Japanese Chin / Maltese Hybrid Dog

Information and Pictures

A long-haired white with black Jatese is standing in grass and it is looking to the right of its body

Maggie the full-grown Jatese weighs 8 pounds."Her father was a purebred 5-lb. Maltese and her mother was a purebred 7-lb. Japanese Chin. Loves everyone she sees and also loves her cat that she picked out from adoption. She has very small bones and is mostly hair."

Other Names



The Jatese is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Japanese Chin and the Maltese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Blue the Jatese puppy at 12 weeks old—"Blue has an excellent temperament with our children. He loves to please and loves to be pampered. He sheds very little fur. My 9-year-old son is allergic to dogs but has no reaction to him. Blue does not bark that much. We are working on potty training him, teaching him where to sleep along with some tricks."
