Breed Details


The Japillon is a mix between a purebred Japanese Chin and a purebred Papillon. They are called hybrid dogs due to their origination from two different pure breeds.

These hybrids are small in size and stand no more than 11 inches. They can weigh in between 7 to 20 pounds. These dogs are alert, loyal, social and cheerful. Their square shapped face resembles that of Japanese Chin but their snout is like a Papillon.


They are mostly found in white with black or tan markings but can also have other colours like brown, red, silver or a mix of these colours.


They have long and silky coat.


The Japillon dogs are friendly, sweet and very cute dogs. Bred to be companion dogs, these hybrids are true companions in the sense that they like to be with their owner and family members most of the time and enjoy spending time with them. These dogs are very good and affectionate with children but children should be supervised not to rough handle these delicate and fragile dogs as they can get injured easily. They are equally good with other dogs and pets in the family. These dogs are very intelligent and can be taught to perform small tricks. They are very clean and tidy as well. They are alert dogs and will bark to signal arrival of a stranger or of something unusual. These cute little dogs are very active and will require more exercise than average companion dogs. They will make very good family, companion and watch dogs.


They are delicate and fragile dogs that need to be handled carefully as they are prone to injuries. Children should be trained to handle these dogs with care. Their coat requires moderate grooming.


This dog breed is very intelligent and obedient. They are intelligent enough to learn and perform new tricks. These dogs are very easy to train.


The Japillon dogs are very active and high energy dogs that would require lots of physical and mental stimulation to be happy and content. Daily walks and playing activities are important for these dogs to relieve their energies.
