Default What breed of dog is this?

Hello everyone. I'm kind of new here and am hoping you can answer a question for me. I recently did a portrait of a gorgeous dog I met on the street in NYC. Only problem is, I have no idea what kind of dog it is... He had just been to the "salon" -- his head stayed very fluffy, but the rest of his fur was trimmed very tight. He is adorable and, since he's on my website, I need to know what breed he is...

I'd post the photo here but I don't see a way to upload it. It's posted here, instead. http://www.julieartworks.com/pet10max.html

Any insights into what kind of dog this is would be most appreciated!

Julie

I think it's a chow.I think he was clipped on the body and the head wasn't clipped...

I agree with everyone else, most definitely a Chow Chow.

Good call! And good observation on the tongue, Chell! I've always understood that the blue tongue is exclusive to the Chow.

Yes I agree. And I find that tongue color very interesting. I wonder why it is that color in Chows?

Hey you guys! Thanks so much for all the helpful replies!! I guess I came to the right place... : ) A chow it is! That's so funny that they call it a lion cut!

Anyway, thanks again!

Julie
