Is the Chow Chow / Australian Cattle Dog Mix right for you?

Species group:

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 Chow / Australian Cattle Dog Mix is a cross between a pure Chow Chow and a pure Australian Cattle Dog, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue-- possibly because it can be a little overwhelming for the average dog owner. If possible, get to know the animal in question before you decide to take it home.

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 Heeler or the Chow-Chow traits dominate. Many individuals do look very fluffy, but others resemble the Heeler side of the family tree.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, you should expect the Chow Chow / Australian Cattle Dog Mix to represent a genuine challenge. The Heeler is sensitive, highly intelligent, and loves having an important job to do outdoors. The Chow-Chow was also bred to do hard work outdoors, but it seems to hold itself a little more apart and sometimes it might be stubborn if it feels you aren't a true alpha. It's not necessarily easy to figure out what tactics to use to get the best out of the mix. Be an observant dog owner who can establish your leadership with clarity, kindness, and consistency. A bored Chow Chow / Australian Cattle Dog Mix will find a way to cause problems.
