Shiba Inu dogs were originally bred for hunting. They have a foxy appearance, similar to Akita dogs, but much smaller in stature. This dog does well with active owner in a city, suburban or rural home.
Shiba Inu is a fastidious breed. These dogs often feel the need to maintain themselves in a clean state. They can often be seen licking their paws and legs, go out of their way to keep their coats clean, and avoid stepping in puddles, mud and dirt.
