Description

The Japanese Spaniel or Japanese Chin is a toy breed. The breed is a companion dog, or lap dog. They are known as the dog of Japanese Royalty. They have long, straight hair that is silky. The most common color of coat for the Japanese Chin is black and white. The breed can also have a red and white coat. Their tails are curled and feathered. Their muzzles are very short and upturned. Their eyes are extremely large for their body size. A white blaze, or spot, can often be found in the middle of their foreheads. This spot is known as “Buddhas Thumb print.” The origin of the Japanese Chin is much debated. Some believe the breed first appeared in Japan circa 732, as gifts from Korea. Others disagree and say their origins are Chinese. What is known is that they were introduced to Europe in the 1600s by Portuguese sailors. Commodore Perry, a naval commander, made the breed famous when he gave them to Queen Victoria in England and to the President of the United States.
