Rottweiler Chow mixes can all look different as it depends on the percentage of each breed that the dog has. Some may look more Rottweiler shaped with the heavy set features and colourings. While others may look and have the colourings of a Rottweiler yet have longer fur like that of a Chow. Also the tongue is a good place to look as Rottweiler Chow mixes often have a pink tongue with purple spots on it.

Below is a link to google images of different Rottweiler Chow mixes:

www.google.co.uk/search?q=Rottweiler+And+Chow+Mix&hl=en&

The Rottweiler is a medium to large size breed of domestic dog that originated in Rottweil, Germany. The dogs were known as "Rottweil butchers' dogs” because they were used to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat and other products to market. Some records indicate that earlier Rottweilers may have also been used for hunting, although the modern Rottweiler has a relatively low hunting instinct.

The Rottweiler was employed in its traditional roles until the mid-19th century when railroads replaced droving for getting livestock to market. While still used in herding, Rottweilers are now also used in search and rescue, as guide dogs for the blind, as guard or police dogs, and in other roles.

While a Chow is a sturdily built dog, square in profile, with a broad skull and small, triangular, erect ears, rounded at the tips. The breed has a very dense double coat that can be either smooth or rough. The fur is particularly thick around the neck, giving the distinctive ruff or mane appearance. The coat may be one of five colors including red, black, blue, cinnamon/fawn, and cream.

The eyes should be deep set and almond in shape. Chows are distinguished by their unusual blue-black/purple tongue and very straight hind legs, resulting in a rather stilted gait. The bluish color extends to the chow's lips; the chow is the only dog breed with this distinctive bluish appearance in its lips and oral cavity other dogs have black or a piebald pattern skin in their mouths. One other distinctive feature is the curly tail. It has thick hair that lies curled on its back. The nose should be black. The blue-black/purple tongue gene appears to be dominant, as almost all mixed breed dogs that come from a chow retain the tongue color.

I have a rott/chow mix that is 3 1/2 years old. I've had him since he was 7 weeks old. He weighs about 90lbs. He actually looks like the halves of 2 dogs put together, a rottie in the front and a chow in the back. He has the large head of a rottie and broad shoulders and in the back has the straight legs and curly tail of a chow. He has a spotted tongue and got the cinnamon coloring of his paternal grandmother (chow). His face has the reverse coloring of a rottie, he is brownish with black spots above his eys and his muzzle is black. He also looks like he is wearing black eyeliner and has little triangular ears that are very soft. He is very friendly and loving with people he knows, but he barks at strangers as they walk past the house. He definately has a scary bark and snarl when he wants to. He's very stubborn, but eventually gives in to me. It took quite awhile for me to get him to understand that I'm the boss, not him (even though he still believes in the ranking of our family that he comes before my husband lol). He is bossy toward our other dog. If I scold the other dog for doing something, he thinks he needs to be the one to make him listen. For example, if the other dog jumps up and I tell him to get down, the rott/chow will grab the other dog by the collar and pull him down. Another thing about him is that he is EXTREMELY intelligent, he understands everything to say to him and learned tricks very quickly. His only problem is that he is stubborn and at times refuses to listen, even though he knows what you are telling him to do. Overall he is a great dog and I wouldn't trade him for any other dog in the world!

I recently discovered that's what I have! I have been trying to guess for four months. Here he is--with chow chow traits of willfulness, aloofness at times--but very smart and trainable. He IS sweet--but not in a cocker spaniel sort of way if you know what I mean. How are you doing with training of yours? I am surprised how long mine is biting into his later adolescence. I REALLY want this to stop soon and I have tried everything. I don't have a dominant personality and fear I will never be completely in control.

My Rotten Chow, as I call him, looked a lot like this puppy when I got him except my Teds hair is shorter.  He also has a pink tongue with purple spots on it.  He is so love-able, but he has the chow teeth and he loves to bite things, he chews on everything and it has been quite a ride teaching him not to bite certain things.  I wouldn't trade him for any other dog, a wonderful mix:)

I have a rott-chow mix. She's about the size of a chow but looks like a rottweiler as far as markings go. She has a curled tail and pointy ears and a medium length coat. Zoe weighs about 50-60 pounds.

