I have an Akita, Great Dog. The Shiba is just like the Akita in that they are cat like, in-terms of cleaning them self...However, teh Shiba has much more energy then the Akita...She will be very loyal and make a great watch dog!

Okay, since we're showing off new puppies [:D] My son and I got her last month (I'm a single parent). He's wanted a dog for a long time. This pic was taken 5/21. She's already about twice that size. Pure breed GS. --RR [url]http://community.webshots.com/photo/78286947/78415851qyljeu[/url]

Cute puppy. I always wanted an akita,hubby didn't want a big dog, so I have spaniels. My last cocker puppy(now 1 year) she never had an off button and still doesn't. She is constant go. I wouldn't trade her though. Good luck with the little one.

That is a bad ass Shepard. Did you buy him locally? Do you mind if I ask how much you paid? I have been thinking about getting one for awhile.

My sig pic is a 1/2 shebu 1/2 shepard mix. GREAT DOG, very hyper and love to run. If you jog, that's the perfect dog for you. Expect it to have a lot of energy throughout its life.

I have one, crazy ass dogs they are. Very attention hungry, at least ours is. If you start them out young they make great hunting dogs. Thats what they were bread for in Japan, according to what I'm told to hunt small and medium game. All the shebas I've ever seen are great around people even young kids but if they don't know you all that well or don't see you all that often and you make a sudden move before they are ready, they will get defencive. They tend not to start shit with other dogs but most also won't back down from another dog regardless of the other dogs size. Ours got into it with a dalmation once and wouldn't back down i had to pick him up and carry his ass back home. He also got into it with a huskie once, that was funny as hell but scary at the same time when he didn't back down the huskie decided it would be better to be friendly. They are great dogs, you have a friend for life thats for sure.

Funny thing is, next door to my parents house is a big dalmation, they go nose to nose thru the fence, the little sheba doesnt take any crap. Tough little girl.

I see you're from AZ. There are some good breeders here local but I wanted a "large shepherd" so I went with a breeder in TX that specializes in large boned dogs. You can see their website at [url]http://www.heidelberg-usa.com/[/url] I was on a waiting list for awhile and his puppies are pricy ($800 and up). Like everything else you get what you pay for. If you're more interested in a "working dog" there are a couple local AZ breeders I can refer you to. --RR

it gets better, wait till she gets her first rabbit or a tree rat or other critter, just make sure she don't mix it up with racoons, ours has done that before and was lucky. though i almost crapped myself seeing this dog walking up to the back door draggin a racoon by the neck that was damn near as big as him. We could hear it but didn't see the fight, it was over in a matter of like 10seconds. my sister used to keep a big plastic tub of dog food in the shed and the racoons figured out how to open the thing. The dog went in and found a racoon eating his food and delt with it. And we told my sister not to put the dog food in the shed because it would attract un wanted wild animals.

nice pooch!!!Akita's are a Japanese breed, once used to guard the emperor's family and palace. Great watch dogs, and very protective. Japan's equivalent to the German Shepard.....

I think Sibas are great small/medium sized pets. They are not very common around here. They were runing about $800 from private breeders. I did a lot of research and was ready to get one. Then my duaghter saw Shiloh. We got a Beagle. She's a very affectionate girl. I knew they were a active hunting breed. I was not aware of the baying. When I asked the breeder if beagles barked much, she said no. Next time I'll read into it more and ask if they make much noise of any kind (barking baying howling etc). Three years later, the beagle is a wonderful girl, but I should have gotten the Shiba. You did good, enjoy your pup.
