (maximum weight of between 8 and 9 kg):
- Lhasa Apso
- Chinese Crested Dog
- Shih Tzu
