Loyal and Affectionate

The Shiba Inu is a reserved pooch who doesn’t give affection easily to strangers—but is a loyal companion to members of his pack.

Aloof and Independent

The Shiba is an independent dog who tolerates loneliness better than most breeds, yet is always ready for his family to come home from work!

Absolutely Adorable

There’s just something adorable about the Shiba Inu’s fluffy face and almost cartoon-like appearance!

Zen-like Personality

The Shiba Inu walks through life with an air of sophistication and serenity that is unmatched by many other breeds.

Easy Grooming

Although your Shiba Inu will shed twice per year, grooming your pooch is a cinch and shouldn’t take long at all.

Fun for the Whole Family

A well-trained and well-socialized Shiba Inu—like most dogs—makes an outstanding family pet for years to come.
