LKA – 15th December 2018 

Japanese Shiba Inu 


A high-quality entry awaited me; all dogs presented were in good condition and had a lovely nature. So concerned  to learn that two exhibits were stolen the night after the show but delighted to hear that they were swiftly returned to their owners. A huge relief.

Great class very close between first and second.

Scored with a most handsome profile and front construction. Balanced throughout. triangular head with ears well set, super dark eyes, straight forelimbs down to tight feet, arch to neck, ribs developing, good for tailset and carriage, gentle turn to stifle, steady mover with purpose.  Very happy and outgoing baby.

Pleasing youngster but a little immature in head shape and not quite the proportions at this stage in his development. Decent coat and movement. Tail set could be a little better but still very young and just needs a little more time.
