The Chin has a single, profuse, silky, soft and straight coat with a plumed tail. His colouring is either black and white, red and white, or black and white with tan points.

Gentle and affectionate, yet playful and spirited, the Japanese Chin is a small dog with a big personality. These dogs can make ideal companions, and enjoy receiving and giving attention. The Japanese Chin loves to be cuddled and enjoys his creature comforts. This is not the right breed for those that do not have the time to commit to a pet, as the Japanese Chin thrives on attention and love from his owner. These dogs are responsive and intelligent, which makes training easier, and they are perfect for inexperienced dog owners and senior citizens as well as for more experienced dog owners. Although some Japanese Chins can be difficult to housebreak, obedience training should not prove too much of a problem using positive methods.

The Japanese Chin is a charming, lively, and happy animal. Pleasant, loving and intelligent. Affectionate and extremely devoted to its master. This breed loves everyone it is familiar with, but is known to be reserved around strangers and in unfamiliar situations, socialize this dog well. If you do have small children, teach them to be nice and gentle with the dog.

The Japanese Chin, or Japanese Spaniel as he is also known, is a lively, aristocratic toy dog with a very distinctive Oriental expression. Bred with the sole purpose of being a companion, the Japanese Chin is intelligent, alert, and inquisitive. He is also very responsive and affectionate with those he knows but may be reserved with strangers. In Japan, the Chin breeds are considered royalty and descendants of Chinese aristocracy. It is believed that the Chin breed originated in China centuries ago and was eventually brought into Japan through gift giving to Japanese royalty.
The life expectancy of the Japanese Chin is around 12-14 years, and there are a number of health problems associated with this breed. This includes sensitivity to chemicals and drugs, susceptibility to heatstroke and respiratory problems due to his short muzzle, luxating patella, seizures, cataracts, and PRA. The parents of the Japanese Chin puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
