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.

Questions & Answers
The cost of a Shiba puppy is dependent on several factors as well as your preferences. For instance, certain characteristics can be less common than others, and thus be more expensive. You could also pay a premium by going with a more experienced breeder instead of a new breeder. We are confident there will be an option in your range within our network.

By choosing to go through Uptown Puppies to find your perfect new pooch, you can be assured that you are being connected to only those breeders and businesses who have been thoroughly vetted and are committed to providing a healthy and happy pup. Unfortunately many breeders are bad actors who do not care about the animals!
You should be wary of puppy mills when looking for puppies on your own. They are horrible places where puppies are bred with no regard to their welfare or care for the puppies or the parents. Oftentimes animals from these types of places can have medical problems that arise down the road. Work with Uptown Puppies to avoid this fate!
