Chongqing Dog
Chongqing dogs originated in the eastern region of Chongqing and Sichuan. This is a mountainous region, and relatively isolated from the outside world. Chongqing dogs are the result of long-term evolution and humans have seldom interfered with the natural reproduction of these dogs. They gradually formed unusual temperaments and personality characteristics unique to the breed. These dogs are very rare and most people outside of this region have never seen nor heard of a Chongqing Dog. Many of the locals are not even aware of their existence.
