The Shiba Inu is descended from the primitive dogs of the ancient people of Japan. They were bred to hunt small wild game along with boar and bear. The Akita is the largest of the Japanese Spitz-type breeds followed by the Kishu, Shikoku, Hokkaido, and Aia with the Shiba being the smallest.
Some say the name Shiba means "brushwood", after its hunting terrain or the color of the brushwood leaves when they turn red in the fall. Inu means dog in Japanese. World War II nearly spelled disaster for the Shiba, and most of the dogs that did not parish in bombing raids succumbed to distemper during the post-war years. After the war, Shibas were brought from the remote countryside, and breeding programs were established. The remnants of the various bloodlines were combined to produce the breed as it is know today.
The Shiba is a medium sized dog. Females are 13 1/2 to 15 1/2 inches tall, the males are 14 1/2 to 16 1/2 inches tall at the withers. Heights over or under are disqualified in the show ring. The weight of the Shiba is dependent on the size but not to exceed 25 pounds. The female of the breed should look feminine and males should have a masculine appearance. This breed is medium boned, compact, well muscled and very agile. This can be a very active breed as a puppy but does seem to mellow with age, although still energetic.
