The Latvian Pekingese and Japanese Chin Club

The aristocracy of ancient China and Japan highly appreciated these dog breeds and up to the 19th century forbade exporting them out of the country. Even today the Pekingeses and Japanese Chins are rather rare breeds, but those who have become acquainted with the sensitive, lovely Japanese Chin or the independent Pekingese, that have the heart of a lion, remain faithful to this breed for life.
