It seems that more Japanese own dogs than ever. This Shiba Inu is native to Japan. It is a hunting dog. While Shiba Inu's are wonderful pets, they were bred to be a hunter. Shiba Inu's are not to be let near other dogs. While this dog is small and friendly, they are all muscle and can be vicious with other pets.
