    Japanese Chin
    China Japón FCI 206

    Chin Japonés

    The true origin of the Japanese Chin It is still controversial, Although a general consensus, concludes that you originated in China.

    These dogs were brought to Japan around year 732. Some maintain the ancestors of these dogs first arrived to Japan around the year 732, as a gift from royalty Korea, while others argue that you copies of Japanese Chin were offered as gifts to the Empress of Japan in the mid-6th century, other theories say that they arrived in Japan in the year 1000.

    But beyond all the controversy regarding the origin, all agree on one thing, the Japanese Chin, is an authentic “Japanese”, because it reflects the Japanese sensitivity to detail.

    The Japanese established various breeds of dogs, with a defined purpose that was work, that Japan considered something different, different from a “dog“, He was considered a work on farm animal, for hunting, to care for cattle, etc., but the Japanese Chin, It was something very special because it was strictly considered a companion dog.

    His appearance and distinctive personality was quickly captured the hearts of the Japanese and that led to ownership of these dogs to be limited to persons of Royal and noble blood.

    As a result, every noble House was raising its own standard, reason why there are many variations of the Japanese Chin, in terms of size, the density of the layer, the eyes, the personalidad…

    Once the race was introduced in the West, a strong desire of the people by the smaller copies (those who weighed a maximum 4,5 Kg.), He carried that size was the most popular and became the official standard of various canine clubs around the world.

    Professor Ludvic Von Schulmuth studied canine origins from a find of skeletal remains of dogs found in human settlements dating back to the eighth Millennium BC, in the Gobi desert. On the basis of the information collected, he created a genealogical tree of Tibetan dogs which gathered very interesting information concerning the origin of certain breeds that are today very popular.

    The Gobi desert is a large desert region located between northern China and the South of Mongolia. Can be one of the deserts, or desert areas largest and most important worldwide. Around it the Altai Mountains and the steppes of Mongolia in the North, the plateau of Tibet and the plains of northern China by the Southwest. The word gobi means ' desert’ in Mongolian. The Gobi is composed of different geographic and ecological regions, based on variations in climate and topography.

    Historically, the Gobi desert He is noted for being part of the Mongol Empire and the location of several important cities along the Silk Road.

    Occupying the 30% of the national territory, great Gobi Mongolia covers capricious montes, sandy dunes, vast plateaus, steppes with its aromatic herbs and, Since then, a varied animal world, within the canine ancestors found Professor Ludvic Von Schulmuth.

    Ludvic von Schulmuth defined as origin of certain dog breeds a former denizen dog of the Gobi desert, whose remains were found in places where stored manure or litter, and called them “Gobi Desert Kitchen Midden Dog”, This animal came several lines which were giving rise to several breeds. For example, a small dog of soft hair and drooping ears that was the ancestor of Tibetan Spaniel, the Japanese Chin, and the Pekinese. Another branch which descends from the “Gobi Desert Kitchen Midden Dog ” gave rise to the Papillon and to the Chihuahua long-haired. Y, another branch of the same dog of the Gobi desert, gave rise to the emergence of the Pug and Shih Tzu.

    There is also some documentation that indicates Portuguese sailors introduced the breed to Europe in the century 17 through the gift of some to Catherine of Braganza, Queen Consort of King Charles II of England, but there is more evidence that the first Japanese Chin opened steps after borders, It was a gift of the Emperor of Japan offered a U.S. Navy officer, Matthew C. Perry, When he visited East in 1853 to open bilateral trade. The naval officer, took a litter of seven Japanese Chin, and to reach their land only survived two, and who gave them is something that is still not known with certainty.

    What we do have full certainty is that the Japanese Chin, also known as the Spaniel Japanese has been the dog of Japanese royalty.

    According to the classification made by Stanley Coren after analyzing the responses of more of 200 the AKC judges ("The intelligence of dogs", Stanley city, Ediciones B, 1995), the Japanese Chin is the No. 62 from the list.

    The Japanese Chin ladra only when it is necessary for the purpose of alerting the family of the arrival of a visitor or something out of the ordinary, then is a quiet breed.

    It's a very special race, they have very feline attitudes, is more, is said to have the character of a cat, and you will see because…

    The Japanese Chin is warning, intelligent and independent, and it uses its feet to wash and dry your face. Other feline features are your preferences for the rest in elevated surfaces, as the backups of the sofa and chairs. It has a spectacular ability to walk through a table of tea without throwing any object, If that doesn't make it a cat total!!!

    These dogs were bred and trained for the purpose of loving his people. Although it is usually a quiet dog, He also known for the amount of mischief that make, Welcome to all, as the call “Spin Chin”, dan fast turns in a circle as if they danced but supported only on his hind legs, While with their Forelegs dejan them interwoven and shaking them up top down at full speed, they are very funny.

    Some tend to “sing”, they produce a noise which can vary between a minimum triune to a high sound and quite serious in relation to its size, almost with the quality of Opera that sounds like “booooooo”. On race Basenji in the right column you can see a video of the dog singing, It is very similar to what makes the Japanese Chin.

    This small dog of friendly aspect, It has an appearance very similar to the Peking, But unlike, its legs are longer, and the color of the fur is different; It may be black and white or red and white. The fur is soft and long; the large, dark eyes, well separated each other; the tail, well endowed with hair, relies on the back; the ears are triangular in shape and small size; the snout is short and flattened, and large heads relative to their body.

    The orbits of the eyes of large contribute to moisture in the face and the folds of skin around the crushed nose and facial area, You can trap moisture and cause fungus problems. The face should occasionally be cleaned with a damp cloth and folds, with a cotton swab.

    The diet is an important factor in the health and status of the Japanese Chin, Many specimens may be allergic to the corn, for example.

    Due to their small size they don't need too much exercise, Although, requires frequent walks, because they are active and love to be outdoors. They adapt well to life in a Department or small homes. On the other hand, their fur should brush your daily, as it is often about getting caught.

    The Japanese Chin is a long-lived, to round the 15 years, but in many cases can be extended to more or less the 18 years of age.

    They weigh between 1,8 and 3,3 kand and measured at the cross, of 21 a 25 cm.. The litter is usually fairly small, of between 3 and 4 Puppies.

    It measures each 30 cm to cross and weighs between 6 and 8 kg. His confident nature, docile and friendly made a prized pet of the Carlin. The Carlin is particularly a dog “with sense of humor”, exhibiting very human facial expressions given its bone structure. By striking appearance some people tend to think of the Carlin characteristics are the result of genetic manipulation or inbred crosses. However, the characteristics of the Carlin are similar in the last five hundred years, period in which Europeans began it importing from China.

    Carlin queue has a feature spiral or letter “Q”. This variation in the way of the tail is due to the vertebrae in this portion of the column are actually hemivertebra. In some few puppies, This alteration of the form can be extended to the rest of the column and present the animal spina bifida. The spine of the animal must feel before purchasing to avoid choosing a sick puppy. An animal that suffers from this malformation should not be reproduced in order to not pass this problem to their offspring.

    Given the shape of the skull, the eyes of the Carlin have a look jumpy and lively. To find the eyes located above, they are more exposed to friction with plants and objects to the eyes of other animals, and it is advisable to take them to the vet as soon as possible if they have an injury.

    A 1% the Cubs can reach presenting a degenerative neurological disease called Encephalitis the Carlino (or tap for its acronym in English). This disease is lethal and has no known cure. For this reason dogs must not be reproduced within the two years, in order to not transmit the gene to their offspring. Last year of life is very unlikely to reach Carlin present this disease.
