Dogs - Japanese Shiba Inu

Shiba Inu means, "Little dog." The Shiba Inu originated in central Japan where they were bred for hunting all kinds of animals. They are the smallest hunting dogs. They are fast, cunning, and unafraid. Shibas make good watchdogs. 

The Shiba Inu has a distinctive bushy tail curled over his back. The thick, short coat has a coarse texture. He has short, erect ears and an alert expression. The eyes are slanted and the face is fox-like.

Height: males 39.5 cm at shoulder, females 36.5 cm

Class: This Spitz type dog falls in the Utility Group.
A dog may have the cunning mind of a fox, but WE can have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2, 16

The Shiba Inu is fairly new in South Africa, but there are a few breeders.
