The Japanese Chin is a relatively rare toy breed with a distinctly noble and ancient heritage known for being even-tempered, loyal and affectionate. Charming toy companions of silky, profuse coat and an unmistakably aristocratic bearing. Often described as a distinctly “feline” breed, this bright and amusing lapdog is fastidious, graceful, generally quiet and fond of curling up on a lap or historically in the sleeve of a kimono. A relatively healthy breed but because of their short snout / flat-faced / brachycephalic classification they can be more prone to heat intolerance and breathing difficulties, so extra vigilance is required in hot weather. Alert, playful and affectionate, Japanese Chins are devoted to their family members are are good with other animals. Renowned for their climbing abilities and this is one of the reasons they are often described as being 'cat-like'. It is not unusual to find them perched on a high and cozy vantage point within the home. Alert, playful and affectionate, Japanese Chins are devoted to their family members and make charming companions.
The folks of Innishfree (Kelly Family) became interested in the Chins after spending several years in Japan teaching English. They appreciated the history and cultural of the country and came to realize that the love of dogs was an international language. After being made to feel so welcomed by the Japanese people the Kelly's wrote a letter of appreciation to his Majesty the Emperor of Japan in hopes of bringing the two countries (and its people) closer together. They were honored with a reply of gratitude for their efforts which also resulted in recognition by TV, News Papers and the Japanese version of "Good Morning America". These FUN little dogs with their charm and noble heritage ever remind the Kellys of their ties to the Japanese people.

From Angies List: Purchased a Labrador puppy from Linda Kelley via the web. In the summer I placed the order for the puppy. The puppy arrived via N.W. airlines on 1/2/09. As promised the puppy is very healthy and a great puppy. It is everything indicated in the description and the process and transaction went extremely well. The puppy arrived with the required vaccines, paperwork, AKC, instruction. The puppy is extremely healthy and has a great personality. Upon having contacted Linda Kelly she provided very accurate information. Communication was great as each of us could assess what each was able to provide or receive. The schedule of what would happen was always reviewed by phone and accurate. Upon the arrival of the dog follow up was great along with further instruction. I would highly recommend Linda Kelly for the purchase of a puppy. The puppy arrived healthy, micro chipped and with full instructions. A great experience that I would use again.
**In fact many families come back when it's time to fetch another perfect hand-picked puppy.
Brodie is doing great! We're really enjoying him and can't wait for quail hunting! He is making quite a hit with how fast he's picking things up! The trainer has never seen a dog so excited to work and instead of taking Jr hunt test in June it will now be the 1st of May and she thinks he will be way ahead when it comes to SR hunt testing. I've already been contacted by 11 people wanting to know when I will be breeding him. So, we are really excited for his progress.
Just wanted to send a quick update about "Perfection Personified Percy" aka Percy the Piranha! Just kidding but his teeth are certainly sharp. We had our first vet visit and he was a big hit with the entire staff.....the vet was amazed that he "sits" on command at his young age. He is adapting very well and we've promised him a wonderful life.....he did ask me to send his love and puppy kisses to you and yours and his Foxy mama. Thank you once again for our amazing little Percy!
I just wanted to share some recent pix of Glovers. He's getting so big, so fast. We just adore him! He's so bright & extremely cute. He's pretty much got the "sit" stuff down. He's a really amazing dog and we just wanted to thank you again for everything!
