Overview
A favorite of the Japanese court, this breed could only be owned by members of the Japanese Imperial family, and were often offered as a royal gift. In 1853 the Japanese Chin became exceedingly popular when a pair of this elegant breed was given to Queen Victoria. In 1964 they were honored as one of Japan's national symbols. Originally named the Japanese Spaniel, the AKC changed the name in 1977. Today the Japanese Chin has a small following in the United States, but remains highly adored in Japan.
Character
Japanese Chins are a fine-boned, dainty breed with a square shape. They have an inquisitive expression with an Oriental appearance. This breed is a true aristocrat; lively and high stepping. They were originally bred to be a pampered companion and maintain that role today.
Temperament
This breed is very intelligent, loving, and pleasant. They are also affectionate, mild mannered, and playful. The Japanese Chin is very adept at mirroring the moods of those around them. They are deeply devoted to their master and love everyone. With their gentle and sensitive demeanor, this breed is best suited for homes with older children. They are good with other dogs and pets. Although they are not an excessive barker, they make good watchdogs. They thrive on being the center of attention. This is a breed that is full of courage with a mind of their own. Graced with an excellent memory, they have definite likes and dislikes and never forget a friend or foe. The Japanese Chin, as a family pet is unrivaled.
Care
The Japanese Chin requires daily gentle combing and brushing to keep the coat free from tangles. They must be combed and brushed in a specific manner, so a lesson from a professional dog groomer is recommended. Bathe only when necessary, and dry shampoo occasionally. The eyes and ears need to be cleaned and checked on a daily basis. As is the case in many short-muzzle breeds, the Japanese Chin is prone to respiratory problems. They also have a tendency toward eye infections and heat prostration.
Coat
The Japanese Chin's coat is thick, straight, long, and silky. The fur is more profuse around the neck and chest. The ears and tail are feathered. Their fine coat stands off the body and is white in color with patches of black, yellow, sable, orange, brindle, and red. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
The Japanese Chin is much more obedient that most of the other toy breeds. They are eager to please, so training is done quite easily. This breed excels at learning and performing tricks. Since they are sensitive and mild mannered harsh training methods must never be used. They respond best to gentle, loving, fair, and consistent methods. Basic obedience is recommended.
Activity
This breed requires a minimal amount of exercise. They enjoy a short walk or play session daily. They are perfectly suited for apartment or condominium dwelling, but will also benefit from having the opportunity to play in a small securely fenced yard. It is very important to remember that the Japanese Chin is highly sensitive to temperature extremes.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Japanese Chin puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered. Having a litter of puppies does nothing to help your dog, but can instill the possibility of getting mammary cancer later on in life. Please just get her fixed so that she can live a happy, healthy and long life with you.

The recommendation used to be to have one litter then get them spayed. That is not the case today. Most Veterinarians recommend spaying before the first heat cycle so get your girl spayed and not bred. Whelping is very risky and you could lose your beloved pet by breeding her. Please leave the breeding up to the experienced breeders....you'll be glad you did.

Japanese Chin's colors Why does a Japanese Chin have different colors?

2 Comments

Anonymous

The Japanese Chin's coat color can be either black and white, sable (black and white with tan points), or red and white. These colors can vary in intensity (such as lemon and white, mahogany and white). The coloration of the dog is not for any purpose but for aesthetic reasons. In making the Japanese Chin breed, several colors were standardized by the several Kennel Clubs that accepted the Japanese Chin as a breed.

Sadly, the Japanese Chin is known to live under 10 years of age on average. Because of breeding issues, the dogs don't tend to live as long as other small breeds that live an average of 15 - 17 years. There are no reports as to whether males or females live longer. It is all in the breeding/linage of the dog and what food the dog is fed over it's life-time.

Mine have often lived to 14 years and my customer's Japanese Chins have an average lifespan of about 14-15 years. If they are well bred, healthy, happy, have good conformation, and are well cared for, they will outlive many of the other breeds. I see very few health problems in the Japanese Chin breed. They are a hardy, athletic, people pleasing breed. They are the best kept secret in the dog world.

How do Chins and beagles get along? I have two boys right now, one 15 months old, one 13 years old, just lost my 14 year old girl which I adored. I want a small dog as a companion, no breeding and will be spayed. How do these breeds get along. The younger dog I have is rather rough, would I need to keep separated? He likes to sleep on the back of the couch too.

