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.
