Just wanted to mention that having purple/black on the tongue does not mean a dog is part Chow... I know a lot of people think this but it's not true! First of all there are other breeds which also have black tongues and mouths like Chinese Shar-Pei. Second of all ANY breed/mix can get a spot of dark pigment on their tongue, sometimes a tiny one like a mole and sometimes a large one like a patch. It's sort of like a birthmark on their tongue, and it's common in several breeds including Labs, Goldens, and German Shepherds but any dog can get it.
Also wanted to say the puppy's head/face in the first photos. sorta reminds me of a Corgi...but it's really really hard to tell the parentage of puppies!
