Information about Japanese Chin

Japanese Chin Puppies

The exact transition from a Chinese breed to a Japanese one is a bit murky, but the Japanese Chin's sole job, as a companion to humans, has never changed. This ancient breed was exclusive to the nobility, accompanying and entertaining royalty. They may have made it to Japan as royal gifts, where they are still considered companion dogs. Your Japanese Chin puppy is a lively and playful little guy. He's agile and bright, good at learning and performing tricks and almost cat-like in his alertness, agility and balance. Small in size, big on affection, the Japanese Chin makes a devoted family friend.
