  • 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.
