Visits are a great idea. In the past year I have been staying at my familys farm wich has plenty of room but I added another dog and my Mother got another dog for a total of 4. Not bad since two are tiny ones, lol. But it took a bit to learn to b a good pack. I am not sure how cats mix with the dogs but I'm sure visits won't hurt any. Good Luck
Are they sometimes called japanese spaniels? Many many years ago we took in 2 strays, my mom this time, found wandering. The female was pregnant but I remember the vet saying they were Japanese spaniels and they looked much like chin except the legs were shorter I think.
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
I am not sure if they are known as anything else. Not many around here either. I might have to get on the Japanese Chin forum….lol
