The Shiba Inu may seem slightly aloof at first, but it is typically an inquisitive, good-natured, bright and active dog.

The Shiba Inu's coat is somewhat soft, thick and plush to the touch. It has a double coat, with a strong, straight outercoat and a soft, dense undercoat. The Shiba is the smallest of the Japanese native breeds of dog and was originally developed for hunting by sight and scent in the dense undergrowth of Japan's mountainous areas.
Males 14½ inches to 16½ inches at withers. Females 13½ inches to 15½ inches. The preferred size is the middle of the range for each sex. Average weight at preferred size is approximately 23 pounds for males, 17 pounds for females. Males have a height to length ration of 10 to 11, females slightly longer. Bone is moderate.

Coat color is red, red sesame, black, or black and tan, all with white markings. Its spitz heritage is revealed in its dense coat, small ears (to reduce heat loss and frostbite), wedge-shaped muzzle, thick fur between the toes, and bushy tail that curls forward over the back.
