What others have said - she has a very straight rear. The Chows and Shar Pei standards call for straight rear angulation.






Even historical photos of Chows show this trait:



Both show type and the more traditional "bone mouth" Shar pei have straight rears:








I definitely see a lot of mixes of those two breeds with straighter than average rears too.

Here's some further info on structure, rear angulation, etc:

That first Pei picture you posted actually has decent angulation!

I don't think any of the dogs pictured have much rear angulation? Are you talking about the one I took down because it was huge? That dog is pretty straight too:

I think it's straight, but the muscle is throwing off the appearance of angulation. That and the other rear leg positioned behind it as well.

Yep, they do. Not quite as smooth as that Chow anymore, but one of our members here has a really pretty smooth Chow named Goose. It's still a pretty thick coat though. Not really 'smooth', more of a thick double coat. The dogs pictured above that photo are today's smooth Chows.

It's pretty straight I'd say.

All the Chows I posted are Smooth coats. Can't see angulation so well on the hairy ones. For contrast a rough:



The old picture was from a Retrieverman article that discusses the close relation of Chows and Shar Pei. I don't think you ever see Chows that smooth anymore.

I learned a lot from that site, it explains a lot of details. Pitties, but it applies to other breeds too.
