The Shiba Inu is a world-famous breed that hails from the land of the rising sun; Japan. It is a medium-sized dog but is on the smaller side. However, what isn’t small is the Shiba’s huge personality! It is a natural guard dog and is very protective over those it loves. Shibas make excellent companion dogs and are naturally full of beans. As dog models, these pooches have become prevalent in pop-culture, particularly after the rise of the “Doge” internet meme. In Japan, they’ve been used extensively in film and television productions. However, brands across the world can’t get enough of these smiley, high-energy dogs. Their short coat, curly tail, and fox-like features have seen them become a hit in countless productions. Additionally, they come in a variety of colours, though their most famous variation is red.
