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.

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 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.

Crested Chinese

The Crested Chinese (Chinese Crested Dog) It is a breed of hairless small companion dog (weighs between 2.7 to 5.5 Kg and has a height of 28 to 33 cm.) originating in China.

The origins of the Chinese crested dog are difficult to trace. Hairless dogs appear to arise by mutation in the world, but they have remained mainly in Central America and South.

The crested Chinese, apparently there are in China since the 13th century. It is said that the Chinese sailors kept these dogs in vessels like buzzards dogs, and that they exchanged them with local traders of all the places that were. In this way, almost without love..., the race was distributed in Turkey, Egypt, South Africa and, possibly, in Central America and South.

In Europe, they appear in tables of the year 1800, and later in pictures. It was at the end of the 19th century when Ida Garrett, a nurturer amateur hairless dogs, He began to promote the breed in Europe.

With the help of a handful of committed breeders (including the famous Gypsy Rose Lee and Ida Garrett), the Chinese crested dog gradually gained fans in America and Europe. In 1991 -After a century of effort - the breed was recognized by the AKC.

With the time, race distinguishing from others without hair by size and by the obvious presence of the crest, the plume in the queue and the “socks” in the legs, they do the Chinese crested a breed separate and consolidated.
How long there was Chinese Cresteds in China is something that is not known with certainty, among other things because now there is no Cresteds in China. And the race is not extinct because the British led Chinese crested specimens to the British Empire and retained its features until recent times.

They were the British, those who kept the race and her improved to make it as it is today. For its part, the Americans have also done much for the evolution of the race but always based on British lines. In general I would say that the Americans have more care the nature (Let us not forget that the origins of the breed are primitive and perhaps less time “domestic” the usual). On the European continent, existing lines of crested Chinese, come - also- of British origin dog.

As most of the breeds of hairless dog, the crested Chinese has two varieties, with or without hair, known in English as Greenland (without hair) and Powderpuff (with hair). Greenland and Powderpuff varieties seem to be two different races, but the balding due to an incomplete dominant gene in a single race.

Which has no hair has the soft skin, as the human and retains Tufts on the legs (socks) and the head (crest). In addition to being an incomplete dominant gene, hairless gene has a prenatal lethal effect, known as homocigotismo. The zygotes affected with double hairless gene (one in four), they fail to live and be reabsorb, with all the term living are heterozygous.

There nothing really clear in the history of the breed Chinese crested. The only thing we can say with certainty is that, as other races “nude” and some races “primitive”, comes from the Canis africanus and not of the Canis comunis, which come from the majority of breeds of domestic dogs as we know it.

Crested Chinese name has a clear and logical reason as to “Crested” referred to in, in effect, We can say that they have crest on the head. On the other hand, the Chinese origin is somewhat casual.

Nude races known seem to come all of Latin America. The most known and recognized by the FCI are the Mexican hairless dog (Naked Mexican) and the dog without hair Peru, both with the same genetic varieties than the Chinese crested, namely, they occur in two varieties, without hair and hair.

Until recently relatively very, the variety with hair (Powderpuff) could not presents in competitions of beauty, Although it was always used and is still used for farming and improvement of the breed.

Both varieties are now also recognized and valued both the breeding and exhibition, they compete together in the vast majority of countries, the Greenland variety and Powderpuff can birth in a same litter and, except in the mantle, they have the same standard.

The crested Chinese, is a nice dog, sensitive and lively. It tends to be very loyal to the family and very attached to a person in particular, who considered their leader. They also tend to be somewhat shy with strangers and are always alert.
Early socialization, enough exercise and affection, they will result in an exceptional pet.
