Chihuahua Japanese Chin Mix

East meets West (well sort of)!

A Chihuahua Japanese Chin mix dog is called a Chin-wa.

The Japanese Chin, also known a Japanese Spaniel, is a companion dog that was popular with Japanese royalty.

They vary in size and weight but generally they are between 8-11 inches tall (from the shoulder) and weigh between 4-7lbs. They are commonly black and white or red and white with a long straight silky coat.

Japanese Chins are affectionate and playful. They are little entertainers and can be taught to perform tricks.

Due to their small size, they are good match with Chihuahuas.


Chihuahuas are known for being the world's smallest dog breed with a very big heart (not literally!) and an even bigger personality so already you are off to a winner with a Chihuahua cross dog.

Some descriptive words used to describe Chihuahuas include; feisty, affectionate, self confident, bold, brave and cuddly, not all in that order.

While it is not easy to predict the size, coat or temperament of a mixed breed dog, you can get a reasonable idea by finding out about the characteristics of both breeds.

With the new label 'Designer Dogs' making crosses very popular it is still very important you adopt a puppy from a responsible breeder or better still a rescue centre.
