It seems to evolve into something like Fire+Ice

I love this! It's a really nice idea to use a chow-chow—I think it fits very well (the black tongue even makes me think of its tongue being charred, heh) in addition to being a nice break from all the lupine dog starters, and it's got a lot of potential for interesting evolutions. Plus, it's very cute!

Thanks! The blackened "charred" tongue was one of the reasons I chose a chow-chow for my starter! I honestley got a little bored of lupine starters, and thtought I'd shake it up! Heck, his final evolution is Fire/Ice Type!

Oh, well then I'm definitely looking forward to it! I'm kind of surprised that not many people try to find interesting uses for fire/ice; yeah, it's a tough type combo to make sense of, but it can be done and not enough people attempt it, imo.

I find that combining the icy and burning parts of a fakemon is difficult, so I chose a fire starter who can survive and orginated in Tibet! Because of the cold there, it would only make sense for Fire/Ice!

the fire starters signature move is "Giga crash (Fighting)"

It won't be Fire/Fighting. That is far too overdone.
