  • Not to be confused with "Sanshou," a beloved guinea pig and the Japanese word for "salt," "sanshu" is a breed of dog "developed in 1912 by crossing the ancient Japanese Aichi with the Chinese chow-chow.... Seen from the side, its body appears square... The sanshu is an excellent guard dog, but is able to combine this gift with that of being a companion dog..." (Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs, 1980)
