Mindo-Camera Critters


I met Mindo on my daily walk recently. This canine is a beautiful example of a Shiba Inu  Our rescue dog, Lexie, is part Shiba Inu and looks like the one below that I found on the internet.  Lexie is terribly afraid of a camera so I'm not able to get really good photos of her.

The smallest of the Japanese native breeds, the Shiba was originally developed for hunting in the dense undergrowth of Japan's mountainous areas. Alert and agile with keen senses, he is also an excellent watchdog and companion. His frame is compact with well-developed muscles and he possesses a double coat that can be black and tan, red or red sesame. (Credit: American Kennel Club)

  6. An attractive looking dog and easily trainable. I see a few around here and they are very well behaved when out with their humans.

  10. This looks like the breed of dog a friend has. The red coated ones look like little foxes.

    Our pooch doesn't like cameras, though he's not afraid. I think he's seen one too many flashes.

  11. I remember the web cam site a few years back of a litter of Shiba pups. I can't tell you how many hours I spent watching those little darlings.
