We've only ever met two before, so all knowledge we do have is pretty much from books and the internet. Anything and everything you could tell us would be greatly appreciated.
Don't know if this is allowed, mods you can delete this if need be.

This is a Shiba forum that's pretty active. I'm sure you could get loads of info and contacts from this board.

Great place to learn what's good and what's bad about them.

In the minds and hearts of Pharaoh Hounds-serious moments can be dissolved by a good frolicking run with stolen goods.

A friend of mine has a Shiba. Lovely boy, independent and very intelligent, but highly dog-aggressive and I've heard that DA (particularly towards the same sex) is common in the breed. Then again, it's not uncommon in Dobermans either.

I love Shibas, I think they have strong personalities and a wicked sense of humor.
