Ditto for Australia, you may see crossbred Chi's in shelters and any number of other "Heinz 57 Varieties" as they're called here, but rarely purebred anything - that goes for most breeds, except for the breeds most consider aggro, they get a few of them - they get snapped up by the tough 'ol bogans pretty darn quick though.
