Japanese Chin: Health Issues & Personality
Japanese Chin:
In the eighth century B.C., forbearers of the Chin were introduced into Japan.  For centuries, they were the pampered pets of the imperial court.  The Chin became known in the west in the 1860's.

Protected by its sumptuous coat, the high stepping Japanese Chin moves with grace and considerable elegance. 
In fact, your Japanese Chin can race through the house with cat-like nimbleness, never upsetting or breaking anything!

This toy dog tends to snack rather than eat, and delights in sharing tasty morsels from its master's plate.  To prevent tangles in the Chin's fine hair, brush and comb the dog every day.  Complete the grooming by spreading the coat out flat over the body with a horsehair glove.  Wash the delicate eyes regularly with a cotton swab dipped in boiled water. 

Average Lifespan Of The Japanese Chin: 12-14 years.
Average Weight: 4-7 lbs.

Inherited Health Disorders:


Patellar Luxation:  Tendency for the kneecap to dislocate, can cause considerable pain. Corrective surgery may be neccessary, but generally the prognosis is good.
