Is the Chinese Shar-Pei / Chow Chow Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Chow Pei

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Chow-Pei is a cross between a pure Chinese Shar-Pei and a pure Chow-Chow, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This isn't a common designer mix, but you may occasionally encounter because it does produce an attractive animal. If at all possible, get to know the dog in question before you take it home, as there is a potential here for some behavior problems if this mix isn't socialized properly from an early age.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Shar-Pei or the Chow-Chow traits dominate. Many individuals look more huggable than they really are.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, you should expect the Chow-Pei to represent a genuine challenge. If you lack experience being a consistent and successful alpha to dominant breeds, you should pass on this mix.
