This Japanese breed of dogs is very old: the first Kishu Inu appeared there several hundred years ago! It measures between 45cm and 55cm and looks like a Spitz: well muscled and powerful legs, straight and erect ears on the head, long bushy tail curled over the back. The hair is well supplied, short and soft on the whole body and is longer on the neck and the head. The coat is mostly white. It is a very brave and excellent hunter dog, it will need to exercise a lot. It is very loving and loyal to its family if socialized from a young age, it gets along well with children and other animals in the home.
