Sedating a chow chow
The name Chow Chow was first assigned when the dogs were imported to England in the late 1700s, and means nicknack, probably because the breed was seen as an oriental curiosity (the name may have even been taken from the boxes in which the dogs were shipped).
In China, the breed is known as a Songshi Quan, meaning puffy lion dog.
The Chow Chow has a shoulder height of 46-56 cm (18-22 in) and weighs 20-32 kg (45-70 lbs). Chow Chows are sturdy and square from a profile view, with large, wide skulls, small triangular ears, and padded tufts of skin above the eyes.
