Dogs 101 Shiba Inu Japanese Dog - Animal Facts
The Shiba Inu (柴犬) is the smallest of the six original and distinct spitz 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 looks similar to and is often mistaken for other Japanese dog breeds like the Akita Inu or Hokkaido, but the Shiba Inu is a different breed with a distinct blood line, temperament and smaller size than other Japanese dog breeds.
The Shiba inu has been identified as a basal breed that predates the emergence of the modern breeds in the 19th Century.
