The Japanese or Nippon Terrier

Terrier head view

The Japanese Terrier is not recognized by the Canadian Kennel club, so most of the information I have on it is stuff I found online. As such, I don't claim that it is correct. (Always question any information you find online!)

Probably descended from smooth-haired Fox Terriers imported from Holland in 1702, the Nippon (Japan) Terrier originated in Nagasaki as a cross between the smooth haired Fox Terrier and the local, probably smaller, dogs. It is considered a toy breed and not a terrier, and the breed standard can be found here:

It is also called the Nihon Teria.

I've created this background set for Japanese Terrier fans, breeders, or rescue organizations to use. I require a link back to this page or to http://post.queensu.ca/~june/graphics.html and credit on the same page you use the graphics on, as soon as you put them up. You must copy the graphics to your own server. Terms are the same for commercial as personal use, and you may not use my graphics in a clip-art collection. I am registered with Digimarc, and I keep my original artwork and .psd files, so can easily prove the images are mine if there is a copyright infringement.
