Temperament & Personality
It is an affectionate breed that requires constant companionship and has cat-like movements. Despite its size, the dog is an effective guard dog. It barks at strangers and stops only when the owner commands it to stop. The Papillon side of this dog does make it eager to please its owner. On the other hand, the Japanese chin adds elements of stubbornness to it. However, if left unsupervised among highly spirited children, the dog might get hurt. If left alone for a long period of time, the canine can become agile.
