Jomon Shiba

Interesting discussion thread going on about the Jomon Shiba over at the Nihon Ken Forum

The Shiba Inu Hozonkai (Shibaho) broke away from NIPPO in the 1950's, and began breeding Shiba back toward structure found in ancient dogs whose bones have been unearthed in Japan. This has resulted in a very different Shiba, with shallow stops, long thin faces, large teeth, thinner/longer and more agile builds.


  1. Wow! I really liked! Where I can find more information.. like as temperament or height?

  2. Minini, there's not much info out there in English. The standard is the same as the Nippo Shiba standard.
