It is a relatively new breed that was developed by crossbreeding the Chow Chow, Wolfspitz and Samoyed. Through recurrent and severe selections, today's specimens were obtained, which are very appreciated in Europe and in the USA.
It is a medium-sized dog, long rather than tall, with a brawny body. The head is strong and conical, similar to a wolf's, with a flat skull and a frontal wrinkle. It has a conical muzzle and strong jaws. The eyes are medium-sized, slanting and dark. The ears are medium-sized, pointed, triangular, round-ended and erect. The tail is thick, bushy and carried on the back. The fur is double-layered, with a thick, short, fluffy inner layer and outer layer that has medium-length, straight hair that gives it a shaggy look. The hair is short on the muzzle, face and front side of the legs and long on the rest of the body. It can have any colour except white and dark red.
It is an intelligent, quiet, well-balanced, alert, pretty friendly and obedient dog that doesn't bark too much, but sometimes can have an independent thinking. It is affectionate and devoted to its family, it gets along with children, but it is careful and reserved with strangers. Generally it doesn't have problems with other dogs or other household animals, especially if it was socialized with them from an early age.
Its fur must be brushed and groomed more often during the shedding period. Otherwise it should be combed only when needed. The coat's inner layer could be affected if it is combed too often.
It is a dog resistant to bad weather which likes to live outdoors with a loving master (it doesn't like to spend too much time alone) but with experience in raising dogs. It can also adapt to apartment life, only if it can get one hour of daily exercise, to run and play. It needs socialization and training.
It is a dog relatively easy to train because it is intelligent and obedient. With a firm (it can sometimes be stubborn), consistent, well-balanced training, good results can be obtained. It must be socialized from an early age with other dogs, other animals and with children.
It is a good watchdog and a devoted companion.
