Large White Fluffy Dog Breeds

Chow Chow Dog

A typical Spitz with the short back, cobby build, pointed and erect ears, and curled tail, it was bred for centuries for its fur and flesh and is still so bred in Mongolia. The breed has a peculiar bluish-black tongue. It was first mentioned in England in 1789. This attractive breed is now popular in England and the U.S.A. Being aloof and suspicious it is an excellent guard, although devoted to its owners.

This ancient Chinese breed has served a variety of purposes since its development many thousands of years ago. Its history is said to date back to the eleventh century BC, and in these early years, Chow Chows were kept for hunting purposes.

One Chinese emperor is said to have maintained a kennel of 5,000 of these dogs, cared for by 10,000 people! Subsequently, the breed was kept as a source of food, with young dogs being reared solely for this purpose on a diet comprised mainly of grain. The Chow Chow has also been used as a means of transporting goods and pulling sledges, and its fur has been made into clothing.

Chow Chows were first seen in Britain during the latter part of the eighteenth century and were originally exhibited as wild dogs. They later gained more widespread acceptability when kept by Queen Victoria. Unfortunately, in spite of their close association with people, chow chows are not always the best-tempered of dogs. They can also be very difficult to train, compared with other breeds. Yet the Chow Chow often develops into a loyal companion, preferring to live with an individual person rather than as a family dog.

A good brushing is required to keep its coat in good condition, especially in the case of a long-coated dog. Regular exercise, preferably away from other dogs, is essential as well. As show dogs, Chow Chows often reign supreme, and a member of this breed holds the record out of all breeds for the greatest number of Challenge Certificates ever won.

  • Height 18 in min (45.5 cm)
  • Weight 55-60 lb (25-27.2 kg)
  • Coat type/colour . Coat abundant, dense and with a stand-off ruff, profuse mane and thick undercoat. A smooth-coated variety is seen occasionally. Colour red, black, blue, fawn, cream or white. Head has a flat, broad skull; ears small, erect; body compact; legs straight; tail well plumed and carried over the back.

Samoyed Dog

One of the most beautiful members of the Spitz family, the Samoyed is named after the nomadic tribe of Samoyeds, or Samoyedes, usually found at the head of the Yenisei, though the dogs are common to the Pechora district and even further afield.

The general title of Laiki is given to some half-dozen of these Northern breeds, which are used for rounding up reindeer, guarding the herds, and sometimes as sled dogs. The earliest importation of any note was a dog brought by Mr. Kilburn Scott in 1889, which was followed by others within a few years. The Samoyed Club was founded in 1909, and from its institution until today the breed has forged ahead.

  • Height 20-22 in (50.5-56 cm)
  • Weight about 45-55 lb (20.4-24.9 kg)
  • Coat type/colour Coat harsh, medium to long, with a stand-off ruff, and thick soft undercoat. Colour white, white-and-biscuit and cream.

Spaniel (Clumber) Dog

The largest of the English sporting Spaniels, and named after Clumber Park, where it was developed about 1770. Of French origin the breed’s antecedents are mysterious; the ‘Alpine spaniel’ has been a suggested relation but little is known of these dogs.

Although not the least popular of the Spaniel family, the Clumber spaniel is by no means well known, despite the great efforts of King George V to resuscitate the breed. Many of the best dogs were produced in the Sandringham kennels. The stocky Clumber is the heaviest of all the spaniels, with dogs of this breed weighing up to 70 lb (32 kg).

Although not ranking as one of the most common spaniels, the Clumber is still highly valued as a sporting companion. It was developed for its scenting skills but also probes versatile enough to make a good retriever as well.

Clumber Spaniels may not be as agile as some breeds, but there is no doubting their stamina. This is not a suitable companion in an urban environment, however, preferring more spacious surroundings where it can have plenty of exercises.

The coat of this breed is somewhat less profuse than in other spaniels and mud will brush out easily once it has dried. In terms of coloration, Clumber Spaniels are invariably lemon and white or orange and white, with paler markings generally being preferred.

Their feet are covered with dense hair, and, especially after exercise in the summer months, you must check for grass seeds that may have become tangled up here. These could otherwise penetrate into the feet and track up the leg, causing a painful injury.

  • Height 16-18 in (40.6-45.5 kg)
  • Weight 55-70 lb (25-31.8 kg)
  • Coat type/color Coat abundant, close, silky, and straight; legs well feathered. Colour white with lemon (or orange) markings on ears, head, or muzzle; body markings are undesirable. Head large and round; ears, vine-leaf shaped, hang slightly forward; body long and heavy and near the ground; tail short, well feathered.

Pyrenean Mountain Dog

Better known in North America simply as the Great Pyrenees, these large shepherd dogs were bred from mastiff stock and served to protect sheep from wolves, being equipped with fearsome spiked collars to defend themselves. Later they were used to smuggle contraband across the steep mountain paths that separated France and Spain, being fitted with special satchels for this purpose.

