I am very pleased to inform that Japan Kennel Club on October 30, 2015 changed the standard of Japanese Terrier and added information about “natural tail”. They did this after my proposal made on July 30, 2015 and my photographic documentation (JKC took pattern after my Tsubasa).
JKC authorities have already modified the standard in their documentation (THERE) and at the same time, have started process of modification the standard published in Federation Cynologique Internationale. Today, I received an information that the procedure of amendment is over. Soon, the FCI will apply changes and publish the new modified standard.
The previous changes in Japanese Terrier have been made on May 6, 1995.
