My chow mix (chow, rottweiller, and german shorthair pointer according to the DNA test!) is one of the smartest dogs I've ever known. He may be a black tongued devil but he super smart and tolerant too.
My American bulldog-boxer is one of the dumbest animals (maybe brain damage from his parvo fever??!!) but he is really sweet.....

Between rescuing and ACOing, I've seen a lot of chows, but I have never seen one ever be stupid. My own Kandahar is probably the most "goofy" chow I've ever known, but even he has a lot more going on behind the eyes than he ever goes public with. They're a sort of Wild West "strong and silent" type, really ... really, really quiet and self-contained, very "you do your thing, I'll do mine," until and if they decide they have to shoot. Then, God help you, because it's just BANG! straight from the hip, no warning given and no nonsense taken.

As I say, now THAT's a real dog. No muss, no fuss, just fluffy blue-tongued purposefulness.

My Weims have all been the smartest dogs I've ever known. Right now I'd give top dollar for some dumbing down serum for my current Weim. I have no place left in my entire home to keep dog food that I can keep him out of. You name it, gates, doors, locks, special bins, he can get through it all...but only sometimes when the moon and stars align.
My hounds weren't dumb, but they just never really cared to apply their brains to anything. They could easily live for years without ever thinking about anything.
The Labs aren't dumb either, but they don't try to manipulate the world to suit them like the Weims do. They think about whatever is in front of their face here and now.

and back to my pet peeve.....its GERMAN SHEPHERD! They are HERDING dogs not PARDING dogs!!
