In Japanese, “Shiba” refers to something small, so the breed’s name literally translates to small dog in their native country.
Shibas are loyal, alert, attentive dogs who alternate between periods of calm and increased activity. They are independent, but nevertheless make very good family dogs.
Their natural habitat was the mountainous region facing the Sea of Japan, where they were used to hunt small game and birds. As such, Shibas have strong prey drives.
