Chen Chu Chows
came to be because of my love for the breed and having owned a chow as a
child. After much prodding, in 1979 my husband and I decided to purchase
a chow for the family. In the search we somehow found our way into
showing and breeding. Spending much time learning and reading about this
wonderful breed. Deciding on the bloodlines and what our goals were to
Our First litter was whelped in 1983. We have bred/owned over 20 chow champions, all on a limited in-house breeding program. Producing the
First US Female Smooth Champion in the History of the Breed, Ch. Chen
Chu Black Ice, Gidget became the First Female Smooth Champion... First
Black Smooth Champion and the First Smooth Female to go Best of Breed
and Group with a Group Three placement all before she finished in 10
shows. Due to an injury her show career came to an end much to soon.
Other highlights as a breeder has been
Ch. Tamarin Velvet Talisman another smooth who was #6 Top Ten Chow
(Total Dogs Defeated) 1994. As his breeders we are very proud of him and
his owner Pru Baxter.
In 1999, we campaigned our boy Ch. Chen Chu Kickin It Up.....and Kickin It Up he
multiple Best Of Breeds and Group Placements in limited showing. We are
very proud of him and the dogs that came before him.
Our emphases is on
breeding a consistent quality and breed type in all dogs both Show and
Pet. Breeding for a sound mind, body, correct movement, who is
intelligent, alert, balanced and active with temperament of the upper
most importance to us.
