shiba inu

The Shiba Inu is one the smallest Japanese dogs which was bred to hunt in the dense growth and mountain regions of Japan. The Shiba Inu is known for its keen senses and excels as a companion and watchdog. The Shiba Inu is very muscular and has a double coat that keeps the canine warm in cooler temperatures.

The Shiba Inu is thought to have been descended from primitive dogs of the people of Japan. Originally developed to hunt bears, boars, and wild game, the name Shiba means brushwood from the dogs natural hunting terrain and Inu means dog in Japanese. The dog was almost on the brink of extinction in World War II due to bombing raids and disease, but has since been able to repopulate to safe levels.
