Originally held as a sacred animal in China, this small, friendly dog has a highly distinctive personality and makes a fine family companion. Prospective owners should be aware, however, that its long coat requires frequent grooming. Books in the comprehensive and popular Barron’s Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals series advise on feeding, health care, housing, and all other important aspects of responsible pet ownership. Each title is individually written from first page to last by a pet trainer, veterinarian, or other pet-care specialist. All Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals are filled with high-quality photos and instructive line art.
