Shiba Inu

Shiba Inu image The Shiba Inu (Little Brushwood Dog) is the smallest in the Japanese Spitz family. He was traditionally used to flush birds from the underbrush and hunt small game. He stands about 14 - 16 inches at the shoulder. He is friendly, outgoing, has cat like tendencies and is a joy to be around. With quicksilver agility and legendary cunning, this is not an off leash dog. Early Socialization and obedience training is very important and encouraged! There are 3 recognized colors, Red, Red Sesame and Black and Tan. They shed their undercoat 2 times per year. Breeder's should screen for hips, patella's and eyes including glaucoma. Daily exercise, a secured fenced yard, regular brushing and nail clipping are required.
