About Shiba Inus
Shiba Inus are among the smallest of Japanese-bred dogs, and they’re also the most popular. These loyal but independent, fluffy but regal dogs look like a cross between a stuffed animal and a fox. There’s a lot to love about Shiba Inus!
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!
There’s just something adorable about the Shiba Inu’s fluffy face and almost cartoon-like appearance!
The Shiba Inu walks through life with an air of sophistication and serenity that is unmatched by many other breeds.
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.