It just dawned on me this is what I have. My puppy was billed as a "lab mix" at the Humane Society. None such! No goofy-innocent-ball and water obsessed puppy is he. He IS: Willful, inconsistently good, very smart (almost scary smart), a little edgy and aloof at times though he is willing to cuddle sometimes. He started developing spots on his tongue and his tail started to fill out a lot (his coat is SOOO soft--I thought he was golden retriever)...and the tail is now starting to curl. I typed Rottie Chow Chow into Google, and VOILA, there is a picture of a dog that, placed next to mine, would be confused as a twin. I am a little terrified now. I am not a dominant personality--not even assertive, unfortunately--and he is starting to walk on me. He's genuinely sweet BUT when he wants something, nothing stands in his way. He's 45 lbs at about 7 months. Good luck with yours! Share any training that has worked! It scares me more than a little to see posts about chows attacking their own owners later in life--eek. Gilbert, my dog, does get this look in his eye on walks sometimes and then just launch into me--no serious biting but definitely challenging my authority.

I had a rot/chow mix... Mine didn't bark or chew or anything. He passed away about 2 1/2 years ago. He was 16 when he died. Most dogs only last to 11 but special ones break the life span.  Cutest things. I know have a 3 1/2 year old male Yorki. My chow rot was a male to he scared people cause he looks dangerous but he's an angel. His name was Bearly cause he looked like a bear.... My Yorki is Gizie.... Hope everything and everyone answers ur question! <3 xD :(

I have a Rottweiler Chow mix. She's 12 years old now, but when she was a puppy I found a book called The Mixed Breed by Jeannette Stark. There are a bunch of stories about different mixed breed dogs and I found a story about a dog named Teddy who looks almost identical to my dog. My dog has brindle colored fur, spots on her tongue, and a small amount of wrinkles around the face. She's about average size for a large dog, has shorter ears that have velvety fur on them, and has distinctive black "eyeliner" marks around her eyes. I don't know if a lot of this mix look like her, but I know at least one other does so maybe its a common result for the breed pairing.

I have a rott chow mix who is 4 years. I got him when he was 8 weeks. When he was a baby he had a little fluffy puppy hair with a purple tongue. A chow breeder at the pet store recognized him as a chow mix (before she saw his tongue). Now he has a solid cinnamon color thin coat but you can pull his loose skin over his eyes. He was very alpha oriented even at 8 weeks and took a lot of firm love with respect to get him to acknowledge me as alpha. There are certain rare occasions even now when he gets a fork etc. That I use the broom to get it from him or divert him with a treat to take it away. I do not take chances of him winning anything. Never get into a fight with a dog...you cannot win. Better to avoid the fight and let him think he cannot win.
Establish your dominance early. I was going to add his picture but there is no way to on this site. I have four dogs and he is the quickest to obey and he is also my cuddle-bug and my grand-kids favorite. You have chosen a wonderful breed mix...just be boss.

My Chow-weiler mix has two "Looks".  In the winter, I let his hair grow into the luxuriant coat typical of a chow dog.   He is black with a rottweiler brown coloration on his feet and fanny.   His face & eyes are that of a chow but he has a slightly longer nose.   He definitely has a rottweiler snarl, when needed.

In the summer time, I clip his fur (I live in a hot climate) and he looks like a big rottie.

Great dog, gentle amiable personality.  Also, great for the "fear factor" keeping ppl out of my yard.  At the dog park, I take him & my small dogs into the small dog park - everyone loves him and never a problem.

It is hard to tell. With mixed breeds, you can get 99% of one breed and 1% of the other. The best way to tell is to get a lab test. The tests are NOT inhumane. Its just simple blood work.