I am sorry to say I can't recommend a Japanese Chin for your family. I don't think a Beagle and Japanese Chin are very compatible. Chins do not like to be rough housed. They are a fancy and dainty breed that requires gentle family members and calm, quiet, companion pets. I would say absolutely not with the breed you have and why have a second dog if you have to keep them separated. Please consider either another beagle or another high energy, rough playing dog to even things up. A chin would be no match for a beagle unless, of course, it was extremely laid back and very, very gentle.

The dog's should have no problem getting along. Just understand that the Japanese Chin is a frail dog compared to the Beagle, so any play must be supervised until the pup is an adult and can tell the Beagle to stop when he/she wants to stop.

As a Japanese Chin breeder I agree with the first persons comments completely. I would never subject a Japanese Chin to a rough housing larger breed. Chins are fine boned, polite, and would be overwhelmed by a beagle or terrier breed. It's a really good thing you are checking on this..I commend you for being an owner who checks it out before putting them together and having a tragedy. Extremely tolerant is another word for the Japanese Chin...they will do anything to not fight back. Stick with your Beagle breed.

That is true of the black/white and the sable and white Japanese chin coat colors. But the lemon and white are often born solid white and their spots -which are there- don't really show until they get older.

Because the Japanese Chin is a small breed, they do not consume as much water as a large dog, of course. My chins have free access to fresh water and I only have to fill the self waterer every few days with about 7 or more drinking from it. It probably holds close to a gallon. They really don't eat much either.

I have read that Japanese Chins are average shedders...I, as a breeder, think that they may be a bit above average depending on the time of the year. If you brush you chin often it will help alot. All dogs shed..it's just whether or not they loose the shed hair or have it become matts, all dogs shed. The myth of dogs that don't shed is just that...a myth. If you don't mind putting up with some seasonal shedding, the Japanese Chin is the toy breed of choice.

It really depends on the time of year. In the winter and spring time my chin sheds quite a bit. So much actually that there's clumps of fur in the corners of the rooms if I don't brush him at least twice a day. In the summer and fall though he barely sheds. In fact, if I brush him once a day I don't even notice he sheds.

Bladder stone in Japanese Chin Our Japanese Chin developed bladder stones. She had to have surgery but she seems to be fully recovered. What can we do to prevent this in the future? Thank you for your help

So glad you chin has recovered... I would first analize his diet, water, etc. Does he drink treated water? Is the food he eats extra high in some nutrients or deficient in others? Beware of stores or places that will want to sell you their "special" foods. No need for special foods if the ration you have him on is a balanced, complete food. I would find a nutritionalist to analize the ration who is impartial. Blatter stones are fairly common in dogs but can become fatal if obstruction occurs.

Your Chin should always be an indoor dog. They love to play outside for a short time but this breed is happiest living indoors with their owner. They thrive on companionship. Bring your chin in and I bet it's behavior will improve.

First, I must ask why is your Japanese Chin kept outside? They are bred for companionship and since he can't be inside, he can't have companionship....no wonder he's going crazy. Please, please, let your chin live in the house with you or find him an owner who will. This is not a good environment for a loving companion dog. I'mn sure with some companionship, he will calm right down. He is trying to tell you something, please take time to listen to him....he wants to be inside with you.

He may be a Jap Chin mix but not a full blood. He does not have the correct facial structure of a Chin. They are bug eyed, short nosed little round faced dogs. Good luck finding out what he is. You can send in a blood test to several different laboratories to find out exactly what kind of mix he is. The first one that comes to mind is VETGEN. Google it.

Occasionally Japanese Chins have "backward sneezes" it's a funny sounding sneeze attack which is harmless and only last a minute of two. If you believe this is not what's going on with your Chin, please contact your veterinarian.

If your chin has had puppies, sometimes the mom will "blow" their coat and look sort of bad. If your chin has not given birth this is not normal, seek another opinion. My chin never lost hair like that but her skin was very sensitive. It helped her tremendously when we switched her to grain free food such as "Blue Buffalo Co. You might try that. She had a few episodes with breakouts we tried steroid shots and creams, but what finally cleared her up was the antibiotic Simplecef. Remember, skin is the bodys largest organ don't let her get infected she could become very ill. Hope this helps.

