Default Are these purebred chows?

It's time for the the latest addition of "is this puppy at my shelter a purebred Asian breed?"

First time it was an Akita, then it was a Shar Pei, and now it's two what I THINK are chow pups. It would be nice to get them into rescues or breed savvy homes, since some people who come to the shelter to adopt a cute little fluffy puppy might not be up for a chow!

This is the girl:







And this is the boy:







The girl is a bit shy, but they're both very sweet and friendly.

They look purebred to me. The boy has an "ee" red coat with blue pigment (both very common in chows) which is causing his eyes to be hazel. The girl is also an "ee" red but with black pigment her nose however has poor pigmentation but that is also a common fault.

Oh Lordy the cute! They look very 'chowy' to me, but I don't really know much about the breed


That's all

Chows for sure. They look very, very typical of pet bred Chows. They also look like they have probably been shaved in the past.

My guess is that it's just their puppy coats and that they haven't been shaved. Looks pretty typical of a chow puppy coat to me.
