The Japanese Chin is a very loving toy dog who has so much character along with being very independent and loyal.  Don't be fooled into thinking they are a pretty little lapdog, even though this certainly isn't something they wouldn't say no to!    They love a good rough and tumble playing, agility is certainly an activity they enjoy whilst they can also be quiet and would love to sit with you and have a cuddle. 

Whether you just want a pet to love or a dog to show, the Japanese Chin can and will give you both.

Once you've owned a chin you won't look back, but be prepared, as you will own another and then another........

But don't be fooled, you don't own a Chin...... they own you.
