The Shiba Inu


 
Introducing the Shiba Inu

Height: Males 14.5 to 16.5 inches, Females 13.5 to 15.5 inches,  Height over the upper limits is a disqualification in the show ring.

Weight: The weight varies according to height up to about 25 pounds. 

Life Expectancy: About 15 years.

Colors: Red, Red Sesame, Cream and Black & Tan.  White/cream shadings are present on the legs, belly, chest and part of the face and tail - this is referred to as "urajiro". Cream is not preferred  in the show ring.

Coat: Dense double coat: a soft, wooly undercoat with coarse guardhairs. 

Description: : It is a medium boned, moderately compact and well muscled dog with a generally spitz-like appearance.  Because of its hunting heritage, it should be quick, agile and able to turn on a dime. 

Temperament: Bold, fearless, energetic, watchful, determined, alert, *Aloofness is allowed in the breed standard, but I strive to produce outgoing animals.

With Children:  As long as they are raised with them they truly enjoy children, but will upset with unruliness.

With Pets: Are known to be dog aggressive, but if raised with and conditioned properly, can easily get along well with other animals.

Character: Shiba Inu are curious, cheerful, and watchful. They bond closely with their owners. They are easily housebroken and bark in-frequently.

Watch-dog:  Medium to High, suspicious of strangers.

Guard-dog:  Medium

Learning Rate:  High, intelligent and creative, self thinking.

Energy Level: Moderate. Daily walks, running in a small yard, leaping about on furniture and a good game of ball can suffice. Shibas do need mental stimulation: a bug hunt, a game of hide and seek, or teaching their people a new trick.

Health Problems: As a breed, Shibas can rightfully be described as sturdy, healthy little dogs, able to withstand the rigors of outdoor life as well as enjoying the comfort of indoor living. They are easy keepers, and can run for miles with an athletic companion or take their exercise chasing a tennis ball around the backyard. Their catlike agility and resilience provide good resistance to injury, and the "natural" size and symmetrical proportions lessen susceptibility to conditions caused by structural imbalance. 

Despite these assets, Shibas do have some hereditary defects which all reliable breeders screen for in their breeding stock. Patellar luxation is common in toy breeds and sometimes appears in Shibas. It causes loose kneecaps and is usually not severe enough to be detrimental to a Shiba's life, but should not be bred. An experienced veterinarian can detect this condition by palpation. Hip dysplasia occasionally occurs - mild dysplasia will not show any adverse clinical effects and the dog will lead a normal life; but again, should not be part of any breeding program.  Eyes should be checked eyes for hereditary eye defects;  few are severe enough to cause blindness or interfere with a dog's life, but dogs with eye defects that are potentially blinding should not be bred. 

Living Conditions:  Can adapt to city or country life.  A house with a fenced yard or kennel is preferable.

Excercise: Needs daily, exercise.Puppies need firm handling and knowledgeable training and should be handled by numbers of people.

Grooming: He should be groomed a couple of times a week with a  brush.

Country of Origin:  Japan

History:  The Shiba Inu was developed in Japan, to flush birds and small game and occasionally used to hunt wild boar. Now they are primarily kept as pets, both in Japan and the US.  Quite possibly, a Shiba puppy is the most appealing of any of the dog breeds.  It has been said that a Shiba looks like a live teddy bear. But the Shiba is not a toy - it is a very lively little dog with a unique set of characteristics. Each one is a individual with his/her own personality, but there are some traits that are considered typical of the breed. 

Around 7000 BC the ancestors of today's Japanese breeds accompanied the earliest immigrants to Japan. Archaeological excavations of the shell-mounds left by the Jomonjin show that they had small dogs in the 14.5 to 19.5 inch range. 

In the third century BC, a new group of immigrants brought their dogs to Japan.   These dogs bred with the descendants of the Jomonjin dogs, and produced canines known to have pointed, erect ears and curly/sickle tails. In 7 AD, the Yamato Court established a dogkeeper's office which helped maintain the Japanese native breeds as an integral part of Japanese culture. Although the country was closed to foreigners from the 17th through 18th centuries, some European and Chinese dogs were imported and crossed with native dogs living in the more populated areas. Dogs in the countryside, however, remained relatively pure. 

From the original Japanese native dogs, six distinct breeds in three different sizes developed. They are the Akita (large size); Kishu, Hokkaido, Shikoku, Kai (medium size); and the Shiba (small size). 

World War II nearly spelled disaster for the Shiba and the other breeds, and most of the dogs that did not perish in bombing raids succumbed to distemper during the post-war years.  After the war, Shibas were brought from the remote countryside and breeding programs were re-established. The remnants of the various bloodlines were combined to produce the breed as it is known today.
