I have to start this off by saying that I love merle coats on dogs, in fact, my service dog is a female merle Great Dane and she is beautiful.

Merle is a coat color that is standard and common for some dog breeds, however not all dog breeds have a standard merle color.

‘Oreo Cloud’ is a Chow Chow puppy that was born with a merle coat, and this is not a standard Chow Chow coat color so it’s always a rare surprise when you see one.

The standard coat colors for a Chow Chow are red, black, blue, cinnamon, or cream, and they can have rough or smooth coats.

I’m not quite sure just how old he is right now, it looks like they’ve taken a break from social media, but I do know that he is still young and he is training to be a therapy dog.

Therapy dogs are dogs that are used in facilities like schools or hospitals and just help to bring a feeling of calm and comfort to those that are there, however they are very different than service dogs.

His name is actually Chief, although ‘Oreo Cloud’ has become his nickname due to his gorgeous merle coat that his owner, Sara Hamilton, said looks like an Oreo McFlurry dessert.

Even though Chief comes from several generations of purebred Chow Chows, it’s likely that a genetic defect from the past made its way through, or another breed jumped in the lineage way back when.

Chief lives in California and has become quite the celebrity on social media, just check out his Instagram account, @theoreocloud.
