This 1930's color woodblock print by Ohara Shoson is called "Pug Dog," but really it's a Japanese Chin. Shoson was known for his kacho-e - elegantly simple portrayals of flora and fauna - which he geared toward the Western market. 
-- Note: Shoson worked under a number of names: Ohara Koson and Ohara Hoson are the same artist.
