ABOUT THE BREED
A breed dating back to the Ming Dynasty (2000 years ago), the Chongqing Dog is a native Chinese breed, only to be found in the Sichuan region, in the city of Chonqing and its surroundings.
As rare as the Giant Panda, the Chongqing dog caught the interest of Chinese CKU officials, who begun a difficult journey for its recovery and rescue from extinction.
Slowly, the Chongqing dog made its way to Europe, where a small group of passionate breeders dedicated their efforts, time and money to ensure its survival and standardization. We are proud to be among them as major protagonists of the European Chongqing project.
The Chongqing Dog is a medium size dog, with sparse and short coat, coming in various tones of red and in black color.
A true guardian of the property, with strong hunting instincts, the Chongqing dog is affectionate to its family, loyal and dependable.
Its main ethnic characteristics are the bamboo shaped tail, strong and sturdy body, short muzzle (1:2 muzzle/skull proportion), round, piercing eyes, noticeable yet subtle wrinkles on forehead, erect, pointy ears and the famous bluish-black tongue.
