Shiba Inu Information
The Shiba Inu has been part of Japan’s culture for centuries but only recently made its American debut about 60 years ago. The breed almost reached extinction during World War II but through careful breeding efforts is now populous once again, which is great for people looking for a small, beautiful, independent dog.
The Shiba has a fox-like appearance and fur that is varying color of red or black and tan, both with white markings. He is a confident and determined dog with a mind of his own, making obedience training a necessity. If you’re looking for a needy, cuddly dog, this isn’t it. His personality is more like a cat – which is great for people looking for a more independent pet.
