All dogs are cuddly and adorable but Chow Chows look exactly like cuddly teddy bears. Known in Chinese as the "puffy lion dog", Chow Chows are as fluffy as their name suggests.
They are thought to have originated over 2,000 years and were used as both guard dogs and sled dogs. Not only that, but they even went to war!
