      About Shiba Inus

      Shiba Inus are an ancient breed from Japan, bred originally to hunt boar, bears and birds. These loyal and loving dogs are also very independent, and have a bold, confident personality. They have a curly, fluffy tail and an adorable, alert expression that makes them appear almost fox-like. Shibas are medium sized, relatively quiet, and can do well in apartments or homes.
