The Japanese Chin is described as more cat-like than canine. They are know to climb to the higher part of a room, such as tables or shelves.
Favored by Japanese Royalty, Japanese Chin have a history of being companion pets to imperial family members. They were presented as gifts and considered worth more than gold.
If you love both cats and dogs, the Japanese chin can be a good pet option.
