Kai Puppies Over in Saitama

Had a few hours open up in my schedule, so I drove up to Saitama to take a look at some new Kai pups over at a friend's kennel.

Their mother Peromi is the most famous Kai in Japan. She was raised on a television show that was promoting the 6 Japanese breeds. A google search brings up a lot of different stuff
She's got a nice temperament as well as some mad mothering skills. There are 8 pups in the litter! They were born on September 17th I believe.

Their father Asahi I like quite a bit. He's sired several litters now, and his nice even temperament seems to carry over a lot.

That's two of the boys there, and one of the females. All the pups look to have some brindle, but will be black brindle (kuro-tora), and the pups were quite friendly. I snapped some video as well and will get that uploaded somewhere if I have the time.


  1. Wow, Mayaa really resembles her father, at least in that picture and angle. I had to do a double-take!

    Some pictures of her a few weeks ago, at 18 months old, for comparison -

    1. She does! Asahi looks a bit different than usual at the moment due to being out of coat.
