My name is Niki Libarios and I run shibainuhawaii.com along with Chris Luke. We have an 8-month-old black-and-tan Shiba Inu named Katsumi Firefox, and we live in Makiki. This is a photo from our July Shiba Inu Hawaii Meet Up at the Bark Park. We don’t know all the owners’ names, unfortunately, but we do know all the dogs’ names! From left: Madison, Jiro, Mika (not a Shiba, but honorary play-date invitee), Katsumi Firefox, Don, Tobi, Sachi, Ami, Kuma, Renji and Miki. (I’m the one kneeling, third from the left with a blue printed shirt.)
Shibas are originally from Japan and were bred as hunting dogs. They are double-coated Spitz-like dogs that come in four different colors: red, sesame, black-and-tan and cream (not recognized by the AKC). They are extremely smart, and can be difficult to train because they are so headstrong. Shibas are very independent (some people compare them to cats) but also loyal to their human companions.
