My owners recently saw a New Guinea Singing Dog at the San Diego Zoo. It was remarkably like a Shiba Inu. The NG Singing Dog had the same red coloring, slanted almond eyes, pointy ears, and fluffy tail just like shiba's. Unlike shibas that bark and sing, the NG singing dogs only "sing", with an unique howls that was eerily similar to shibas. Based on genetic testing by the researchers at the San Diego Zoo, the NG Singing Dog is the missing link between wolves and modern day dogs. I wonder if Shibas are kind of in that category too, which could explain our unique personality and our stubbornness (ie, untrainable to be off leash).

Well, 3 of the shibas went to their new owners this past weekend, so only 3 left. Two more will be leaving soon. All the puppies no longer have the shiba pup's "black mask", and now all look like adult shibas. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/shiba-inu-puppy-cam

So far the site has had close to 9 million hits during the past 7 weeks. The puppies are 8 weeks old, and will be going to their new homes this weekend. The owners of the puppies have decided to keep one, but the next few days are the last chance to see all of them together. Check out some older clips of them too so you can see how much shiba pups change from tiny stubby nose furball into a fox like dog.