The breed had declined sharply by the turn of the century and could have died out, but then a breeding program was launched in which emphasis was placed on producing dogs that were good-natured, lacking the traditional aggressive traits. This has been successfully achieved, although these dogs still show a marked reluctance to accept strangers and will prove alert guard dogs.

In a show ring, these predominantly white dogs are an impressive sight. They were first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1933, before being accepted by the British organization 11 years later. The double dewclaws on the hind feet are deemed a breed characteristic and should never be removed in show dogs.

Here is one of the most magnificent of dogs, a near and distinguished relative of the Kuvasz and Maremma. The Pyrenean was used in medieval times to protect flocks from bears and wolves, as a dog of war (armed with spiked iron collars), and for guard work; it still serves as a guide and pack dog today. The breed was introduced in Great Britain by lady Sybil Grant about 50 years ago, and in the U.S.A. in 1933, since when it has been widely bred. Madame Trois-Fontaines’ introduction of first-class stock to this country has resulted in the breed becoming well established and good dogs being bred here.

  • Height 28 in + (71 cm)
  • Weight 100-1125 lb
  • Coat type/color Coat very resistant to weather; thick outer coat of coarse hair and undercoat of finer hair. Colour all-white or principally white with markings of badger, grey or tan.

Medium White Fluffy Dog Breeds

Eskimo Dog

The true Husky is the sledge dog bred in West Greenland and Labrador, and should not be confused with other Eskimo varieties. These dogs have outstanding powers of energy and even in this mechanized age, there are many forms of sledge dogs working in snowbound areas where a vehicle cannot penetrate.

Few dogs have more stamina than the Siberian Husky, which was developed as a sleigh dog by the Chukchi tribe who lived in northeast Asia. From here, some of these dogs were taken to Alaska just after the turn of the present century, where they won the grueling 400-mile (644 km) All Alaska Sweepstake Race. The popularity of these dogs spread, helped by their appealing temperament.

In addition to being kept just as active companions or show dogs, however, they have also been used in recent years to develop the sport of sled racing. This is now a popular pursuit among owners of these Huskies, both in the United States and in parts of Europe, including Britain.

There are no restrictions on the coloration of the Siberian Husky, and some individuals are most attractively marked. They are also known under the alternative name of Arctic Husky.
When allowed to become domesticated Huskies make excellent companions and are very good-natured although inclined to be aloof and suspicious with strangers. Undoubtedly very handsome dogs attract attention whenever they appear at shows.

  • Height 21-23½ in (53.5-59.5 cm)
  • Weight 45-60 lb (20.4-27.2 kg)
  • Coat type/colour The Husky has a long harsh outer coat with a dense woolly undercoat. The colours are various and often include white on neck, chest and legs. Ears pricked and tail carried over the back.

Poodle (Standard) Dog

France, Germany and Russia have all claimed the Poodle. Poodles were certainly known in Italy in the 16th century and Holland in the 17th century; they did not arrive in this country until considerably later. On the Continent the Poodle was frequently used as a water spaniel, hence its name which derives from the German ‘puddeln’, to splash in the water.

Recently the larger and original members of this intelligent family have been less favored than their smaller parvenu brethren but there are signs that their popularity is increasing.

  • Height 15 in and over (38 cm)
  • Coat type/colour the profuse, offstanding coat is of hard texture and is usually clipped in the traditional ‘lion’ style. Colour black, white, brown, blue or any solid colour.

Small White Fluffy Dog Breeds

West Highland White Terrier Dog

This breed was originally known as the Poltalloch Terrier, being named after the area where it was first bred, in Argyllshire, Scotland, and is the only all-white Scottish breed that is a native of Argyll Its development here occurred by chance when a dark-colored terrier owned by one Colonel Malcolm was accidentally shot and killed by its owner in 1860. He then decided to breed only white terriers, and so the Westie came into existence, although, prior to this, odd white terriers had been recorded.

As with other similar breeds from this region, the West Highland White Terrier was used to hunt vermin. Its rough, wiry coat reflects its hard ancestry, with mud soon falling off the hairs once they are dry. Regular grooming is essential, however, to keep these dogs looking their best, and stripping about twice a year on average will be required.

In terms of temperament, West Highland Whites are typically lively, jaunty terriers. They prove alert guards at home, and need firm training from an early age, because, in spite of their small size, they can have rather dominant natures.

Westies enjoy a good run off the leash, especially if you have a ball for them to chase. It may be advisable to avoid areas where a number of other dogs are also being exercised, however, as these terriers are likely to prove rather possessive, and will not appreciate the involvement of others in their game.

  • Height 11 in (28 cm)
  • Weight 15-22 lb (6.8-9.9 kg)
  • Coat type/colour Coat about 2 in. long, rough and free from curl, with a short, soft and close undercoat. Colour white. Ears small, triangular and erect or semi-erect. Body well muscled with a relatively strong thick tail.

Bichon Frise Dog

The cuddly Bichon Frisé is believed to have originated in Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa. Its ancestors were brought to Europe over 400 years ago and became especially popular among members of the Spanish and French aristocracy. Support for the breed declined during the nineteenth century, however, and it became associated with organ-grinders, who relied on its attractive appearance to induce generous support from onlookers.