It just depends on the personality of the dog. However, the chihuahua and japanese chin are two TOTALLY different dogs. It's been my experience that chins are more affectionate toward a specific group while chihuahuas tend to be more one person type dogs. This isn't always the case, it depends upon social interaction you give your dog within the first year. If you want your chin to be only your dog then limit their interraction with others and increase your presence within their daily lives for the first year. But remember that by doing this you are also creating a dog that is socially untrained and will never be suitable for small kids and other dogs. You must ALWAYS be present with the dog for atleast 70% of the day because you are creating a dog that see's you as a daily necessity instead of a companion/friend. Chins are a very emotional breed so this isnt a method of traing that I completely agree with for this breed.

I took him to the vet and had him checked out and got his shots in January and she thought he was between 3-4 years old. He is one of the best dogs I have ever had. I have three other inside dogs and he gets along great with them. My question is, he is more like a stuff animal. I bring him to work with me and he stays in his bed about all day. Even when clients come in he does not get up. He does not play much with the other dogs, when he walks he walks really slow and he never shows any emotions so it’s hard to tell if he is happy or not feeling well. Do these dogs not show any emotions or should I take him to the vet and have some blood work done on him?

My feeling is that he may still be figuring everything out. It must have been a total world shaker to find himself dumped or lost What is he like just with you? Does he sniff you? He sounds traumatized so maybe just give him time and extra affection. Thank you for taking him in. It never hurts to have him examined on the other hand.

Your local pet supply store should have a variety of pet hair removal tools. You can try the typical sticky roller but you're likely to go thru a lot of sheets. I'd look for something reusable, like a lint mitt or something. Good thing about Chin's is their long fur stays on the surface of things for easy cleaning rather then embedding itself. You can also use a vacuum attachment.

Let me start off by telling you that Japanese Chin are very catlike. They clean thier faces on a regular basis by rubbing it. If she is tearing alot it may be due to dust, pollens but generally speaking it is just cleaning like a cat. The loss of hair around the neck can be from shedding naturally, a collar around the neck is rubbing it too much. Try and figure out when the started and it may answer your own question. Also, if you have other pets and they rough house it can be from that. Most likely the loss of hair around the neck is shedding, or a collar.

The Japanese Chin breed is sensitive to corn. If you have it in your dog food or treats, that might be the problem.

I had a similar problem with my chin. I took him to the vet and they treated him with sterhoids and antibiotics. After a few rounds his skin became more irritated. I searched on the net and found it may be a fungal infection. I found a product at Tractor Supply Company that was used for cleaning the eyes of cattle. It cleared up the fungal infection. I now clean his eyes an creases around his muzzle and eyes regularly and it has not come back.

Hello everyone, I am looking at doing all the research on Japanese Chin's and so far is looking really good for my life style. I have one question, I was checking on the weight of the average Chin, and one website told me a male is over 7lbs and a female is under 7lbs. Is this true? I want a male because I was told most the time males would become more attacted to me seeing how I am a woman and most the times females will become attacted to a man. How big will a male Chin become? Thank you!

I have both a male, Diego, and female, Diohji, Japanese Chin. Diego is approximately 13 pounds, and Diohji is about 10. As far as the male dog being attracted to females and vice versa, it is true in our case. Diego is my dog and absolutely will not leave my side if I am home. Diohji is more my Fiance's dog. She listens to him over me, and would rather curl up on the couch with him over me... unless he's not home, then she figures I'm second best and still likes to snuggle! Hope that helps!

The average Chin weighs between 7 pounds upwards. YOu can have a tall Chin that weighs 7 pound and a small one that weighs that much. Once a Chin is spayed or neutered the weight goes up. We don't go by pounds anymore at the shows but by color and height etc..

I have a nine year old male JC. Kato is his name, I am looking at some of the reports on here about weight. Kato was good at 6 yrs her was 18lb. Then last year he had to have surgery on his neck disc problems, he was on steroids for 12 weeks, his weight shot up to 25lb. He was a porker. Of course could not walk him due to surgery and had to carry him everywhere outside to do business. But, he is active again and walking great, the weight is slow to come off I have him on Blue Buffolo Yellow bag not diet but weight control. Vet says she would like to see him at 20 or less. So statistics are different for each dog. I was looking at puppies and they were saying 7lbs. Well, not so true.. :) Good Luck. Chins are the best.
