If you like a dog with dainty legs and expressive eyes, than this Maltese mix might be right for you! Although most are all white or white with black patches, Jatese can come in a variety of colors from red to lemon.

Hair is usually long and feathered. These dogs should be brushed daily to keep their beautiful coat tangle free.

Since Japanese Chins are average shedders, they may shed a little or not at all. There is no guarantee either way. Full grown Japanese Chin Maltese mixes can weigh anywhere from 4-12lbs.
