What is the Japanese Chin?
The first record of a Japanese Chin (also known as the Japanese Spaniel) is found in literature from the Nara era (8th Century). It was the oldest record of the Chin described during this time when a dog was sent from Korea to the Japanese Imperial court.
The Japanese Chin were influenced by these dogs that were sent by this envoy to the Tang Dynasty. It was bred using this small dog with another breed brought over from Ryukyu (Okinawa) during the 9th century and it then evolved to become more of the typical Japanese dog species that are in existence today.
During the reign of the 5th General (shogun) Tsunayoshi Tokugawa (1680- 1709) the Chin was bred as a room dog in the Edo castle. It was loved by the Shogun’s concubines and it became popular to have a Japanese Chin amongst the Daimyos (Lords).
Over time it went from becoming a pet dog to the Imperial family, the Daimyos and the merchants of the time, it became a status symbol and eventually the Japanese Chin reached the working class people.
In the late 19th century, the Japanese Chin was given the name the "Japanese Spaniel" by the American Kennel Club. However, to avoid confusion, as its lineage does not relate to the spaniel breed, the name was subsequently changed to the Japanese Chin.
