The Shiba Inu just might be the oldest (but still popular today!) dog breed on Earth!
The Shiba Inu is the smallest of the original Japanese breeds and are actually the most genetically similar to wolves, suggesting that it’s among the oldest domesticated dog breeds. Despite that, the Shiba only just came to American in the 1950s and was officially recognized by the AKC in 1992. Since then, our Shiba Inu puppies for sale have been stealing the hearts of our customers. If you want to see pictures of our Shibas, just take a look at our available puppies page!
Shiba Inus are very low-maintenance, for those who want less drama in their lives!
Shibas have a self-cleaning coat that repels dirt, so they have minimal grooming requirements. They are well known for being very clean dogs, with the tendency to groom themselves like cats! They come in a few colors which include, red, black and tan and white. Shibas are so regal and beautiful, they have been dominating people’s instragram feeds for many years and show no slowing down!
Don’t be worried that a Shiba Inu doesn’t want to be your friend!
Shiba Inus can be a little standoffish around strangers, but are fiercely loyal to their families. They are adept at learning all kinds of tricks, but they need a firm, patient hand with training. They need some exercise daily, but do well in small, urban environments. A few walks daily, a rousing game of fetch (where you might be the one fetching) or learning a new trick is all the Shiba needs to burn off any excess energy.
