Book Description

May 1997
Adopted as the highly prized pet of royalty, the Japanese Chin was originally sent as a gift from the Empress of Japan to the Empress of China. Queens Victoria and Alexandra both fancied this Toy breed. The authors trace its origin from Oriental beginnings to present day status as a glamorous companion and show dog, and offer an in-depth analysis of the breed Standards, and a special section on caring for this lively extroverted dog. Pamela Cross Stern and Tom Mather are both international judges with decades of personal experience in the breed.

a good book for the beginner but doesn't go into enough detail for the problems that arise in breeding and rearing Chins, and there is no 'what if this happens' page.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the book I thought it would be 22 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just rescued a Japanese Chin from the Humane Society, and wanted some info on some quirks of the breed, personality traits, best ways to feed and care for a Chin, etc. This book is ONLY for people who want to have a show dog. It gives some of the history of the breed, grooming tips, how to select the best show dog, and also some tips on judging. Nothing at all about the best food/toys to buy ... if you happen to just want a pet. Not only that, the description did not make it clear that this book is published in and intended for England, so those of us in the colonies don't have much use for the specifics anyway.
I'm very disappointed! This costs too much to be so [disappointing]!

This book is a must for anyone interested in learning about Japanese Chin. The best book ever written on the breed for history, care, how to purchase a puppy and general education. Lovely color pictures!
