  • Overview

  • The Japanese Chin is truly man’s best friend! This small breed was created to be a companion to Japanese royalty thousands of years ago. Like many other Oriental breeds, the Japanese Chin has a broad head, wide-set eyes, a flattened face and a plumed tail. Charming, intelligent and sensitive, this dog is dignified but amusing, and thrives on attention from its owners. Japanese Chins are ideal for apartment life, as they are a relatively quiet, “cat-like” breed and their loyal, sweet nature makes them a perfect family pet.

    Pekingese are independent, bold dogs that love to be near people. Although they are small in size, these little lion-dogs have big-dog personalities. An ancient breed, the Pekingese originated in China, where they were sacred companions to royalty. Pekingese have short legs, flat faces and long, thick coats, and are affectionate and warm towards their families. Due to their low activity level, Pekingese make excellent apartment dogs.
