Is the Chow Chow / Basenji 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 unlikely pairing between a Chow Chow and a Basenji isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.

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 Chow Chow or the Basenji traits dominate.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, any Chow Chow mix can potentially represent a challenge to inexperienced or unconfident dog owners. You must be able to be a consistent alpha to get the best out of this animal. If this dog gets some of the Basenji's ability to leap, you may have trouble keeping it confined to your own property, so it's vital that you socialize it so it doesn't become timid or aggressive with strangers.
