Description from - Skiandu Shibas
"Inquisitive, alert, playful. A little bit aloof with strangers. They have their individual traits which make each one special and endearing. They are hunters to the bitter end, loving to chase rats and mice and catch the birds. They are not one to be safe off the lead, tending to suddenly go "deaf" and race off on their hunt. Shibas are very headstrong, independent and full of themselves, they can be trained on a give & take basis. They love to rough and tumble and often take up the top spot in households with large dogs. Rottweillers, Akitas, any large dog is just right for a shiba as they can play those roughest of games that the shiba loves"------"They keep themselves relatively clean. you have to watch the dew claws as they don't wear down, so need trimming regularly." A small compact dog of the Spitz type the coat is thick and plush in appearance. They have a double coat, harsh top coat and thick, dense and soft undercoat. The undercoat moults normally once a year and the best way to get it out is to pluck the tufts as you see them.
Colours are red, red and white, black/tan and white, sesame and white. Pigmentation is black
