UPDATED November 22, 2015

We have puppies that are ready for their new homes now.  If you are interested in one of these pups or in a puppy in the future please fill out our questionnaire so we know a little about your family and dog experience.  This will help us to match you with the right puppy for your family and to answer questions you have about the breed. 

Pups are current on vaccinations and worming and are family raised in our home.  We start house training at an early age and most of our pups are very close to being house trained when they go to their new families!

If you have any questions you may e-mail me at kayobishiba@gmail.com

 PUPPIES ARE HERE!  These pups are ready to go the end of October.

We have two cream males ready to go to their new homes after the Holidays. $1200 each. 

Beautiful Klee Kai  litter born October 1st  They will be ready to go to their new families after they are 8 weeks old.  We have a black & white male with one blue eye and one brown eye.

A gray and white female with brown eyes.

And a black & white male with brown eyes. I expect them to be miniature in size.  

Parents are CH Wiebelhusky's On Eagles Wings and Arctikkai Kristara.  Both parents are OFA certified for Patellas, eyes, heart and thyroid.

Pet pups are $2000 with a spay/neuter requirement.  Breeding/show prospects available to local people only as I do not feel I am able to properly mentor people that are not in my area.

 We also have a white boy available, he was born on August 9th and has a small eye, it affects his looks, but she is otherwise healthy.   He is $800.

Lady is a sweet sesame gal looking for a loving family.  She is crate trained and housebroken.  She loves attention from adults and kids.  She was born May 20, 2007. Her adoption fee is $200 

Foxy is a rescue  about 1 year old.  She is a Shiba mix and is small...about 14 pounds.   She grew up with other small dogs and the family that had her from her original home asked if I would help them place her in a home with other dogs as she was only happy when their friends dog came to play.  Otherwise she sat in her bed.  She is here now and very sweet and loving, but I do think she would be best with another dog as a companion and playmate.  Her adoption fee is $300.

If you are looking to add a Shiba Inu or Alaskan Klee Kai to your family in 2015 please fill out a questionnaire as I have started a waiting list. Both Shiba Inu and Klee Kai litters are planned.  I can answer your questions and get to know your family in order to match you with the best puppy for your home.

Puppies from previous litters shown below to show how their color changes as they get older.

We always get people asking if their pup is a red or sesame.  Red and sesame Shiba pups have a smoky gray black color, that will disappear as they grow. The inside of the legs, tummy, chest and face will lighten a lot.  As the soft fuzzy baby coat is replaced their adult color will start to show.  Fully bright adult color is not achieved until they are about 1 year old. The photos above are of red and sesame pups and you can tell the difference!

This is one of the dark sesame girls above at 10 weeks of age.  Notice how much she lightened! The black tipping on her tail is an indicator that she will get some black guard hairs in her adult coat.   She has gone to her new home.  

If you do not see what you are looking for please go to www.shibas.org and check their breeder referral list.  You may contact people in your area from that list and they will be  able to let you know of other reputable breeders in the area. 

 If you are flying in to pick up your puppy you will need to purchase you own carrier.  Ask the airline you are using what size carrier will fit as a carry on.  Each airline has different requirements.  The puppy must be 8-10 weeks old to fly with you.  I will supply the health papers for the flight at no extra cost, but if the puppy needs a microchip or rabies vaccine these costs will be paid for by the buyer.

Our vet will NOT do this procedure due to unnecessary health risks.  I have seen several dogs that I have sold who have been neutered before 12 weeks of age and they look significantly different from other Shibas in their litter. It has been known to cause an increase in orthopedic problems such as hip dysplaysia and patellar luxation, as well as incontinence issues!

Please read this information.

The time to spay or neuter is between 6 and 9 months of age.  I like to see them at least 18 to 20 pounds.