In the circus ring, its intelligence endeared it to another audience, but it was to be the First World War that began the welcome rise in popularity of these dogs. Soldiers returning home with the Bichons meant that attention became focused on the breed in Britain. A standard was first established in France in 1933, and the breed was exported to the United States by Monsieur Picault and his wife in 1956.

The coat color of the Bichon Frisé is pure white, with the hairs being naturally curly. Unfortunately, to retain the immaculate appearance of these little dogs, a considerable amount of time must be devoted to grooming. Its white coat can become muddy on even a short walk. In such cases, it is best to let the mud dry and then brush it out of the coat, rather than washing the legs frequently. It is usual for puppies to have a less elaborate coat than older dogs. The Bichon Frisé should prove a relatively easy breed to train and makes a good companion.

  • Height up to 12 in (30.3 cm)
  • Weight 7-12 lb (3.2-5.4 kg)
  • Coat type/colour curly; pure white

Maltese Dog

Without a doubt, the Maltese is the oldest of the European Toy breeds, references having been made to this race by Aristotle and Strabo as coming from the island of Melita or Malta; later John Caius (1510-73) called the breed Melite.

As far back as 1763, when Sir Joshua Reynolds painted the then leading beauty, Nellie O’Brien, he showed her with a typical Maltese resting on her lap. It came to England about the time of Henry VIII but was most popular in the 1880s. During recent years this breed’s charming appearance and endearing characteristics have done much to increase its popularity.

  • Height not over 10 in (25 cm)
  • Coat type/colour Coat long and silky, quite straight and without any trace of woolliness. Colour white desirable but any self colour permitted. Head rather Terrier-like; ears dropped, well-feathered; eyes dark with black rims; body short and cobby tail curled over the back.

Pomeranian Dog

Being a miniature Spitz, the Pomeranian has a close affinity with the Arctic breeds, such as the Samoyed, Elkhound, and Finnish Spitz, the Central European Keeshond, and the Italian Volpino. When first introduced into Britain, it was almost like the German Wolfspitz of today, but gradually became smaller, until the old 20-30 lb (9.1-13.6 kg) dog disappeared and the modern Toy took its place.

In the early days the breed did not attract much attention, but with Queen Victoria patronizing the Fancy in 1888 and the formation of the first breed Club in 1891, the Pomeranian became popular. This is the smallest member of the group of spitz dogs, distinguished by their curly tails and upright ears. It appears to have been developed in the German province of Pomerania and attracted the attention of Queen Victoria.

She exhibited the breed at the Crufts Show of 1891, and this immediately led to an upsurge of interest in these dogs. Originally, Pomeranians were much larger than they are today, weighing as much as 30 lb (13.6 kg), but now members of this breed are lighter than 8 lb (3.6 kg). Nevertheless, they have retained the typical temperament of a spitz dog, being lively and loyal, and generally prove easy to train. Pomeranians are available in a wide range of colors and will live quite contentedly in a home where there is a small garden, with a park in the neighborhood for more prolonged periods of exercise.

Grooming is more time-consuming than with some breeds, as the Pomeranian has a dense undercoat and a long, straight outer coat. Trimming will also be necessary on occasion, to ensure that the coat remains immaculate. They are very alert dogs and will indicate the presence of strangers by yapping loudly.

Although this can be advantageous under certain circumstances, you may need to dissuade a Pomeranian from barking unnecessarily at the slightest sound. Nevertheless, as small guard dogs, they can give great reassurance, especially to elderly owners who are living on their own.

  • Height 12 in (30.5 cm)
  • Weight 4-4½ lb (1.8-2 kg)
  • Coat type/colour Coat long, straight, profuse and offstanding around the neck and shoulders. Colour red, orange, orange-sable, wolf-sable, beaver, blue, white, brown, chocolate and black.

Chihuahua (Long-coated) Dog

The long-haired Chihuahua is basically of the same make and shape as the smooth-haired variety and both types sometimes appear in the same litter. Since 1964 the two coat varieties have been divided into separate breeds in Great Britain. It is possible that the appearance of the long coat could be attributed to a very distant connection with the Papillon, to which breed there is a slight resemblance.

The size and colors of the long-coated variety are the same as for the smooth coats but the coat is longer and silky but quite flat on the body whilst the ears, forelegs, hind-quarters, and tail are slightly fringed. Although so small and dainty all Chihuahuas should have a brisk, forceful action.

Poodle (Miniature) Dog

Small Poodles, almost always white or particolored, can be seen in many 17th- and 18th- century paintings and were certainly fashionable pets at that period but it seems likely that these were the result of a cross with a Maltese or other small breed.

It was in the early years of the 20th century that systematic and ultimately successful attempts were made to breed small, typical pure-bred Poodles and in 1911 the English Kennel Club acknowledged them as a separate breed. It was not until the end of the Second World War that the breed really captured the fancy of dog lovers both here and in the U.S.A. – since when their popularity has been phenomenal.

  • Height under 15 in (38 cm)
  • In all other respects the Miniature Poodle is a replica of the Standard Poodle.
