Description and TemperamentEdit

3DS (NTSC): "A breed originating in Japan, its small, muscular body and curly tail are its best features."

3DS (PAL): "A breed originating in Japan, it is known for its small muscular body and curly tail."

The Shiba Inu is a brave, dignited, and strong dog. It originated in Japan, where it instantly became a favorite. However, if you want an easy, trainable dog, do not consider obedience trials for this breed, as it is very independent and quite difficult when training.

Bold, independent and headstrong, the Shiba Inu is brimming with self-confidence. It is lively outdoors, yet calm indoors, as long as they get daily exercise. It may be aggressive with strange dogs of the same gender and may chase cats. It is a hardy breed, ready for adventure. Some tend to be headstrong and domineering. It is territorial, alert, and reserved with strangers- ingredients making an excellent watchdog. It is quite vocal- some bark a lot, and may even "scream" when excited. It is characterized by its small ears and curled tail.

At the Nintendogss + Cats Club Kennel, the Shibe Inu comes in Red and Black & Tan. If the player chooses "Surprise me!" they may find a pure white Shibe Inu.
