UPDATED July 16, 2016
All puppies may not be listed, if we are still evaluating a litter for show potential. If you are interested 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. In addition I recommend you read our Buyer Info and Puppy Pricing pages. Pet pups are $1400-$1600 for Shibas, $1600 and up for AKK.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Ask us about our Extended Family program. This is an opportunity for local families who are interested in showing and breeding purebred Shiba Inu or Alaskan Klee Kai to own a quality show dog at a low cost. We do not charge more for show puppies as a co-ownership is maintained. I will be working with you and your dog to mentor you as you learn about the breed, showing and breeding dogs. We guarantee our show quality pups to be show quality and able to obtain an AKC Championship! Please send me an e-mail if you are interested in learning more.
We have a few adults available to local homes here in MN. We will not ship adult dogs. When adopting an adult dog please be patient and consider that most of them have grown up here and are not used to busy city life. They are used to other dogs as companions and most are good with cats. They are crate trained.
Soji is a big red boy. He is good with female dogs. He will bark at strangers that come here, so a quiet home would suit him better as he would bark at people walking by. He does not typically come up to people he does not know that come to visit, but is well mannered away from home and has never had any issues at shows with people petting him. He is good with kids 8 and up. Soji is currently in his new home on a 2 week trial.
Gracie is a 2 year old girl and is good with people she knows. Like her dad Soji she will bark at strangers, so a quiet home would suit her better as she would bark at people passing by. She is good with kids and other dogs, she is just too big to show. She is $600
Kissi is a miniature gray and white Klee Kai. She is good with other dogs and cats, likes walks, if you go her way! Typical Klee Kai, she will come up to people, but does not like strangers touching her head or being picked up. Kissi is 4 years old and is $600
If you are looking to add a Shiba Inu or Alaskan Klee Kai to your family in 2016 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.
You are welcome to come to our home to visit the pups and adults. Please call or e-mail for an appointment. Times that work best are usually between 9:00 am-3:00 pm If your plans change or you cannot make it at the scheduled time please call and let us know.
Please e-mail email@example.com for more information about adopting one of our puppies.

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.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND EARLY SPAY OR NEUTER FOR YOUR SHIBA!
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!
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.
