Shiba (Shiba Inu)

Shiba is an almost 2 year old Shiba Inu that I got about a year ago. She likes to walks and romp! She looks like a fox, and for as young as she ism she listens pretty well and is smart! We have had dogs her age or pups that were very difficult and stubborn to train. Her tail also curls on her back like a bun!

The Shiba Inu is the smallest of the six original and distinct breeds of dog from Japan.

A small, agile dog that copes very well with mountainous terrain, the Shiba Inu was originally bred for hunting. It is similar in appearance to the Akita, though much smaller in stature.


Inu is the Japanese word for dog, but the origin of the prefix "Shiba" is less clear. The word shiba usually refers to a type of red shrub. This leads some to believe that the Shiba was named with this in mind, either because the dogs were used to hunt in wild shrubs, or because the most common color of the Shiba Inu is a red color similar to that of the shrubs. However, in old Japanese, the word shiba also had the meaning of "small", thus this might be a reference to the dog's small size. Therefore, the Shiba Inu is sometimes translated as "Little Brushwood Dog"

She looks so much like my dog Sheeba who is a shiba/basenji mix. they are really great dogs. My Sheeba is the sweetest dog we have ever had. She just has the most gentle personality and just loves everyone.
