Chinese dog names can apply to breeds which were developed in China but they can just as easily be chosen for any pup simply because you like the title or sound of the title.

Shar Pei puppy waiting for Chinese dog names

Dogs from this large Asian country include the Chow Chow, Shar Pei, Pekinese, Foo, Manchurian hairless, Pug, Shih Tzu and others. Because this far away land is ancient, many of these breeds were treated as royalty as pets of the Emperors of dynasties from the distant past.

Many of the Chinese breeds from this country were working pups initially. For instance, the Shar Pei was bred to be a hunter of wild boar and a guard canine. Oddly enough, the Chow Chow was initially bred for their fur which made great clothing in the cold regions and their flesh which apparently was good to eat. (Rest assured, you’ll find no Chow Chow recipes on this site) Pekinese were bred as companions for royalty.
