Japanese chin: all about the dog breed
Japanese hins are small charming dogs with a flat muzzle and large eyes that look at the world gullibly and touchingly. Their body is covered with straight thick hair. The most popular colors: black and white and red and white.
Despite their small stature, Japanese chins are energetic. They need to move quite a lot, and they love games with the owner in the fresh air.
In Japanese khins, independence is combined with extraordinary tenderness towards the owners and the whole family. They are friendly towards the whole world: strangers, other dogs and even cats. Also, Japanese chin easily gets along with an older child. They rarely bark.
Japanese chins are strong and hardy, but due to a flattened muzzle, they can suffer from diseases of the respiratory organs and the cardiovascular system. Protect pets from direct sunlight and severe frosts.
Japanese hins were favorites of Queen Victoria, the Rothschild family, the Marquise of Angles, and many other titled persons.
