Japanese Chin Description
  The Japaness Chin is a dainty little spaniel with a short, broad face, and a soft, feathered coat. It is also known as the Japanese Spaniel. It has a thick ruff covering the neck and chest. Its forehead is quite round, with a well-defined stop. Its nose is wide and the nostrils open. The nasal canal is extremely short. The Black and White Japanese Spaniels must have black noses. Other colored dogs have nose color to match the color of the coat markings. Its dark, almond-shaped eyes are expressive and protruding. Its upside-down, v-shaped ears are well covered with hair. Its body is about the same length as it is high and its front legs are straight and fine-boned. Its feathered tail curls up over the back. It has an elegant high-stepping gait.
