Dai


Dai is a five year old Shikoku male from Japan who needed a new home. Mac and his family were happy to welcome a new Shikoku into their family. Dai will need some socialization with other dogs, having grown up as a single pet to an older couple. He will need to learn English, or Mac will need to learn Japanese!

Special Thanks to Shigeru Kato for all of his help in bringing this confident new addition to our pack into Canada from Japan.

We are all excited to have some of Dai's offspring running around in the near future.


About the Shikoku


The Shikoku is not a large Shiba! These loving dogs are honest, straight forward and open in their approach to people. Submissive to the family, alert and curious they are tenacious trackers and energetic companions.

Males are about 52 cm (20 inches) at the withers and bitches are a bit longer and not quite as tall (46 cm). Colours are black sesame and red sesame. The Shikoku shares its coat type with the Shiba and most other Nordic breeds having a dense undercoat with coarse top guard hairs. The tail is carried curled on the back.

The Shikoku is a hunting dog that was primarily bred on the island of Shikoku in Japan. These dogs are not common in Japan, with fewer than 25 outside of Japan. The breed was declared a Natural Monument in 1937.

In the early hours of October 23rd 2005 Mura (Murasaki Go Ayumisou)(Japanese Import) X Ishi (Shunkou Go None Ishiyamasou)(Japanese Import) whelped four female pups. This is the first ever litter of Shikokus in Canada and the first ever litter born of Japanese imported Shikokus whelped in North America!
