The Shiba Inu (dog) is often considered the national dog of Japan.
My family used to breed these dogs. They are originally hunting dogs so they like their own space, will bolt out the door if given the chance, and will hunt any critters in the backyard for free.
Their furry and curly tails compliment their short fur, and their face looks like a fox.
We managed to round up some pics for the Shiba for your enjoyment.
They are great dogs.
Shiba’s are known for their clean looking face.
Short hair, very fluffy.
This guy seems to be a mix of Corgy and Shiba. Note the short legs…
