Japanese Chin Question

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.
