Another shiba, but this one is kinda unusual-looking. Apparently coloration like this pops up occasionally in shiba inu lines, and is considered a ‘major fault’. (‘Cream’ color variation, not recognized by any kennel club.) Don’t tell her that, though, because she knows she’s fine just the way she is.
A close-up, after the break.
My male cream shiba is virtually identical! He’s 14 now! Not sure why the cream Shibas get poo pooed and ostracized. It is known among the cream shibas that the red or gray highlights identify them as true cream shibas! They are beautiful dogs and all I get are compliments on how handsome he is! People say he can’t be 14 because he doesn’t look a day over 8! The cream shiba is especially popular in my area and it’s all I see now in the US. I never have seen any other type. I bet we see this type eventually become its own breed in the future!
Could well be. They’re gorgeous dogs.
Do you have any pictures of yours online? I’d love for you to post a couple of links in the comments here if you do!
