Japanese Chin

One of life's mysteries is why the Japanese Chin is still comparatively rare and unknown. Here is a little dog that has it all - it is easy to care for, lovely to look at, and has even had Royal patronage - Queen Alexandra owned 261 of them!

The Japanese Chin is one of the most ancient of breeds and its exact history is difficult to determine, but ancestors can be traced back to China or Korea more than 1100 years ago. In Japan there were two distinct size/types of Chins and they were bred separately and exclusively for centuries in noble households, and were so highly regarded that no ‘commoner’ could possess one.
