Chinese dogs look less inbred than American ones, and most of them are working dogs. They sleep in front of buildings and seem to be minding their own business, but stop or come too close and they'll start barking at you. Outside of tourist cities they also roam the streets, generally being given the right of way by drivers.
The wandering dogs are the friendly ones, and if you let them sniff you they'll be your friends. The Chinese seemed rather shocked that I let a dog lick me, and immediately gave me a napkin to wipe my hand with. The dogs probably eat a lot of garbage, now that I think about it.
