Is the Collie (Smooth) / Chow Chow Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Smooth Collie / Chow Chow Mix

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 / Smooth Collie mix is a cross between a pure Smooth Collie and a pure Chow-Chow, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the mix is not common, you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue. Considering the very different personalities of the parent breeds, you would be wise to have previous experience with training and socializing large dogs, and you should know a bit about the special personality challenges offered by each breed. This mix is a poor choice for people who lack time, space, and dog smarts.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance depending on which breed's traits dominate, this mix can resemble a fluffier and/or more powerful than usual Smooth Collie.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, owners of the Collie (Smooth) / Chow Chow Mix need to be prepared for almost anything. Any Chow-Chow mix is a dog that needs to be properly socialized to avoid becoming overly aggressive, especially with strangers but potentially with children. Respect this mix as an individual, and tailor the training to the personality that emerges rather than making assumptions.
