Looking For A Shiba Inu?

The breed is going through a popularity explosion, due to the extensive attention given them on social media. Please realize there is more to a Shiba Inu than all those cute photos - this is a tough, independent dog that can be challenging to even the most experienced dog owner. All the attention has created a demand - and a large number of puppy mills have been formed to fill that demand. PLEASE do your research and do not contribute to the misery the breeding dogs endure in these puppy factories. 

It is not easy to get a good quality Shiba - there are not a lot of responsible breeders in Canada so it may mean waiting for some time. It is worth the wait to get a healthy, happy puppy from parents who have been screened for genetic health issues, have good temperaments and actually look like the breed.

This website does not list actual puppies for sale. We do provide information on the breed, and maintain a Breeders Directory so that you can contact breeders directly.
