Japanese Chin Facts & Tidbits
From The Japanese Chin Club of America: The Japanese Chin is a fairly healthy breed with a typical life expectancy of 10-12 years; some live to be 15 years of age or more. The majority of problems seen in the Chin are common to toy dogs in general. Among the most common are luxating patellas (slipping kneecaps), cataracts, and early-onset heart murmurs. Reputable breeders attempt to breed from stock that are free of major health defects in hopes that their progeny will have a better chance at a healthy life.
Japanese Chin Bits: The Japanese Chin we know today probably originated in Ancient China and then made its way to Japan. These delightful little dogs were often given as very special tokens of affection or as part of trade or treaty negotiations.
In ancient times, Japanese Chins were often kept in suspended dog cages, much like a bird cage, hanging from the ceiling. They were fed only rice and saki to keep their size small. Strict laws governed the protection of this breed and death was punishment for many infractions against this prized dog.
In Japan, the name for all dogs is ini, but the Japanese Chin was regarded as as a being worthy of its own class (chin).
The Japanese Chin was first glimpsed by the Western world in 1853 when Commodore Matthew Perry sailed into what we know as Tokyo and introduced Japan to the rest of the world. The Japanese Chin caught the fancy of aristocrats and working class alike and many were imported into Britain and the United States.
President Franklin Pierce, Jefferson Davis, and Caroline Perry Belmont (the Admiral’s daughter) were amongst the first Americans to enjoy the Japanese Chin. They were called Japanese Spaniels in the USA until 1977, when the name was changed to Japanese Chin.
